One grand prize winner will win 500 Caron Cakes and a virtual meet-and-greet with one of four yarn influencers, Marly Bird, Tamara Kelly from Moogly, Mikey from Crochet Crowd, and Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me! In addition, four finalists will each receive 50 Caron Cakes. That is a lot of free yarn; you don’t want to miss your chance to be entered in the contest!
ADD SOME “ICING” TO YOUR CARON CAKE YARN
Use a Caron Cakes Pattern and make it your own. You can add pom-poms, tassels, or beads to change the pattern up and make it unique for you. If you need some inspiration, Michaels is hosting 8 virtual classes with the experts to teach you some unique ways to customize a Caron Cakes Yarn pattern to add some “icing” to your cake. Register here for the free classes. For your convenience, the patterns are all available in a free Recipe Book you can download here.
Think of how many projects you could make with the new Anniversary Cakes Yarn! I know I am thinking about a blanket and a couple pillows.
The Great Caron Cake Off Contest runs from 8/30/20 to 10/10/20. Entering the contest is easy! Just knit or crochet a unique project using Caron Cakes Yarn, take a picture, and submit your photo here by Saturday 10/10/2020.
