Cupcake Dishcloths

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’.

Overall, I was really pleased with the pattern and plan to keep these in my stock!
