I'm in the process of making a cardigan and so far no problems with knots or breakage. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Mavis morning sickness from Wonderful to knit with!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wlkns from Nice yarn, breaks and tangles easily though This yarn is very soft, and is very easy to work with, but if you try to unravel your work, it tends to tangle around the fibers, and get stuck, and even break. Lost a bit of yarn from it breaking and the end getting lost in the work. Besides that, I like it. Rated 5 out of 5 by SissyKap from Easy to work with and very soft but always sold ou Can never get enough for a large project.
All the colors are not available. Rated 5 out of 5 by Aloka from Made beautiful scarfs! I bought one Caron latte cake to make a scarf and it turned out beautiful. Since then I have purchased more wool to make more and all of them turned out great, a nice wool to work with and the scarfs are so soft. With self isolation I needed some projects and am well ahead to share some nice gifts next Christmas. Rated 1 out of 5 by Rambonboo from Never in stock I love the Caron Latte Cakes yarn but you never have it in stock and no one else carries it.
What can be done to resolve this issue? I crocheted a sweater with this and color controlled it, love the yarn, but all my skeins had knots in them reason why I only gave it 4 starswhich I had to undo and make a Russian join with them.Learn More.

If you've been knitting for a couple of years now, you probably remember when Caron Cakes yarn took the world by storm. A Michaels exclusive, this yarn promised self-striping projects in unique color schemes with delicious names, like "Berries and Cream" or "Pistachio Fudge. What's the most elegant way to use this kind of yarn?
The truth is, obviously, that there are no hard-and-fast rules in the world of knitting and you can use your beautiful yarn in any way you want to make any thing you want!
That said, if you're a little stuck and in need of some inspiration, or you much prefer to knit a pattern by-the-books because you like to know exactly how it will turn out in the end, never fear.
We have eight lovely patterns that use one or more typical skeins of your favorite worsted weight Caron Cakes yarn below that you are bound to love. This knitting pattern from GoddessCrochet is simply stunning and a great way to flaunt your favorite Caron Cake colorway. This shawl is so lovely because it is both textured and reversible; there's no wrong side and on wrong way to wear this beautiful shawl! Get the Pattern. Blankets using Caron Cakes yarn aren't just for crocheters!
That's right, this yarn translates into knit blankets just as beautifully, and some would even prefer this kind of look to the more lacy, open-weave of a granny square blanket. This project is a bit bigger, so you should only take it on if you have or don't mind buying six skeins of Caron Cakes yarn.
Have you ever wondered what makes a blanket a blanket or an afghan an afghan? We have the answers! If you'd like to go in a less standard direction, a cozy worsted-weight shawl for the winter is always an option. Since Caron Cakes is self-striping, you'll find yourself with thicker stripes near the collar of this triangle shawl, and thinner stripes where it widens out at the base. The best part is that this super-easy shawl takes just 1 skein of Caron Cakes yarn in the colorway Gelato but would look excellent in any of the other options.
Another easy way to use up a single skein of this yarn is with a knit hat! This hat is perfect for beginners, since it's knit-flat and there's no need yet to learn to knit in the round. This is another one of those versatile patterns for Caron Cakes yarn that would look lovely in any given colorway. An easy way to knit a striped top is with self-striping yarn! If you've got a few skeins namely 2 skeins of Caron Cotton Cakes of yarn in a color that you know would look adorable on your little one, this pattern is a quick, easy, and fun way to make him or her a new top for the warmer months.
Knit almost entirely in stockinette stitch with no difficult frills, you'll find this project just flies by. If you're looking for more patterns to knit for the little ones, you're in luck! If you loved the idea of knitting a shawl, but have more than one skein of Caron Cakes yarn to work with, the Winter Wildflower Knit Shawl Pattern is an excellent option. This bigger, cozier shawl uses two cakes of yarn rather than one, and, as a result, will be a longer project. However, since this shawl is more rectangular in design, you'll also find that the stripes are more even throughout, so if that is your preference, this is the shawl pattern for you.
There is no better beginner project than a garter stitch scarf. Perhaps you're a brand-new knitter who picked up a ball of Caron Cakes yarn at your trip to Michaels because you thought it looked cute and wanted to use it to learn to knit, but you can't really do anything more complicated than entry-level knitting. You absolutely can learn how to knit something beautiful on your new yarn, and we recommend starting with this stupidly-easy scarf pattern. On the other hand, maybe you've been around the block a few times and you're ready to try something a little more advanced and learn to knit in the round.
A great pattern to knit on circular needles with is a cowl, since you don't have to worry about the decreases of a hat or all of the different pieces of a sweater. This project will take a mere two cakes of yarn, and is a great way to additionally learn how to knit 1 below.Now, what to make? Lots of people have emailed me asking to update this post.

I started a cardigan with cookies and cream. I have the back knit, now im starting the right front panel. Hi Shelly! One way to solve this would be to cut the yarn so that you can start on the same color on both the back and the front basically skipping ahead a color or two. Or, you could embrace the mismatched colors and call it a design feature. Some great patterns in your treasury! I will have to check out that Cakes yarn — its looks like a lot of fun to knit or crochet with.
Would love to make lots of things if I could ever get my hands on the yarn! All 3 Tulsa, Ok stores sell out within hours before anyone knows they have them! Beverly, sit tight!
