Another said: "It would definitely give Banksy a run for his money."

But it's not the first time that Caerleon has been in the spotlight for its crochet creations as some commenters pointed out.

Member Kathryn said: "There are always some beautiful bits dotted around Caerleon! Must take a trip up to have a proper look soon!"

The village has a number of knitted sculptures on its post boxes and lampposts. Just down the road from the flower wall there is a traffic bollard entirely covered in crochet with a couple on top.

The Random Acts of Crochet Kindness Facebook group has gathered more than 100,000 members. It is open to anyone who wants to show off their crocheting skills and share them with the wider public.

As a result people are finding adorable crochet designs in random places like shopping trolleys and park benches but it's all for a bit of fun.
