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!
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!
I love traveling to see different national parks and monuments all over the country. While we are staying near D.C. and New York on this trip, I would love to visit other parks like ones near Chicago.
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!
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.
Now to the pattern!

2. Start in the bottom right corner of the color chart, where there are two number 1’s. Then work diagonally as you normally would in C2C, changing colors as indicated.Here’s the color chart; enjoy!
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!
