Over the past few months, Lion Brand has worked with a few bloggers on yarncrafting projects which require no knitting or crocheting.  This was a fun initiative for us because it was great to see what projects come to mind to people when they see a particular yarn. Many people don’t know how to knit or crochet but love using yarn in craft projects.  So, even if you do know how to knit or crochet, think about the crafting possibilities with yarn without using your hooks or needles- there’s so much you can create!

10 Minute No Sew Scarf from According to Kelly

Kelly spotlights our Amazing yarn by wrapping it around multiple times to create a scarf.  The self striping colorway in Amazing creates a beautiful unique accessory or garment.  After you make one of these, you might be tempted to try another in a different color!

Semi-Homemade Mohawk Beanie

Semi Homemade Mohawk Beanie from This Mama Makes Stuff

Carrie had a different approach to using our Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Roving Wool yarn, she mixed and matched colors for some funky cool mohawk beanie caps.  Once again, this is a no knit, no crochet, no sew project, check out her tutorial here.

Chunky Yarn Cuff

Erica Domesek, fashion forward blogger of P.S. I Made this, featured a D.I.Y tutorial utilizing our Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Mambo yarn to create a chunky bracelet.  This is a jewelry piece that’s sure to make a statement wherever you go.  Click here to see how she made this zebra-like cuff.

Holiday Yarn Trees

Lisa from Recaptured Charm took a sophisticated approach to creating yarn trees by crafting them in Silky Twist, Holiday Homespun and Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Glitter Eyelash. Her crafted trees have a classic look that can be appreciated year after year.  View the rest of her trees and the process here.

Yarn Pom Pom Garland

Mandy made some pretty big textured pom poms for her mantle with our textured yarns Silky Twist and Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Lofty Wool Blend.  This is a great craft for birthdays and other holiday celebrations, and it’s a fun craft for the kids as well.

Yarn Art

Yarn Art with Children from Make and Takes

Marie wanted to do a craft that was kid friendly so she could create a project with her children; she crafted a festive yarn art piece with Vanna’s Choice, Vanna’s Glamour and Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Glitter Eyelash.  Her children crafted creative holiday scenes with yarn as well, check out all of the projects here. Yarn can be used to recreate any kind of scene, just think of it as a unique paint!
