I love to knit and crochet, but I've never gotten past squares and rectangles. The yarn projects I'm sharing in the gallery above are really easy, and most require no needle-crafting at all! I also love to make jewelry using nontraditional supplies, such as yarn. These yarn necklaces are easy and quick and make great gifts. Our metallic Glitter Eyelash yarn will be showing up in my next batch of necklaces. It's not too early to start holiday gift-making!

The Martha Stewart Crafts yarn line, created with Lion Brand Yarn Company, is now available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores, Michaels, AC Moore, and other retailers. All of our patterns are available online here.

To win, please leave a comment below before 6 P.M. on Friday, October 21. Click here to view the full terms and conditions.

  • I've loved crocheting, using yarn to make crafts when my children were young. Even used it to tie up my plants when in a pinch. Made my husband a king size afghan that he treatures. Making jewelry to actually wear outside of the home never occurred to me. After looking at items created, I've got to try. The new yarn will add sparkle, pizazz, or suttle class. Definitely will be interesting. I have 3 grown daughters and 2 granddaughters to impress. One of these patterns just might due it. Thanks for sharing
