This new issue is filled with colorful confections that are sure to have you heading for your craft store looking for the new cake yarns! Cake yarns get their name from the way they are packaged to look like a round cake, revealing the tantalizing color palette in each skein.
In addition to the new cakes yarns, self-striping yarns with long color repeats are currently trending too; all tempting us to pick up our crochet hooks!
Colorful Crochet is packed with over 40 must-make projects all crocheted with minimal color changes. The yarn does all the work!
Make a pretty wrap just in time for Fall. The Shades of Autumn Wrap is crocheted on the diagonal alternating rows of filet mesh and double crochet which shows off the variation of the yarn beautifully.
The Bandolier Vest makes a great transition piece when the weather starts turning cooler. Crocheted with just 2 cakes of yarn, the colors cascade along the fronts creating a pretty tonal effect.
The Kimono Cardi is crocheted in a self-striping yarn with a tweedy look. This topper is easy enough to attempt for your first garment and quick enough for an experienced stitcher to make in a snap! Cozy and warm too!
