Lion Brand’s “7 Wonders of the Yarn World” Fashion Show

June 27th, 2014

Pin It

The Lion Brand Yarn Company attends The Craft & Hobby Association Conference and Tradeshow every year and a highlight of the event is our fashion show, hosted by Lion Brand spokesperson Vanna White. At this year’s show, we unveiled The 7 Wonders of The Yarn World – a series of sculptures designed by fiber artist Nathan Vincent. Each sculpture represented one of the 7 Wonders in yarn techniques, and we presented a fashion show where each technique was reflected in a variety of fashions.

The yarns featured in the show include Unique, Tweed Stripes®, Bonbons, Homespun, Heartland, Amazing®, Pound of Love®, Heartland Thick & Quick®, Hometown USA®, Homespun® Thick & Quick®, Wool-Ease®, Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®, Vanna’s Choice®, and Vanna’s Glamour®.

Below is a selection of garments from the show – click the image to get the free pattern. All of the patterns and yarns in the collection are available at lionbrand.com.

    School out for the summer and I’m trying to fine something to keep me busy

    thanks for the show – love the new stuff! looking forward to feeling that new yarn and to looing at the new patterns – that mosaic pattern coat is gorgeous!

  • Crochet Kate

    There are two items in the “lace” section of the fashion show that I loved. One was the shawl in Amazing that came into a V on the back, and the other was a little triangle shawl in Unique. Can anyone help me finding the names of these two patterns? They were beautiful!!! Kate

    This show was the bomb, fabulous fashion and looks like maybe it was under rated: as the audience appeared to be a group of disenchanted oofs.

  • Lynda in Oregon

    Hideous, ugly, and totally unappealing. Ugh, ugh, ugh!

  • Wandalea

    I love the cabled Coatigan with pockets, the next very thick cabled afghan, the Fan Lace Tunic, the Hexagon Granny afghan, the Granny Motif Coatigan in Unique, & the Ethnic coat. Thanks!

  • Suzi Wolfe

    In the “Colorwork” section there was a coat (or coatigan) in a “Folk” motif with a center panel in pink tones. Could you please mention the name of the pattern? Thanks so much!

    • Petrina

      That would be our Knit Panel Coat, and not yet available (but will be coming soon!). I recommend signing up for our New Patterns newsletter to keep up to date with the latest released patterns.

      • Petrina

        Suzi, the pattern for the coat you inquired about is now available. You can find it here.

  • Donna Lemmons

    Have all of the patterns been posted? Are they grouped together? (That would be nice!) If so, where can I find them? Loved the show!
