So I jumped on the band wagon a little late in the game but there's more colors that seem to keep coming out for the Caron Cakes and Bernat Pop skeins. And I have fallen in love!
It was new for me to work with yarn that changes color when I'm used to delegating the color changes of my blankets. I must say it was also refreshing to be able to work with a skein continuously without having to stop, snip, change color and then weave in so many ends!
I searched and searched for a pattern I felt would do the cake yarn justice. And I found it at the Crochet Crowd! The Modern Granny Afghan is gorgeous and so simple to make! They used one color cake skein while I used two different ones. They also used Caron Cakes.
My blanket used Bernat Pop in Foggy Notion and Hot Chocolate.
While I usually make my blankets and give them away, I'm keeping this one for myself! A cozy lap blanket for when I'm sitting on the couch watching a movie!
