Caron Cotton Cakes
When I laid eyes on this gorgeous ball of Caron Cotton Cakes I was determined to change my opinion of colour change yarn. I’ve tried colour change yarn before, but I’ve always felt dissatisfied with how it evolved in my projects. The colour changes never seemed to fall where I wanted and cutting the yarn to make the project more aesthetic pleasing defeated the purpose for me. I mean, a huge advantage of colour change yarn is that there are less ends. Right?
So I began experimenting with different designs to find one that would work with the colour change yarn to create an end project that didn’t look like colour change yarn. After a few attempts I decided to try my Daisy Wheel Roundie Pattern, and hoorah, I loved the result.
After completing one side in Blushing Melon, I wanted to make sure that the pattern would work with other colours too. One of my New Years resolutions is to broaden the range of colours that I use, so I went through my stash and pulled out a ball of Seaglass Caron Cotton cake.
Yes! Despite not being a huge lover of blue, I was really pleased with how this turned out. The colour changes are gradual enough to look like i’ve cut and changed colours each round, but I can promise you i haven’t. The Daisy Wheel Pattern also looks beautiful in one solid colour – pictured here in Patons Cotton Blend Wild Rose. You will need 4 balls of Patons to complete the cushion.
Both the Caron Cotton Cakes and the Daisy Wheel Roundie Pattern are in RedAgape Shop. You will need two balls to finish the entire cushion – with a 4.5mm hook. I’d love to see how yours turn out, so tag #daisywheelcake if you share a picture on Instagram. I’d love to see.
