Lion Brand Pound of Love Review

Have you used this yarn before? Lion Brand Pound of Love is so amazing for several reasons. It’s relatively affordable, easy to use, amazing quality, versatile for just about any crochet project, and comes in crazy bulk! That means that one skein should cover almost any one (or even several) crochet project(s).

Maybe you’ve seen it around, but you’re not sure what to make out of it. The truth is, there are lots of possibilities with this yarn. You can use one skein to make a variety of smaller projects. OR, you can use 1 or 2 skeins to make a much larger project. You’ll find both kind of designs in this post.

As far as buying options for this yarn, it can be bought in store at Joann, or online on Amazon or Lion Brand. Suprisingly (at the time of writing) the price on Amazon vs. Lion Brand was exactly the same. So if you have prime shipping, I would go with that option! 😉

Is pound of love yarn good for blankets?

Yes, Pound of Love is a great choice for making blankets! In fact, you will find quite a few blanket patterns in this post. Pound of Love comes in several perfect baby colors if you are looking to make baby blankets. Really though, it has a wide selection of pastels and darker hues, so there’s something for everyone!

In addition, the weight of this yarn makes it great for blankets. Because the ball is so big (1 pound!) If you want to make a good sized blanket, you will need more than one skein. But you probably won’t need 10+ skeins like you would with other yarn!

Lion Brand Pound of Love Crochet Patterns

Without further ado, let’s jump right into all the awesome pound of love patterns!

1. Pound of Love Dream Weaver Bag

First up, check out the Dream Weaver Bag! Isn’t this one stunning? I love all of its beautiful textures! Since the stitches used work up a pretty thick fabric, the end result comes out super sturdy, so there’s not need to line it! This bag would make the perfect gift for any loved ones.

It’s worked in a continuous round with simple sections of colorwork. So even a beginner-intermediate crocheter could tackle this one!

7. Lacy Windows Shawl

8. Caprock Canyon Lapghan

Next, check out the Caprock Canyon Blanket. This blanket has a gorgeous and cozy texture thanks to the Crunch stitch. This lapghan is on the smaller side, so it works up quickly and is perfect for when you just need something small to snuggle up in. Since the fringe is completely optional, without it this would make the perfect lap blanket for those in wheelchairs or nursing homes!

Designer: Stitching Together

12. Flora and Fauna Clutch

Here’s a unique one: the Flora and Fauna Clutch! This clutch is so darling, I just love the puffy flowers. This design is truly unique since it’s not crocheted in one piece. Instead, lots of little flowers are pieced together like a puzzle and then sewn to form the body of the clutch, and then a simple, half double crochet flap is added afterward and embellished with more flowers. This one definitely takes some patience, but the end result is so worth it!
