These cake yarns from Lion Brand are just amazing – and let me tell ya why. I’m going to take you through three different collections that are made up of the same acrylic fibers, weight, and yardage. The only thing that sets them apart are the colorways within each collection. How cool is that?! So no matter what project you have, you could probably find the yarn you need somewhere within these cake yarns.
COLORS, COLORS, COLORS!
One of my favorite things about this yarn is that the colors are spaced so well within the cake. A lot of striping happens on its own with little to no color changing for you! I don’t know about you, but I am all about making my projects as easy as they can be. (thanks LB!)
So let’s get down to business here with the three different collections… We’ve got, Cupcake, Mandala, and Mandala Baby. (don’t worry, I’ll let you know which patterns are using which yarns below)
First up, Cupcake! I mean, don’t cupcakes always come first?? As expected, I think these colorways are the cutest of all, and there’s plenty of them to go around. Let’s just get right into it:
- Gelato – pastels have stolen my heart! You have mint green, a pale periwinkle, and all the pinky coral shades. Italian gelato in a cone anyone? (Anybody else getting hungry?)
- Apple Picking – this one would make such a fun, bright fall pattern with its earthtones, reds, and oranges.
- Moody Blue – I’m also a sucker for beautiful, rich shades of blue and this is it – with a touch of taupe and granny smith apple green.
With Mandala, you’ll have the widest variety of colors – there’s a little of everything! Muted and neutral colorways for unisex patterns, bright and fun colors for kids (or just a little something different for you!), and some really nice and rich jewel tones. There’s even a new selection of metallic colors named Mandala Sparkle! *squeals with joy* I’ve listed my favorites below:
- Griffin – a muted, deep and dark mix of navy and grey, with a couple splashes of color
- Pegasus – a bright display of peach and lavender pastels, with cream and grey
- Wizard – turn the brightness down a notch on rainbow colors, and that’s what you’ve got here!
Mandala Baby! This is where you’ll find pastels and bright hues. If you’re looking to make a baby blanket, or to just branch out and make a fun, colorful statement piece to liven up your wardrobe, this is the collection for you. Here are some suggestions:
- Dreamworld – reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream, with pinks, mauve greys, and white
- Honey Dukes – this one shouts summertime with bold aquas, yellows, and peachy pinks
- Magic Moon – a more muted colorway made of speckled purples, taupe, and white
OTHER PATTERNS TO MAKE FOR FALL
1.Crochet Wishing Well Wrap / 2. Crochet Penelope Dress / 3. Crochet Ruffle Sleeve Cardigan
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS YARN
My Wishing Well Wrap was made with the Mandala Baby yarn. And yes, the colorway name is also wishing well. I just loved it so much, I had to use that name for my project too! Just as you would suspect, this yarn was made with your little babes in mind – so it’s super soft and touchable.
Click the photo or link below to check out the patterns and kits! Don’t forget to shop my favorite tools and materials HERE!
- Crochet Wishing Well Wrap Kit from Sewrella (using Mandala Baby) – Once you get into the groove of this pattern, it is so easy and lets you multitask while you work! Also, I only had to snip and color change three times – and that’s only because I wanted the change to be at or very near the end of the rows. Have I mentioned I love this yarn? Well I do!
- Knit Woodland Dream Afghan Pattern from Irina Poludnenko (using Cupcake) – This afghan uses bits and pieces from several different skeins of Cupcake, but my oh my, is it pretty. I could look at those pops of sapphire blue for days.
- Crochet Earl Grey Wrap Kit from Two of Wands (using Mandala Baby) – The striping on this wrap is everything. The fade of blues is smooth like butta, and I can’t get over it. Plus it’ll be the easiest and best twenty dollars you’ve ever spent!
- Crochet Spring Bean Cowl Kit from Little Monkeys Crochet (using Mandala) – Y’all… LOOK at that stitch definition! Rebecca is just a doll and went ahead and made this cowl in the three different colorways available for the kit! Each one is more stunning than the last. By the way, it only takes one cake to make, which means… Eight dollas for a kit will make ya holla!
- Crochet Adirondack Wrap Kit from One Dog Woof (using Mandala) – This beautiful, oversized piece of magic is some kind of wizardry! (one of the colorways is called wizard… *buh dum tss!*) It’s such a wonderful example of the self striping this yarn does for you. It really is what dreams are made of.
- Crochet Hexagon Blossom Afghan Pattern from Teresa Chorzepa (using Cupcake)- This one reminds me of honeycomb! It would be too cute in a kid’s or toddler’s room. It also uses a few different colors from multiple skeins – including that delightful gelato color we discussed earlier. I vote you just make the whole thing of out gelato. Er, the yarn color gelato, not the ice cream… Or just eat some good ole gelato!
- Knit Helix Leg Warmers Pattern from Cindy Grosch (using Mandala) – These colorful leg warmers are bringing some sunshine into my life. Who says you can’t wear bright colors in the fall or winter?! Not me friends.
- Knit Java Wrap Pattern from Two of Wands (using Cupcake) – I think it’s safe to say these yarns are popular for wrap patterns, right? But for good reason! They just stripe so nicely, and who doesn’t love stripes? I can personally attest to my wardrobe being 95% stripes.
- Crochet Rio Kit from Skeinsnsticks Designs (using Mandala) – This is such an eye-catching and unique pattern, I just had to include it. All these pretty open stitches make it nice and breezy for summer!
- Crochet Starburst Blankie Pattern from Teresa Chorzepa (using Mandala Baby) – This vibrant starburst shaped baby blanket (made with that fun Honey Dukes color!) is the perfect size for babies, totaling a bit more than 3 feet in width. It’s great for floor time play or to wrap them up in.

Thanks again & God Bless!

Id love to see tops patterns
Michele F. says
I would love to see some beautiful, colorful shawls!
I love all the sweater and cozy accessory patterns that show up around this time and for fall! I’m super excited to see what designers come up with this year! I also love the striping aspect a lot of designers are using this year with all of the mandala (and other self striping yarn available)!
I love fall shawl and blanket patterns 🙂
I would love to try making a warp and I can’t take my eyes from the Crochet Adirondack Wrap Kit from One Dog Woof! It looks amazing!
Fall patterns I’d love to see: sweaters and cardigans. They work up so beautifully with cake yarn.
Debby Cardillo says

I think the Mandala Cakes are all perfect for making cowls and longer shawls for the cooler weather. A nice leaf pattern stitch on a double wrapped cowl would look amazing!
Chantal Collin says
In the fall, I like to crochet wraps but also crocheting hats and scarves for charity. Winters can be very cold in Canada and people need warm outerwear..
If I may add one more item, I always have an Afghan in progress!

I wish I were brave enough to go out on my own and start a blog. I love crochet and knot projects. The yarn cakes look great. My problem is picking out a pattern after picking out a color set

The link for pattern 4 (Crochet Spring Bean Cowl Kit from Little Monkeys Crochet) is pointed to wrong kit. It is pointed to “Wanders Wrap from Jessica” instead of this Spring Bean Cowl.
#10 links to the wrong kit. Do you have the correct link? I kinda *need* to make that baby blanket 😉
So few knitting patterns
Do you have any patterns for a scarf using lionbrand mandala for an 8 year old girl? Lol
