I thought I would share the pattern for these adorable cupcake washcloths today! I have seen THIS pattern on pinterest for a year or so and thought, ‘Man those would be cute! I should definitely make a few of those!’ But alas, I never did. A few months ago I was having the ‘let’s crochet something new’ itch and searched my Pinterest Pattern board for a new idea and came across the pin again. After a quick search through my yarn stash, I whipped out the top cupcake within an hour. Now, I didn’t follow the pattern all of the way through (I mean, really, is anyone surprised there?), I made up my own version of the bottom, and I did not add a little loop de loop at the top.
I found the bottom part of the cupcake to be more work than I wanted to do at the moment, so I improvised with a super simple DC for 5 rows, doing a DC decrease for the last two rows. It worked up really quickly and still looks super cute! You could even extend it a few more rows, but I liked the look of the shorter ‘cup’.
I have added them to my farmers market booth this summer and have sold a few on facebook. I even did a cupcake potholder by making two of them (the back one without the ruffle or cherry) and SC’ing around, switching the color out to match. Everyone loves them! I have done the washcloths in cotton yarn and also in acrylic. The potholders I stick with cotton yarn.
Overall, I was really pleased with the pattern and plan to keep these in my stock!
