Remember I mentioned cupcakes? Well I never imagined it'd be quite so big. Or, after having originally been knitted as a gift, deciding it would really rather stay right here with me.
I'm not sure about the pom pom on the top. I perched it there for the photo. I either have to go buy a bag of the bigger ones (damn! That would entail another trip to Hot Dollar...), make one, or remove it altogether. I mean cupcakes are supposed to have delicate icing sugar flowers balanced on top not red pretend cherries. Right?!
The nitty gritty: knitted using frugalled Patons crafty (yes, I succumbed to Acrylic this once) and the children's cupcake hat pattern from chile con yarne with a few changes. The split for the handle and spout being the most noticeable, but I also replace the nubbles with an idea I'd picked up from this pattern for using an increase row to mimic the overflow of icing.
Still not sure about the top though. Far too puffy for my liking. Maybe I need to attack it with the steam iron?
