Dorothy, we ain’t in Kansas anymore! In celebration of 5 years, 5 YEARS ALREADY, is the newest edition of the Caron Anniversary Cakes. It’s HUGE! 

This is considered a #6 Super Bulky Weight. It’s 1000 grams or 35.3 ounces of fibre fantasy dreams come true!

I asked the question about the length of the self-striping. It’s close to the same length as the original for each colour. Because the ball is huge, it gives the illusion it changes colours faster. It’s not, it’s just the circumference of the ball!

These gigantic size balls are available exclusively at Michaels Canada and USA. These are rolling out to the shelves in select Michaels locations. You can check out their website, Michaels, for availability. You may have been seeing empty store shelves and they are waiting for the birth of these huge cakes coming your way! These are Motto Motto Size. We like it big, we like it chunky! 

It’s officially launching in a week or so but stores are receiving their stock soon and you will see them magically appearing on the shelves. It’s now listed as an item on and So I figured I would tell you more about it. These are way too big for a stocking stuffer!

Experience a tremendous stitch sampler afghan called the Crochet Sampler Blues Afghan. Talk about a stitch tease project. There are 8 different stitch combinations used in this masterpiece.

Diagrams are available for each of the section. I would caution you on section 6 as that stitch tends to be tight in tension. I would increase the hook to a 10 mm / N Hook for that particular section. That’s experience giving you that advice.

  1. I just finished the Hugs and Kisses blanket for my new Grandson. I used Caron Cotton cakes in Infinite Blue and White and it turned out great. I even added a “kisses” border in the white . My question is that I went to hand wash and the colors are starting to bleed. I quickly started to rinse, rinse, rinse but not sure what to do to set the colors. Help!
    Thank you.

  2. I am a beginner crocheter and i’m looking to learn a new, interesting stitch that will show off the color changes in the Anniversary cake. ( I bought Blueberry Birthday). Ive mastered DC, SC and HDC. Can you recommend something new ?

  3. Only draw back is that the cake is not one continuous strand. My ball had 4 joining knots. 3 were at the colour change from a dark to light colour. The other was random join, so stripes were not consistent, giving me uneven colour repeat. Problem also seen in smaller cakes, but more in bigger cakes

  4. Has anyone gotten through one of these monsters yet? I bought 2 at Michael’s today and plan to make a very simple moss stitch afghan, letting the colors do their thing. I’m wondering if I should take the time to wind it into a ball? I get so annoyed when I pull from the middle while working and it gets knotted up. Thanks!

    1. I haven’t finished a full one yet, but I find when I pull for the middle I fight with fewer knots than I start from the outside. my winder won’t wind the whole ball it’s too big lol

      1. Thanks so much! Winding the whole thing into a ball would take daaaaaays and would be no fun at all. I keep telling myself I must finish my current projects before starting this new one. I’m not optimistic that it will work out that way. LOL!

    1. Just check or It depends if you are here in Canada or a resident of the USA. That’s the best place to look.

  5. I practically hyper-ventilated when I saw this at my local Michaels. Scooped up 5 of these huge balls. AND they were 25% off!

    1. I was pretty excited to get a ball myself, no clue what I want to do with it yet haha, I’m hoping to grab a few more colours before they are gone.

  6. I bought 3 at a local Michael’s. Blueberry bash. Planning on doing a blanket/bedspread for Christmas. Any pattern suggestions?

  7. Can I make one Afghan with one cake? A lap blanket at least? Buying tomorrow!!!

  8. What an exciting thing! I adore Caron yarns THIS is a dream! Thank you, Mikey, for keeping us posted! Much love…

  9. You are the best Michael! I have learned so much from you, even patience! Lol
    Stay safe, much love,
