I found this super fun yarn at Michael’s the other day. It’s Caron® Cakes™, a multi-purpose variegated yarn that comes in 18 shades each of which contains 5 beautiful colors. I picked up two shades: Cherry Chip and Lilac Frosting. My grand daughter wants a hat and scarf made with the Cherry Chip yarn. I went for the grit stitch scarf. The Crochet Lilac Frosting Scarf (free crochet pattern) is slightly textured and is great for cool weather. The pattern stitch–the grit stitch–creates a dense yet light weight fabric with a slight diagonal pattern. It’s perfect for the mild winters in Central Florida.
