The 7 Wonders of the Yarn World – revealed!

UPDATED 7 Wonders Collage

Lion Brand Yarn Company Showcases “The 7 Wonders of the Yarn World” at CHA Winter Tradeshow

We’re at the Craft Hobby Association (CHA) Winter 2014 tradeshow in Anaheim, CA this weekend and our big secret is now out! Keep watching here as we reveal “7 Wonders of the Yarn World” — a fiber art installation that includes large-scale yarn sculptures representing the 7 wonders of the world.

The 7 Wonders of The World sculptures were designed by fiber artist Nathan Vincent. Each sculpture represents a different technique found in knit or crochet. The installations that represent the “7 Wonders of the Yarn World” theme stand about 5 feet high or taller, and include marvels such as the Great Wall of China crocheted with granny squares, an embellished knit Taj Mahal, a lace crocheted Leaning Tower of Pisa, a crocheted Lion Sphinx, and more.

Keep watching here as more photos get added to our gallery.

  • So glad to become acquainted with Nathan Vincent and on such a grand scale! I am truly awestruck!!

  • […] Last year, we asked Nathan Vincent to design several larger-than-life sculptures that could be associated with seven yarn techniques or, as we like to call them, “yarn wonders.” Revealed at the Craft and Hobby Association show earlier this year, these sculptures were presented as Lion Brand’s 7 Wonders of the Yarn World. Each yarn wonder was represented in our fashion show, displaying the variety of ways you can use and wear each one. We started with textures (Stonehenge) and stripes and chevrons (Mayan Ruins).
