…of cupcakes. Well, to be more precise I’m full of cupcake hats.
Using leftover yarn from other projects, I finished these last week but only got them photographed yesterday.
The hat with the light buttercream icing is for a 5-year old. The one with the rich, chocolate icing is for her 16-year old sister. I’m not sure if the 16-year old really wanted the hat or if the mother wanted her to have the hat.
Cupcake hat pattern: Chili Con Yarne
Cherry pattern: Cherries are the Bomb
I cast on 8 more stitches for the larger hat, knit the ribbing another inch and started the decreases when the hat was 9-inches from the cast on edge.
I used a different method for the bobbles than the original pattern calls for and I don’t remember where I got the instructions. The bobbles are 5-stitch bobbles, which means that each bobble has 25 stitches in it resulting in one row with 560 stitches.
I’m not a fan of bobbles.
The buttercream icing hat has a total of 4,363 stitches including the cherry. The chocolate hat has 6,112 stitches including the cherry.
