In the first weekend of October, myself, and a few Lion Brand team members attended the Fall 2013 Knit & Crochet Show in Concord, North Carolina. We had a great time chatting with designers in the industry, discussing yarns and patterns, and making new connections. One of my favorite parts about the show is seeing the many different projects people have worked on using Lion Brand yarns.  Below, you’ll see some creative patterns from talented crocheters who were at the show – go ahead and check them out.
