KUSA - It may be December, but an iconic Denver statue was ready to hit the beach this weekend.

On Sunday, a crochet enthusiast and hip-hop artist gave the "Dancers" statue at the Denver Performing Arts Complex a Colorado flag Speedo that would have made Borat proud. 

The crocheted Speedo took Kyle Williams more than 3 weeks to make. He says his knitting skills come from someone close to home.

"My grammy taught me when I was in third grade," he said. "We would make little blankets together."

The Speedo lasted for less than a day before it was taken off the Jonathan Borofsky statue. Williams says he not worried about the possible repercussions.

"[I] made a lot of people laugh and these people aren't going to remember that I got a ticket," he said. "They're going to remember that it's up there."

The Speedo could also be used for statue warmth in preparation for the cold front the week.
