I have also created a pattern using ONE BALL of Caron Cakes yarn! With just one cake, you can make an adorable pair of button baby booties and a matching lovey blanket! Pulling from the center of the skein, I was able to create the booties with the first two colors. The soles of the booties are made with the first color (you will crochet 4 soles and sew two together on each shoe for sturdy heal). And the second color in the center of the cake is used for the main bootie structure. The rest of the skein is crocheted in rows and with a starting chain of 76, I was able to have fairly even color change rows that resulted in thick stripes! Of course you could use a second cake in the same color variegation to add to the blanket! That all being said, I am told that the yarn in each Caron Cake is cut at different places, so you can’t guarantee that each color in the skein is the same length – but the main bulk of the yarn should be pretty similar ball to ball but the inside and outside colors will vary.
– 1 ball of Caron Cakes yarn (I used Cake Pop color)
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Two 1 inch buttons
Starting with center color (in my case it was gray)
Chain 10, SC in 2nd chain from hook, SC in next 7, make 5 SC in the last chain
Now working on opposite side, SC 9, join, ch 1
Round 2: HDC, 2 HDC, HDC in next 6, 2 HDC in next 2, HDC in next 2, 2 HDC in next 2, HDC in next 6, 2 HDC, HDC in last, join, ch 1.
Round 3: SC 10, 2 SC in next 2, 2 HDC in next 4, 2 SC in next 2, SC in next 10, join, fasten off.
Holding two of the soles together and starting in the back joins. You are going to insert your hook in the back loop of the bottom sole and both loops of the top sole. So you will be working in 3 loops.
