Cupcakes are Great!
Well, it’s Wednesday already. Are you happy or sad when the week reaches Wednesday? I mean, it’s inevitable that Wednesday will come around and people lookin’ toward the weekend and time off from work, but for someone who works from home like me, Wednesday is another sign that the week is going by quickly and things I need to do are piling up. I intended to have this pattern posted yesterday, however other things got in the way and I then I had to go to my part-time job outside the house. That’s why you’re getting a cupcake pattern from me today. 😀
I actually adapted this from my cupcake earrings, which I’ll share with you at some time. However, because I have a bunch of cotton yarn scarps and the other day I had time, I decided to work on my cupcake pattern. It’s rather easy and you can do it with less than an oz of 2 colors. I didn’t add a cherry or sprinkles, although it’d be great if I did.
*Cotton worsted yarn (I used Sugar and Cream)
**less than 1.5 oz./ 90 yds
*US G (4.25 mm) crochet hook
*4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows
(although it’t not entirely critical)
Terms/ Stitches used:
*RS: right side
*Slip st: slip stitch
*Sc: single crochet
*Sc2tog: single crochet two sts together
*Hdc: half double crochet
*You can replace the ch 2 with a chainless hdc.
*This pattern is worked from the bottom up – back and forth and then you do a border on it. The top is worked back and forth on row 11 of the bottom.
*The chain one does not count as a stitch.
*Color A is blue and color B is speckled tan in the photos here.
Row 1 (RS): A: Ch 8, sc into the second ch from the hook, sc into the next 3 sts, hdc into the last 3 sts – 4 scs, 3 hdcs
Row 2: Turn, ch 2 (counts as a hdc here and throughout), hdc into the next 2 sts, sc into the next 4 sts – 3 hdcs, 4 scs
Row 3: Turn, ch 1, sc into the first st and into the next 3 sts, hdc into the next 3 sts – 4 scs, 3 hdcs
Rows 4 – 9: repeat rows 2 – 3
Row 10: repeat row 2
Row 11: (you just need to work scs around the perimeter)
Turn, sc into the next 7 sts, ch 1 at the corner, rotate, sc twice into each hdc across (20 scs), ch 1 at the corner, rotate, sc into the next 7 sts, ch 1 at the corner, rotate, sc into the next 10 sts, ch 1 at the corner, slip st into the first sc – 46 scs, 4 ch-1 spaces
Row 1: B: Pull up a loop on the first sc (not the ch-1 at the corner) you worked into the hdcs from row 11, sc across – 20 scs
Row 2: Turn, ch 1, sc twice into the first st, sc into the next 18 sts, sc twice into the last st – 22 scs
Row 3: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 18 sts, sc2tog – 20 scs
Row 4: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 16 sts, sc2tog – 18 scs
Row 5: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 14 sts, sc2tog – 16 scs
Row 6: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 12 sts, sc2tog – 14 scs
Row 7: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 10 sts, sc2tog – 12 scs
Row 8: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 8 sts, sc2tog – 10 scs
Row 9: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 6 sts, sc2tog – 8 scs
Row 10: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 4 sts, sc2tog – 6 scs
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Tada! It’s a quick, easy, and very simple to customize and make your own. This is a fun coaster, as you can see in the photos, or you could make it an applique for a hat or scarf, it’s really up to you. I have this dream of a cupcake pillow, but that may have to wait for another post. I hope you enjoy this pattern and subscribe so you don’t miss a free pattern.
This pattern was shared on Linky Ladies’ Community Link Part #11, Moogly’s Hookin’ on Hump Day #100, Oombawka Design’s Link and Share Wednesdays #104 and GS Heller’s Yarn Along.

I totally relate to your perception of Wednesdays. My favorite day of the week is Monday. The world looks fresh and there’s a whole week ahead – filled with possibilities. I love the crocheted cupcake! I need to give this a try. :^)
Super cute coaster pattern. Thanks for sharing!
Visiting from Hookin on Hump Day.
Super cute! Love that it can be a coaster or applique.
It would be perfect temporarily hooked onto a reusable bag for a birthday gift.
That way, the recipient could have a cute bag, and a coaster too!
Lovely little coaster. I like Wednesday’s – means it’s nearly the weekend.
Are we beginning on the icing or the bottom?
You’re working on the bottom first and the top/ icing is built on it. 🙂
Just found it thank you
