    My latest finished project Toddler Vest for a Girl

    The Pattern is from The Lavender Chair and is called Ring Around the Rosie using Caron Cakes.
    I used almost the same colors as her but I think I used the Caron cakes incorrectly. I unraveled the huge cake and cut the yarn in order of how I wanted it to look. It took time to do it that way and I was pleased with the results but I would not do that again I would use the yarn how it comes off the roll.

    I like her patterns and she shares them for free.

    The size I made is for a 3 year old my little Grand daughter. The back has a nice design in a circle and when I had enough yarn left I decided to make a hat to go with the vest. I used a smaller version of the back circle design then just finished the hat with HDC and some shells to cover her ears.

    Hi Spoula,
    Nice job. You said you cut the yarn in how you wanted it to look. That's something to be able to do that!

    That is the cutest little set. About cutting the yarn - you would have to do that to get a variety of colours when working a small project like that. Otherwise, the whole thing would be the same colour (as far as I can tell). Me, I'd never go to that trouble; I'd just buy 3 or 4 small balls.

    That granddaughter of yours must have a whole closetful of your creations by now.

    That's cute and quite creative on the hat. I am with you on just letting it come out of the skein how it may!

    Hi MeToo, Those Caron Big Cakes yarn have a lot of yarn on those rolls. I think it was either 5 or 6 different shades of lavender from the lightest to the darkest. I started from the bottom and pulled out the lightest first. After I cut up all the yarn I then rolled each color up on toilet paper rolls in a crisscrossed design and lined them up in front of me on the table in the order of the color I wanted next.

    The pattern was very easy to do it only took a couple of hours to do the longest part was the cutting and rolling of the yarn. Ha Ha

    Also it was cheaper to buy 1 Caron cake then 6 rolls of other yarn.

    I have made a lot of things for my granddaughter and have enjoyed doing it. It keeps me busy.
