Do you have some of those wonderful Caron Cotton Cakes waiting for some crochet inspiration? Look no further than this list of free crochet patterns featuring these fabulous cakes!
Caron Cotton Cakes are a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. These self-striping cakes are a dream to work with and have such wonderful stitch definition.
The colors range from more brightly colorful or softer more pastel hues, these cakes make wonderful beach bags, coverups and fashion items!
This lovely Caron Cotton Cakes Crochet Basket by Maria of Maria’s Blue Crayon is made in the Beach Glass colorway (my personal favorite!) and is super easy made with just two stitches and two strands held together to help this basket keep its shape. Would look great filled with towels in the bathroom or as part of a gift basket at a shower!
I believe that these cakes are absolutely made for bags and this Trinity Crochet Bag by Nicki of Nicki’s Homemade Crafts in Blushing Melon is a great example. This bag is made with just two cakes and with the Trinity stitch it has nice texture and a lovely appearance!
