* second crochet cupcake

Posted on February 13th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Crochet.

I finally finished the other cupcake I was working on. I like it better than the tiny one. It looks more cupcakey. All the relevant pattern links are in that other post if you’re interested.

I’ve always been envious of the crocheters who can make up designs as they go. The cupcake frosting is a first step toward getting the intuition to do this. I’ve been too afraid to try crochet without a pattern, but since it’s impossible to see my stitches with this yarn, I was forced to just try it. It’s amazing how well it works, and how much courage it gives you. For the little cupcake, I just tried to replicate the pattern. For this one, I played a bit more, like adding a picot ruffle around the edge.

    I made those just recently too — after my third cupcake, they actually started to look good!
