caron® chunky cakes™ crochet blanket cardigan

Wear this gorgeously comfortable cardigan and you’ll feel like you’re draped in a cloud of softness. Is it maybe a little bit of a shrug, too? We think that just makes it cozier. Either way, we love the turquoise accents shown here in Mystic Chip. Of course, since this is Caron® Chunky Cakes™ yarn, you’ll have plenty of brilliant color combinations to choose from when you make your own.
