Caron Anniversary Cakes Yarn

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.

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.

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

    1. Mikey says:

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

  2. Ann Kalister says:

    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 says:

    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 ?

    1. KathyDG says:

      I have been crocheting for a very long time but wanted a simple, warm afghan pattern for this yarn. I tried a few different stitches and patterns and settled on this.

  4. S V O says:

    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

    1. Marina King says:

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

  5. Kathy says:

    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. Marina King says:

      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. Kathy says:

        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 says:

    What is the price please?

    1. Mikey says:

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

  7. Kim Miller says:

    Can anyone tell me the price?

  8. Kim says:

    Just wondering the price?

    1. Mikey says:

      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 says:

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

    1. Marina King says:

      as far as I know, they are exclusive to Michael’s

  10. Carol says:

    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. Marina King says:

      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.

  11. Barbara says:

    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 says:

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

    1. Mikey says:

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

  13. Carolyn says:

    How can I order this yarn

    1. Marina King says:

      It’s available at Michael’s stores
