I love the color of this Rice pudding Caron Chunky Cakes Yarn. It is a bulky gauge 6 yarn so the blanket will work up fast.

The self striping yarn is great because you get lots colors without having to change colors.

There are lots of different colors of Caron Cakes yarn, perfect for a little boy or girl. Most you can easily scale up for a throw too.

The yarn is a super bulky and soft with little bits of the colors mixed. The Rice Pudding colorway has a lovely ombre effect.
