What To Do With Caron Latte Cakes

New to Michaels Stores is Caron Latte Cakes. A self-striping yarn similar to the original Caron Cakes but with an added touch. There is an extremely soft eyelash type of yarn added to the fibres to give the hues a softness in visual appearance. Very much like the foam on top of a Latte.

I would have assumed the stitches are hard to see and find but they are not. The project will have a bit of weight and drape to it which is really appealing.

For 2019

  • Michaels is bringing in 18 colours which were more than in 2018. They have decided to keep stocking this item after the promotion. 10 colours will be staying in the store. Which colours are unknown to me at this time. 
  • A slew of new patterns is expected to be released on Michaels.com. 

There are some dedicated patterns on Michaels.com but you can use pretty much most other Caron Cakes projects to play with this type of yarn. I hope you love it as much as I do.

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.

    I bought the blackberry Caron latte, but it’s totally different from the pattern picture.
    On the video that you did , that’s what the blackberry yarn looks like, but I like the one on the pattern. Why are they so different?
