Suddenly cake yarns and colour wheels are everywhere, and their popularity is no surprise. Not only do they make sewing in yarn ends at every colour change a thing of the past, they are also available in every shade of the rainbow. And because they usually contain two or three large stretches of contrasting colours, the effect is more dramatic than the repeated shade changes in variegated yarns. But knitting with cakes and colour wheels lends itself better to some makes than to others throws and shawls can often be made from one large cake, while scarves and hats are perfect makes for smaller and finer yarns. To make the most of these exciting products, Nicki Trench has specially designed 35 projects, including homewares, accessories, and things to wear, and many of them will only take one ball of yarn to make.
