I lost count how many times I walked past this yarn, while walking towards the brands I normally use. I liked the many colors, but I couldn’t imagine what a blanket would look like someone else’s color choices.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized I had to change my way of thinking, and I bought Yarnspirations Caron Chunky Cakes yarn. After all I have worked a few of its cousin brand ex: Red Heart, Caron Simply Soft,and so on….
Then again a friend had asked if I could make a blanket for her granddaughter and I told her I would, “if she got the yarn,” and brought me the very yarn I had been walking past for years.

Okay, since that blanket turned out well. I decided to try it again for myself. It took me a few tries, but I finally found the right pattern.
How to Crochet a baby blanket using Caron Big Cakes yarn! This blanket uses 2 balls of the Caron Big Cakes yarn and a 5mm hook. In this video I show you how to make the blanket itself (a one row repeat and a pretty shell pattern – what’s not to love?!) as well as how to straighten the final edge before adding the border. All 3 steps are shown in this video 😀 Keep scrolling for the written pattern and the all important time stamps! 👇
I have been working on this for about two weeks, because of a missed count. I lost count of the first row and it was downhill from there and I had to take out two rows a few times before I got it right.
I am making a sad face, because I just realized I do not have enough yarn to continue for the size I wanted. I already used two full rolls and a half of another and only have one roll left.
This particular yarn cost $10.00 a roll. I was thinking about just continuing to work on it and putting it up until I can get some extra money? Then I realized, I am NEVER being this yarn again, (unless it’s a paying requested item) and I am going to start frogging (taking out) this project asap and get this project over with.
My next project will be looked at with the amount of yarn I have and not at what I want to make out of that yarn. This will be my last time frogging a project…..
