Welcome to B.hooked Crochet’s Yarn Review Series, where you can learn everything you need to know before making your purchase!
In our latest episode, I would like to introduce you to Lion Brand Shawl In A Ball, a really unique yarn in the Lion Brand family. The name says it all, with this yarn you can make and entire shawl with only one ball of yarn!
Yes, I tested it and it’s true!
Lion Brand Shawl In A Ball is available in 8 stunning colorways, ranging from neutrals to brights. Your sure to find a color that fits your style. Shown in the photo above are Mindful Mauve and Calming Desert, two of my personal favorites.
Shawl In A Ball is what I would call a “lighter” medium weight yarn. When paired with a 6 mm crochet hook, you get an ultra soft fabric with excellent drape. I can see why it’s perfect for shawls!
