Lion Yarn Book

Did you know that Lion Brand yarns have been on the market since 1878? We've produced pattern books throughout the years, and for those interested in historical or vintage patterns, you may find a "Lion Yarn Book" among antique store shelves or attic boxes.

For those who love antique patterns, you may want to check out our reprint of our 1916 pattern book featuring Lion Brand yarns available in the early 20th century. It's an amazing piece of history that will give you a peak at knitting & crochet during the turn of the century.

Interviews with Famous Yarncrafters

Talks from the Yarniverse VideoHave you ever wanted to ask your favorite knitting and crochet designers and teachers about their work? Whether they really swatch? Where they come up with their ideas?

Check out our video series where we ask top designers and teachers like Nicky Epstein, Franklin Habit, Lily Chin, Cookie A, and others the tough (and not so tough) questions about knitting, crocheting, and yarn!

View the video playlist.

Tip of the Week

Wipe out a Quaker oatmeal box. Poke a hole in the center of the top and feed your yarn through it. Place the skein into the box and close the top. (Sometimes I seal it with tape). You can let this onto the floor where it will keep your yarn clean and the cats from chasing it! Time to stop? Just pick it up and store it with your work, or pop it into the box too.

- Carol H.
