There are 5 yarnbombed trees at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook. Talk about Instagram-worthy!
Made up of over 250,000 feet of fabric cord, over 200 people volunteered their time to complete this project.
The colorful swirls on the tree coats in concert with the spindly tree limbs look like wild undersea creatures. The largest tree, resembling a psychedelic octopus.
Without any know-how in the crochet department, I wasn’t able to understand how yarnbombs work. How do they all join together? They’re so amazing.
I thought there would be an obvious “seam” or something like that. But my untrained eye didn’t pick up on anything. That only adds to my amazement.
These yarnbombed trees look like they were done with great care. As Spongebob would say – “a sweater with love in the stitches.”
