We’re so excited to have the newest Freia yarn in space this week- Yarn Bombs. These mega cakes of yarn are shawl balls on steroids: 860 yards, nearly half a mile of squishy, dreamy single-ply merino boasting the gorgeous ombré effect we adore from Freia. All the most popular colors are here, pumped up to mega skeins ready to be used for cozy shawls. All our most loved Freia patterns are ready to go with the Yarn Bombs. Check out some inspiration below.
- Single ply 100% US cruelty-free Merino wool
- 200g/7.06 oz – 786 meters/860 yards
- Hand Wash
- Gauge: 20-28 sts/28-36 rows over 4″ on US 3-7 (3.25-4.5mm) needles
Note that these patterns and photos show the regular sized shawl balls. They would be larger in the new Yarn Bombs!
Medialuna Shawl by Tina Whitmore
The gorgeous striping effect on this shawl is a great way to play with gradients. By splitting the balls and playing with the color melts you get a gorgeously soft color story.
Gentle miters and short rows come together in this shawl that works with the color to create beautiful texture. Wrap yourself in the giant wingspan of a Bomb-sized shawl. The pattern was originally designed for two shawl balls. It can be made with just one Yarn Bomb!
