I recently got a stash of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick Yarn from the flea market. It was an amazing deal of 7-1/4 skeins for $5. (Score!)
Most of the skeins are full, two are unlabeled, and one is actually a Loops & Threads (Michaels Brand) Charisma labeled yarn.
Because I have an unbelievable amount of yarn, I don’t go looking for yarn on purpose, but knowing how much these skeins are worth individually, I JUST COULDN’T pass it up. Many some of you can relate….
Anyway, because all the colors are different, I looked up the Lion Brand Website to find some patterns that I could potentially use this yarn for. I’m a crocheter, so the patterns are all crochet patterns. The best thing about this thick yarn is the large sized hooks! All the pattern listed use a size N-hook or bigger.
Here’s my list of projects I came up with for this specific type of yarn that I look forward to trying to use up in the near future.
(1) This is definitely something that I could use for my own little girl or make as a gift for a new mom of a little girl.
(2) I love bags, especially ones I make on my own that don’t make me look like a grandma. This a bag that could easily be one of my “What’s in My Bag” stories for smaller projects or using for a quick trip to the grocery store. (I have three kids so that happens A LOT!)
(3) I’ve made this pattern for the granny dog sweater with worsted weight yarn before. The pattern works up very easily and can be made for different sized dogs. I personally make dog sweaters and donate them to the local dog shelter.
(5) Based off the extremely successful movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
this cowl is a trendy thing that I think would be envied by many. It uses four (4) balls of the Thick & Quick yarn, so if I wanted to make it I’d had to purchase the other skeins of the same color.
(6) One skein of this yarn could be used to make this warm-looking cowl and the Lion Brand Website has the pattern shown completed in different colors.
(7) These beanie pattern could be used for a quick gift, or saved up for a Christmas gift for those people you may have get something for at the last minute!
(8) Something I think this skeins were made for was this kid-friendly blanket. This yarn is extremely soft, so I could imagine giving the blanket to a one-year old or a new mom who loves color.
(9) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE all things pumpkin. These adorable little gourds are perfect for the colors I got!
(10) Last but not least, what crocheting list would be complete without a afghan pattern? Obviously in my case, I would have to purchase a significant number of skeins to finish this pattern off, but the colors I got in my stash lend themselves well to use for this throw.
I hope this list helps you! I’m glad I’ve got the links in one place now so I can reference it. Keep crocheting friends!
