Travel Pattern Series: Crochet in New York

Hey guys! I’m here at my first destination—NEW YORK! I can hardly believe it! But here I am, and I’m ready to launch my first pattern in the special travel series! In case you haven’t heard, I’m currently on vacation, going all around the East Coast to various places. I’m doing a special series of themed patterns while I’m gone, and this is the first one! To read my original post introducing this topic, click HERE.

The Statue of Liberty was…amazing! We went up to the crown, walking the stairs all the way. The spiral staircase was really fun. 🙂 My legs are definitely tired…but it was so worth it!

As you can see, this pattern is a wall hanging made from Corner to Corner Crochet. I can’t wait to put it on my wall as a memento when we get home!

The Yarn

Real quick, before we get to the pattern…lets talk about the yarn!I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for my sign. I absolutely love this yarn. It’s worsted weight, but softer than a lot of other standard worsted weight yarns out there. Get some for yourself HERE.

After you’ve finished all the crocheting, you can leave it as is, or frame it as I did. I used an 8″ by 8″ shadow box frame. All I had to do was stick it inside!

I hope you enjoyed this pattern; I had so much fun designing it! To view more of my free patterns, click here. And if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
