We had a blast at Vogue Knitting Live here in New York City!
#VKLive saw the debut of one of Lion Brand Yarn Studio’s most magnificent window displays — the Fruit Stand! Lion Brand president David Blumenthal has always envisioned a fruit stand display and the result is a cornucopia of yarncrafting. Fans who stopped by couldn’t stop marveling at the details, which included hand-felted apples, amigurumi vegetables and an ingenious use of textures!

Are you familiar with the corner to corner crochet method? Corner to corner (C2C) crochet is a fun technique which involves working with a graph and crocheting your complete piece along a diagonal. In working the afghan, you start at one corner of your pixel square graph (typically the bottom right hand corner) and follow the graph row by row, building your stitches. You end up completing your afghan at the opposite corner (typically the top left hand corner).
These C2C blankets have become quite popular because of how quickly and easily they work up. They’re also appealing because you can easily customize the look of your project by creating a picture graph to work off of. Today, we’re excited to share with you Lion Brand®’s first crochet Corner to Corner blanket made by Sarah Zimmerman, from the popular blog, Repeat Crafter Me.
We worked with Sarah to bring you this exclusive Baby Owl pattern on lionbrand.com, so we hope you enjoy it!
