I wanted to try the Caron Latte Cakes for the longest time but It never made the cut to get into my Micheals cart. During my Boxing Day shopping this year I found a ball hiding in the clearance section. Even though the colours were not usually what I’m drawn too, It’s was on sale and my curiosity took over! Let me tell you…ahhh man! This stuff has such a unique feeling and textue, when it’s worked up it’s even softer than in the cake. It totally sounds cliché but there are honestly no words to describe the texture!
I had no idea what I wanted to do with this gorgeous yarn (I think that’s why it took so long to try it!), so I just played with it for quite a while. I quickly discovered the drape is just as beautiful as the texture. The combination of it all really does remind me of a Latte with extra foam, they could not have named it any better!
Trying out different stitch combinations and loving each one more than the next! I was also pleasantly surprised how easy it is to work with. I was expecting the stitches to blend into the texture more like eyelash yarn but I didn’t find that much at all. The only problem I have now is my Micheals location doesn’t have anymore! Here’s to hoping they bring out another collection in the spring, because seriously…. take my money now!

Notes: Ch 3 at the start of rows counts as a st, it is very easy to miss, a st marker is highly recommended. Gauge measurement is not overly important for this project.
I used as much of the yarn cake as possible, the finished scarf is approximately 80” long before joining the ends. It is the perfect length to wrap twice to wear as a fashion scarf or wrap it three times for a warm scarf under your winter jacket. You could also customize the length so its just a single loop fashion scarf and it would still look fantastic!!
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch and ea ch sp to the end,
Row 2: ch 3, turn, (skp st, tr, tr in skp st) rep 14 times, dc in last st.

To finish off whipstitch to two ends together, adding a twist if you like, FO, weave in ends.
I hope you enjoyed my Light as a latte scarf, I know I love it and I have a skein if shawl in a ball that’s been sitting around for awhile I think this might be just the pattern to use it for!
