This was my first time working with Ice Yarn and I love this Cakes Baby yarns. It’s so soft, self-striping, 3 Light, DK, Light worsted and 100% Acrylic yarn.

This sample blanket measures 28” x 28” but you can make it in any size if you want. If you like these colors and the pattern, grab the Ice Yarn Cakes Baby yarn (4 skeins will enough for a proper size baby blanket)

    I am trying to do the Ribbon Cake Pattern but it isn’t coming out the same – do you have this on video?
    I feel like I am missing something in the directions – I am not getting the X shape.
    Thank you
