Yum yum!
So, I met Twinkie Chan at a crochet club and she showed me how to crochet a cupcake, which can then be sewn into a long string of cupcakes to make a pretty cupcake scarf. Here's the pattern for one cupcake, make lots!

  • Step 1

    Pink frosting:
    Use I hook (recommended) and pink yarn.
    Ch 4, sl to first ch to form loop.

    Row 1 - Ch 3 (acts as your first dc), work 5 more dc into loop, turn. (6 sc)
    Row 2 - (Ch 3, dc) in same st, (2 dc) each in next 5 dc, turn. (12 sc)
    Row 3 - (Ch 3, dc) in same st, 1 dc, [(2 dc), 1 dc] 5 times, turn. (18 sc)

    Don't turn to work the other side. Just rotate the piece clockwise to work along the bottom, straight edge of the semi circle you just made.
    Imagine breaking the straight edge into four quadrants to place your frosting scallops.

    Row 1 - Ch 1, (4 dc) into first 1/8, sl st into 2/8. (4 dc) into 3/8, sl st into center 4/8. (4 dc) into 5/8, sl st into 6/8. (4 dc) into 7/8, ch 1, sl st into second ch of the main piece. Break off.

    Hold your frosting upside down.
    Use H hook (recommended) and yellow yarn.

    Row 1 - Insert hook in second to last dc, work 1 sc , [skip next dc, (2 dc) down inside sl st, skip next dc, 1 sc in each of next two dc] 2 times.

Umm, well I tried to doing red velvet cupcakes, like red sponge, white icing, but they looked a little mad. I do some nice one's with a dark brown sponge, white icing and red cherry, those colours go well. But what would look really cool is have the sponge the same colour every time and then change the icing, so you sort of get a different cupcake each time, x

Okay Happy Just checking. I didn't think you would post them without her permission or anything, I just thought she wouldn't post it online for free. By the way: Do you know any good colour combinations for a cupcake scarf? I've been trying for such a long time to get a really cute combination!

@tessel it's a different pattern to her book (i have it too) it's one she shared on facebook the other week if i remember correctly, she gave the pattern to an alternative wedding website to use as a wedding garland.

I love those cupcakes and yours look nice too! (I've got twinkie's book too Tongue) Did she give you permission to post these? I was thinking that seeing as it's in the book it wouldn't be free? I don't mind though Happy
