Cake slouchy beanie

Have you tried the new Caron Cake yarn? It is wonderfully soft and comes in delicious colors with luscious cake names! I decided to whip up a simple pattern to showcase the beautiful colors. This pattern will yield 3 hats, with a little left over. While some may not like the abrupt color transitions, it does not bother me.


Sorry for all the puns, but I really love this yarn! :) Please enjoy.

H Hook
Caron Cake Yarn or equivalent
Stitch markers
Yarn needle

  1. Hi, Please can you tell me the gauge for this pattern? I don't want to use an H hook and find out the hat is too small because I crochet tighter than you do. Thank you!
