So, if you are looking for a special gift for that person, look no further!

This project is worked with Wool Ease® yarn by LION BRAND YARN! Made with 100% acrylic fiber that is easy to care for and machine washable and dryable, this sensationally soft yarn comes in heathered and tweedy shades inspired by the natural beauty of the American landscape – each color represents a national park or landmark.
