Update: Michaels Stores is being stocked with Caron Anniversary Cakes for fall 2021. You will find some refreshed colours.

Dorothy, we ain’t in Kansas anymore! In celebration of now 6 years, 6 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!

Crochet Anniversary Cakes Cardigan Pattern

Super cozy is the Anniversary Cakes Cardigan. With many colours to choose from and the way you can mix the colours together would leave it to your imagination to how your personal cardigan would look.

For the Extra Small to 4 XL size you will need 2 balls. For the 5 XL, you will need 3 balls.

There’s nothing stopping you from grabbing different colours of the Caron Anniversary Cakes to really give it flare.

Crochet Poncho with Anniversary Cakes Pattern

The Crochet Anniversary Cakes Poncho is ultra-soft and has a similar concept of ponchos that are made by Yarnspirations.

This is the Caron Anniversary Cakes Poncho. From Extra Small to 5 XL, all pattern sizes are using 2 giant big balls of Caron Anniversary Cakes.

This poncho is even better with the turtle neck for the fall warmth feeling as the temperatures start to dip.

The Crochet Cozy Anniversary Cakes Shawl pattern is using the Solomon’s Knot feature.

I’ve done the Solomon’s knot already but not in a triangle shawl format.

Solomon’s Knot in Wrap Rectangle Format

This is using Bernat Blanket with the Crochet Love Knot Blanket. Love knots are the alternative name of Solomon’s Knot. Though I don’t have a triangle version of Solomon’s knot in a triangle format, I figured adding this may be of interest.

Crochet Sampler Blues Afghan

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 sections. 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.

The link will take you to our landing page as our videos for this Stitch Along is gathered together in one spot.

    Are these limited edition? How long will they be at Michaels

    • Mikey

      Just for this season. It’s a year anniversary cake.

  2. Ann Kalister

    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.

  3. Lori

    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 ?

  4. S V O

    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

    • that’s not uncommon, I usually just retie with the magic knot and carry on.

  5. Kathy

    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!

    • 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

      • Kathy

        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!

  6. Kim Miller

    What is the price please?

    • Mikey

      Just check or It varies depending on location country. 🙂 They could be on sale as well.

  7. Kim Miller

    Can anyone tell me the price?

  8. Kim

    Just wondering the price?

    • Mikey

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

  9. Lenore

    Love them but I am in Australia where can I buy some.

  10. Carol

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

    • 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.

    • L aura Hoosier

      You were lucky to get some. Looks like some colors might not be coming to some areas? I can’t find Chocolate Fountain anywhere within more then 200 miles of where I live in KY. I even had a friend in Cinn, OH look and nothing within 200 miles of her either. I had to have a friend in Mass. buy me 2 skeins and the 2 my hubby bought off amazon the seller cancelled the sale with some lame excuse now I don’t have enough to make a blanket to replace the one the puppy ate that was made 30 years ago and can’t find any more around me. Going to keep looking but feels a bit hopeless unless I want to be price gouged on Ebay or Etsy.

  11. Barbara

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

  12. Michelle Blanchard Ardillo

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

    • Mikey

      Lapghan for sure. 2 balls will take you about 60″ x 50″.

  13. Carolyn

    How can I order this yarn

  14. Jen Pollard

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