Braille and Large Type knitting patterns from Lion Brand

Did you know that many companies now print knitting patterns in a large type format for people who are visually impaired, and in Braille, for those who are blind? It makes sense, especially as many knitters will know, your sight is not necessarily the main sense used when knitting, which is what makes it a great social craft.

Lion Brand have been producing their patterns in large print or Braille since the beginning of 2006. They have also added colour descriptions to all their yarns, and added special features to their online patterns and directories to make them easier to navigate with a screen reader.
