The Crochet Blue Waves Anniversary Cakes Blanket is colour played. The Caron Anniversary Cakes have 5 colours and the colours are pulled out.

It’s called colour play when crocheters and knitters deconstruct a yarn ball so the colours are separated and manipulated in their own way. It’s not uncommon for yarn users to want to change the order of the colours.

This is strategically designed so that each stripe is a solid colour from the Caron Anniversary Cakes. So the light blue is used for the stripe and anything left over is wound to a separate ball and holding for the next time you need that colour. You then jump to the next colour you want and do a stripe. As the colours come back into play, you will use what is leftover from the yarn ball and then dig into the ball for the same colour to continue.

Of course, you can substitute your yarn and hook for this pattern. You could also let the colours just come out in the ball and left the afghan just do its thing without colour play. It won’t be as neatly striped but you may be okay with that as well. It’s your creativity and you are the artist.

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.
