Caron Skinny Cakes Yarn

Yarnspirations introduces another extension of yarn from the amazing popular Caron Cakes. Introducing Caron Skinny Cakes yarn. Other than being a Light Weight #3 Yarn, this yarn is the first Caron Cakes extension to offer more colours than the standard 5 colours that we have been enjoying.

Caron Skinny Cakes goes beyond offering 7 – 9 colours in just one ball. That’s a lot of colour mixing in just one ball. For experts, it makes it more interesting and other options for crocheters and knitters to enjoy.

Original Caron Cakes is approximately 383 yds, Caron Skinny Cakes is more than double the yardage in just one ball. This yarn is 250 g / 8.8 oz will go a long way for a project.

The entire Caron Cakes branding for Yarnspirations is exclusively available at Michaels Stores. Caron Skinny Cakes are limited in availability as it’s not a yarn that’s available chain-wide. Yes, it’s available in select Canadian and USA stores, however, it’s not a yarn that will be in every Michaels Store. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

The good news for USA crocheters and knitters, this yarn is available through online ordering and shipping. So if a local Michaels isn’t carrying this yarn and you live in the main continent of the USA, you have options to still get this yarn by ordering online.

Michaels Canada is expected to do online shipping starting in the fall of 2019. I’m unsure if this product will be added to the website for ordering but it’s very possible.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

  1. We have skinny cakes in spotlight stores austral8a

      I was pretty excited to see them here, I picked up a ball, no idea what I want to do with it yet but it was so pretty. I saw there are some new colours out here now that we didn’t have when I first bought mine.

  2. Janice says:

    “Ideas of featuring #3” overlaps the “sort by” button. Also, the comments are not full across page but just a few letters along right side of page. I hope this helps.

  3. Sally Martin says:

    I’m on a Mac, saved scrolled over projects, clicked on pictures, no problems. Using Safari

  4. David Coleman says:

    I have no problem with Chrome.

  5. Jenna Johnson says:

    The lettering is so large in the patterns it bleeds over making it hard to read.

    1. Mikey says:

      What lettering? I don’t understand.

      1. Patti Smith says:

        On a computer (not on a phone), when you mouse over the links to projects, a second graphic pops up and automatically scrolls so you see the bottom of a list of tags. You can’t see the link to the actual project and can only click on the tags.

      2. Mikey says:

        Morning Patti, I am unable to duplicate that event to see that happen on my computer. Which browser are you using. We use Chrome here. Are you using PC or MAC?

      3. Lizi says:

        Im having this same issue now. In chrome and edge. Cant see it properly at all

      4. Mikey says:

        What lettering? I am unable to duplicate this error. I am using Google Chrome here as well.

      5. Joy says:

        I am using firefox on a desktop computer, and I am getting the same issue. when you try to select one of the pattern pictures, a tag list scrolls to the bottom of the list and it sits right over top of the picture. This makes it difficult to actually follow the picture to the pattern link, because all that you can select are the tags from the bottom of the list.

      6. Mikey says:

        OOOH I know what you are speaking of. That’s a programming thing with the template. If I eliminate the categories out, it reduces the searching. Let me see if I can axe out those searching criteria so the pictures are clearer. This will eliminate out search options for the crocheters but you are probably right. On the Mobile, it’s a real pain in the butt.

      7. Mikey says:

        I was able to adjust the coding to axe out the categories from the photos. This should take effect on your end in the next 2 hours as the global servers are being updated now.
