Free patterns for Caron yarn projects are available at the websites for Michaels and Yarnspirations. These patterns use several brands of yarn in the Caron line, including Simply Soft, Simply Baby and value-priced One Pound and Jumbo skeins.
The Michaels crochet pattern uses seven colors of Simply Soft to create a geometric design from squares that join to form plus signs. The pattern includes a gray-scale layout that lets stitchers switch colors and maintain the same level of contrast. Yarnspirations offers several crochet and knit patterns for beginning, intermediate and experienced stitchers. Patterns include a baby's hooded sweater, a lacy shawl and a simple hat.
