Create a gorgeous crochet baby blanket using Caron Cakes yarn! The stitchwork looks like tiles and the color-changing yarn creates a beautiful gradient. If you've never worked with yarn cakes before, you're in for a treat! The advantage of a yarn cake is that the color changes very gradually---much more gradually than a regular variegated skein of yarn. You also don't need as many cakes to complete a project! This means less weaving in ends. This beautiful pattern is a must-make design for your next baby shower. The new mommy will love it so much!
