We here at Lion Brand love color! We love color so much, in fact, that we chose not one but twelve colors of the year. So it’s no surprise that National Crayon Day is one of our favorite niche holidays. If you’re a color-lover too, check out some of our celebrations of color below, and plan some coloring time to celebrate March 31.
One of our favorite ways to celebrate color here at Lion Brand is to feature Colors of the Year. We posted our Colors of the Year blog back in January, and have been highlighting a color each month to bring vibrancy to your crafting. You’d never choose just one crayon to get the job done… So how could we choose just one color for the whole year?
We’re dedicated to leading the industry in color direction. While trends are a powerful way to tap into which color is really ‘singing’ right now, we believe the whole choir of colors is necessary to bring our world to life. It’s one of the best parts of opening a box of crayons – all the possibilities!
If you’re looking for a crafty project to celebrate National Crayon Day, look no further! We have a pattern for a cute Crayon Caddy (Knit) to help you break out of the box. Grab a few skeins of Vanna’s Choice, or any 4 Medium Weight yarn you have on hand, and get stitching.
We went primary colors for our pictured caddy, but you could get creative! And if you extended the pattern for longer pockets, it might be a perfectly adorable needle case. Whatever your crafting experience, this is a fun project to tackle and gift to the little coloring wizard in your life.
Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be taking some time to color tomorrow in celebration of National Crayon Day. We’d love to know if you’re working in a color you just can’t get enough of! What’s your favorite hue you’ve ever crafted with?
