I just finished this blanket...I love it...however when you print the pattern out pay attention to row 3 and row 5 they are the same..the problem for me was I accidently did row 3 when I should have done row 5 and added a cupcake at the beginning of a row )...took me awhile to catch that mistake...you just need to be awake that this pattern does require attention to the correct placement of the row sequence....not a mindless repeat pattern...I love it!

I cant find the pattern for the cupcake crocheted baby blanket can anyone help me

is it okay to sell the finished afghans

Hi there, Thank you for your e-mail. Although we have linked to the pattern on our site, we cannot provide you with the permission to sell products using it. Please contact the designer, manufacturer, or blogger directly for permission. - Julia from FaveCrafts

I've made it. It's quick and simple. I used a cream, light tan colour for the cake and used different colours for the icing. (I did try and upload a photo but I don't think it's working, will try again later).

Yep, my photos have uploaded and are visibile above.

Love this stitch

What a cute stitch! A little late on the reply, but for anyone curious, a multiple of 6 + 3 for the starting chain works just fine. C: However, a multiple of 1 will require you to skip a lot of ** repeats to work correctly. Ch 9 is only good if you're looking for narrow, single cupcake rows, so I'd recommend any multiple greater than 1.

well I have made it and it's really cute -- goes to show -you just have to keep on trying - once the pattern is established it's a piece of ""cupcake""--

I crochet everyday - but something in this pattern is getting me -I am on my second row for the third time -I like it and keep trying but it could be a little clearer -- for me anyway --

How many stitches is it per cupcake? I'd like to convert this into a scarf. Thanks!

This is adorable. I am going to make this for a baby gift for one of the women in class. Thank you for sharing

Many thanx for this lovely pattern. I just love to try out different patterns and see the result in the end.

So cute! I am trying to figure out what the pattern multiple is for making a dishcloth .help?

I LOVE this! I'm somewhat new to following a crochet pattern, so please forgive my stupidity here when I ask what the (RS) means in row 1. Thank you!

(RS) means right side. Or, to me, front side.

My friend did this with some fuzzy yarn and it was so cute. Love it!! Now I have to try it!

This is a great pattern!

I jst get this website and i love it everything is put easy to understand Thank you for this pattern.
