BONUS! We've extended the dates for our Lion Brand Yarn Contest and opened up the playing field to include all toys! So enter your Instructable or Photo (still accepting anything you've documented since Jan. 24) for your chance to win $100 from Lion Brand Yarn!

We were so inspired by Lion Brand's re-imagining of Coney Island at World Maker Faire that we decided to challenge you to try your hand at yarn-chictecture.

We want you to reimagine the world with yarn. We're looking for buildings, vehicles, cityscapes, signs, nature, outer space – let your imagination run wild! Entries don’t just have to be crocheted or knitted; you can take a base of Styrofoam or cardboard and wrap, weave, needlefelt, or knot your creation.

Create your structure with yarn and be sure to detail your process to win one of five great gift certificates from Lion Brand Yarn.
