Caron Pantone Yarn Review and A Cowl Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Caron Pantone Yarn Review and
 A Cowl Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

See The Video on My Youtube Crochet Channel At This LINK

If you Search,
" What is 
This is
 the Definition
 That Comes up.

"Caron® x Pantone™ is a luxuriously soft yarn in a unique braid put up, with stunning color palettes specially selected by color experts at Caron® in collaboration with 
Pantone®. Get creative with color and use your 
5 separated links of yarn in endless combinations to make a
 pattern unique to you."

Here are my thoughts:

1. The Yarn is very soft and easy to work with.
 It slides nicely over my crochet hook and I enjoyed
 crocheting with it.

2. The colorways are bright and Vivid. 

Most of the color combination are to my liking. 
There are a few that I would not chose, but that
 is just my preference.

3. The Yarn is 5 different colors of yarn, 

and 5 separate links of yarn, 
So you will need to join the yarn links together.
This is not pleasing to me, but not a great big deal.

4. The yarn is not spun tightly. 

It is several strings of yarn held together,but not twisted,
 and can be a little splitty.

5. The Bundle has a total of 3.5 oz/ 127 yards

So not a lot to work with, so you will need a 
couple skeins for most projects.

6. The Yarn is 60% Acrylic, 20% Nylon, 20% Merino Wool

I like this combination, you get strength, softness and warmth.

7. I purchased the first Caron Pantone from Michael's for $7.99.

  I did use my 40% off Coupon. It's a little more pricey 
for the amount, but use those coupons and save.
