It’s the end of July, which means we’re wrapping up our month of patterns for outdoor dining!

Today is the annual Lion Brand company barbecue where all of Lion Brand’s staff gathers at our NJ facilities to enjoy some fun in the sun, burgers, and camaraderie. In honor of the barbecue (and our month of cookout/picnic/grilling patterns), I’ve selected a couple of great beginner- and novice-friendly patterns that make for perfect hostess/chef gifts for any cookouts or parties you attend this summer.
