Lion Brand’s Unique Yarn certainly lives up to its name. Much like other bulky weight yarns by Lion Brand, this particular yarn is a pleasure to work with and works up quickly. However, the beautiful colors of this yarn is what sets it apart from the others, making it truly “unique” and one-of-a-kind.
Our friend and crochet blogger Lorene Eppolite of Cre8tion Crochet was kind enough to review Lion Brand Unique yarn for us, as well as design two patterns using this beautiful new yarn. According to Lorene, Unique Yarn by Lion Brand truly is “unique.” In fact, she calls it “one of the most fun yarns” she has ever worked with. This soft, two-stranded yarn changes color as you work with it, which creates an “amazing finished look,” according to Lorene. “It was exciting to see what color combination would be coming next,” she says.
Although Lion Brand categorizes it as a craft or rug yarn, Lorene chose to crochet two stunning garments using this yarn. Despite the bulky weight, Unique yarn has incredible drape, which makes it perfect for sweaters, shawls, and other wearables, as well as accessories and home décor.
