Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

A very dear friend of mine taught me to crochet about two years and I have been "hooked" ever since! I was searching the Internet one day for pet crochet patterns for my dog and came across the "Hugs for Homeless Animals" organization ( This group makes Snuggles, small to large crocheted throws that are then donated to animal shelters all across the US for animals that have no homes and are in desperate need of love and warmth. I decided that this was a fantastic idea and have since made four Snuggles in my spare time and donated them to our local animal shelter. It is so great to be able to lift the spirits of homeless animals who have nothing else and the Snuggles are quick and easy to crochet too! Two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and crocheted to the appropriate size with a size N hook. I love making Snuggles and try to buy and get donated yarn whenever I can to make them with!!
