Lion Brand Yarn Studio displays “Under the Sea” theme
Jul '13
The new “Under the Sea” themed window display at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, retail store of Lion Brand Yarn Company, is an intricate and colorful yarn-crafted rendition of under-water sea life inspired by the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the New York shorelines last October.

For this display, the designers wanted to evoke feelings of summer, and glorify the ocean and its contributions to New York’s cityscape by creating fantasy representations of marine life. In the shop window, a knit and crocheted mermaid floats among sea kelp with seahorses and jellyfish, while a large crocheted Octopus guards a treasure chest amid the coral bed with starfish and crustaceans.

With the idea of celebrating New York waterfronts, the mermaid piece pays homage to the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, which is a public artistic celebration of seaside rituals and mythological sea life; it’s Coney Island’s traditional kick off to the summer. Coney Island also houses the New York Aquarium, another highly trafficked place in the summer, and is home to about 300 marine species.

“After Superstorm Sandy, we will never look at water the same, but fortunately we’re rebuilding the shorelines so that our beaches and aquarium will once again be a place for people to enjoy this summer. This window is a tribute to that hope,” said Patty Lyons, Lion Brand Yarn Studio Director. This aquatic themed window was knit and crocheted by fiber artists Juliet Hone, Nathan Vincent, and Samantha Smith.

The “Under the Sea” themed window will be on display at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio on 34 West 15th street through the end of August.
