I made this blanket using two strands at the same time of Caron Big Cakes in Summer Berry Tart. I love the variegated look it creates PLUS the self striping. It really creates something magical!

I especially love the randomness of the finished blanket. Some stripes are a solid color, some appear more often than others, and different combinations create different colors. I tried not to be concerned with how the colors were matching up. I just grabbed 2 skeins, pulled from the center and started crocheting. I’m so glad I did it that way! Trust me, it was hard not to cut some colors out to get to where I wanted… but I let the yarn do the talking here πŸ˜‰

For the stitch I used the Lemon Peel Stitch. It’s a combination of sc and dc, working the dc stitches into the sc’s and the sc stitches into the dc’s. It creates this uneven, pretty texture that worked up perfectly with this yarn.

  1. This is brilliant and beautiful!! I would have never thought to do this with self color changing yarns. It makes for each project to turn out different. And this is so pretty!! Thank you for the pattern!!

  2. Thanks for the gorgeous pattern, I particularly like that I could access the FREE pdf by your email. Wish the link for pinning was working, as I pin everything I like whether I have the pdf or not. I do like most all of your Kepp patterns and you do a very good job with them. Keep it up, please….

  3. Love this. Just wanted to give you a heads up that I’m also having a hard time with your Pinterest plug-in, on mobile. I decided to just find you on Pinterest and re-pin it that way. I love the look of this colorway double-stranded and can’t wait to try it! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

  4. I know this, as Moss stitch, I did a baby blanket. I wish, I had a picture. It is perfect for baby, no holes, to catch, little fingers or toes. I must go by yarn and do the pattern your way. P.S. I used baby yarn, for my gift.

    1. Moss Stitch is a little different and usually requires chains in between stitches. Maybe you mean Seed Stitch which is another name for the Lemon Peel Stitch.

      1. Awesome! I was readin thru comments to see if anyone asked about stitches to increase size! Thanks! This is very beautiful!

  5. I can’t wait to get started on this. I love working with Caron yarn. I’m almost through making a shawl out of it, but as a Crocheter you know we have to have at least 3 different patterns going at one time. This Kaleidoscopic Blanket is Absolutely Beautiful!!

  6. Did you keep going when you ended up with the same color? I have 4 big cakes, and mine are pretty all the same. I ended up starting inside on one and outside on the other, but 2 rows in, and I’m hitting both with yellow, but after the yellow I go back to 2 different colors.

    1. I am having the same problem. Mine doesn’t look nearly as random as the photos above. πŸ™
      I think with the next one I’m going to take one skein and pull out all of the first color and maybe half of the second color and attach it again near the end.

  7. Hello! 😊 Just wanted to thank you for your time, and for sharing your amazing talents. Always looking for something new and this one was a treasure find to be sure!😊
    Blessings, Brenda😊

  8. This blanket is a beautiful inspiration! I’m going to make one for our van sized camper bed 52 x 72. Wish me luck at the size increase! Thanks for the tip on keeping the number of stitches even!!!

  9. Hi there! After working with Caron cakes I noticed that they usually start with and turn into the same colors. How do you get the marled look if you are pulling from two different cakes? I know other people will pull from one cake using the outer and and pulling from the center for the other end so the colors are almost always different, though I’m sure you’re always going to have some solid patches πŸ™‚

    1. I purposely picked skeins that had different starting colors. I do have a couple solid rows, but not much πŸ™‚

      1. I tore the first attempt out and started again, pulling out the first two similar colors and starting about halfway through the 3rd. It came out much more random looking. And then I just added the stuff that I pulled out at the end. It’s so pretty! And such a simple pattern!

    1. Hi! I’m not quite sure what you mean. I pulled from the center from two skeins at the same time. Hope this helps! 😊

  10. I chained 86 but did not come near 48 or 45 inches. I came out with 23 inches. Is there an error in your directions? I’ve done 172 and I am at 43 inches.

  11. Hello, its past midnight and ive just come across this in Pinterest. After the day I’ve had at work I am so looking forward to hitting the wool shop later today to purchase the Caron cakes so that I can start crocheting this beautiful piece of work. Its been ages since I have picked up my crochet hook. Thank you for what seems like straightforward crochet.

  12. First – I love the look of this and think this is one I’m going to have to try!!!! Have you done this pattern with any of the other yarns similar to the Caron Big Cakes? Like Sweet Rolls or Caron Jumbo variegated or any other Caron Cakes? Just curious as I may or may not have some of those I mentioned. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you!! I haven’t tried it, but I saw someone made this blanket using Lion Brand Mandala Cakes and it turned out gorgeous! πŸ™‚

      1. Curious of the person who made this blanket with the Lion Brand mandala Cakes. How much of that yarn did they have use compared to the Caron Big Cakes? Beautiful pattern and blanket by the way. Thank you.

  13. Hi Breann,
    I’m so going to make this blanket! I will admit I feel stupid asking this, but what does the N/P stand for there by the hook size?
    Thanks,
    Karen

    1. That’s the letter associated with the hook size πŸ™‚ Depending on the brand, a 10.0 mm hook can be called an N or a P

  14. Hi there! I think this pattern looks great! My question is, how heavy does using the two strands make the blanket? I am afraid it might be too heavy for the warm winters here.
