Costa del Sol town prepares to be yarn-bombed

URBAN knitting, a relatively new form of street art, will be hitting Fuengirola’s Plaza de la Constitucion on April 6-14 with surprising results for all to see.

Students from local Finnish school Sofia Opisto have been working for months during their knitting lessons and at home to prepare colourful, knitted and crocheted pieces, and have had approval from the council to take over the square and surprise the public.

Urban knitting, also known as yarn bombing, is a worldwide, peaceful form of street art aimed to encourage all things feminine and aesthetic by covering anything from a door handle to benches, statues, trees or lampposts in wool.

Believed to have started in Houston, Texas, this ‘graffiti for grannies’ has become increasingly popular over the last 10 years and the non-permanent, artistic pieces can now be spotted all over the world.
