... and no free patterns or tutorials since my third post?!?! I am ashamed of myself. Well, let's change that right now. Just in time for Valentine's Day.


How about some yummy crochet mini cupcakes?

Here we go:





Mini-Cupcake Tutorial (finished size about 2.5 inches tall)

Materials
- A cotton yarn for cake (brown or crème)
- B cotton yarn for icing (any “flavor” you like)

- Needle for weaving in ends and sewing Cake to Icing
- Needle and thread to sew on button

Cake:
Rnd 1: with A channel 2, work 6 sc into first ch (6 sts)
Place marker to indicate beginning of roundRnd 2: 2 sc in each st. around (12 sts) Rnd 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * around - 18 sts
Rnd 4: work in back loops only, *sc 1, Sc2tog; repeat from * around (12 sts)
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * around - 18 sts
Rnd 6: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * around - 24 sts

Icing
Rnd 1: with B channel 2, work 6 sc into first ch (6 sts)

Rnd 7: *3 DC (double crochet) in first st, skp one, sl st in next; repeat from * around; bind off and weave in end

Attach Cake to Icing by sewing the loops of Rnd 6 on the under side of the Icing onto the top of the Cake. Finish about ¾ around, stuff with fiber fill, finish attaching the Icing, bind off and weave in end. Sew decorative button to top of the Cupcake.

These are perfect for pretend play. Let me know if anything is unclear, and I will help.
