9 Bernat Pop! Patterns
Bernat Pop! yarn isn't just for crocheted afghans. See what you can knit with it here!
If you've so much as set foot into a craft store some time in the last two years, you've probably noticed cakes of lovely multicolored yarn gracing the shelves of the yarn section. When Caron Cakes took the world by storm, it seems every yarn brand had their day making a similar sort of skein, such as Lion Brand's Mandala yarn, and Premier Yarns Sweet Roll. One particular kind you might have seen is Bernat Pop!
While typically lower in yardage than some of the other self-striping cake yarns, it boasts an affordable price and unique colorways that just beg to be transformed into something beautiful. A common complaint that knitters have with these lovely cake yarns is that they seem to lend themselves better to crochet, where patterns such as granny square afghans and crocodile stitch accessories really thrive and show off the cool colors of the yarn.
It may not seem like it, but there's a good handful of lovely knitting patterns out there made specifically for Bernat Pop! yarn, in both the classic worsted weight format and the weight category 6 Bernat Pop! Bulky yarn. Check out some of the incredible patterns for this yarn below and put those cakes to good use!
Dragon Tail Knit Shawl
We don't know what's lovelier about this shawl: the colors or the border! This lovely piece takes only two skeins of Bernat Pop! yarn and doesn't even require any crochet skills for that unique edging. This pattern is super easy to follow and we recommend it for any intermediate knitter.

Rose Pop Scarf
If you've got two cakes of Bernat Pop! yarn lying around, but you're not quite at the skill level yet to complete a shawl (or never wear them), this scarf is an excellent option. The unique slope of the garter stitch and pointed shape of the scarf is accomplished through yarn overs along the center, which really help the self-striping yarn shine.
Shake it Off Knit Cowl
Bernat Pop! yarn also comes in a super bulky version called "Bernat Pop! Bulky," which is great for knitters who like it when their projects practically fly off of the needles. This Shake it Off knit Cowl can be completed in a single evening if you remain focused, and makes for a quick, easy cold-weather accessory.
No Time Flat Shawl
Maybe you're interested in knitting shawl, but you have three skeins to work through or you're not advanced enough for anything other than easy patterns. That's fine! This No Time Flat Shawl may seem intimidating, but it's actually super simple to complete and only takes three cakes of Bernat Pop! yarn.
Patchwork Chunky Knit Blanket Pattern
This big and cozy knit blanket is just another of the many unique ways that you can use up your Bernat Pop! Bulky yarn. This project will be more of an undertaking since it uses up eight cakes of yarn, but you'll find yourself with such a big, cozy blanket when all is said and done that you won't be able to think of a better way you could have used them.

That's right; this lovely shawlette just takes one skein of yarn, and is made by uniquely utilizing both ends of the skein.
Easy Garter Stitch Cowl

This pattern was written for beginners, so anyone who has picked up a pair of knitting needles for the first time recently will be able to complete this lovely accessory.
Poppy Knit Triangle Shawl

What we can't get over about this pattern is the chosen colorway; it will really help bring a pop of color to your dreary winter mornings.
