Cupcake Pincushion

I was in desperate need of a pincushion, so imagine my delight when I came across this pattern for a crocheted cupcake pincushion (I know, I need to get out more). Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to get a good picture of it so I've got two shots to highlight different things.

This first one shows the colours that were used and gives a good shot of the "paper" base:

This second one shows the shape of the "icing" top better:

It was a really quick and fun project. Aside from being a nice pin cushion, I think it would make a great birthday gift. The pattern calls for sport weight yarn and a size "E" hook, but I just used some worsted weight yarn and a size "G" or "F" hook, I can't remember which I used. My cupcake is 3.5" tall.

  • "G" or "F" crochet hook
  • Purple worsted weight acrylic yarn, I used Bernat Super Value
  • White worsted weight acrylic yarn, I used Phentex
  • Red bead for the "cherry" topper
  • Fibre fill

That is cute - what a shame the pattern is no longer up.

Is the Cadbury's in Canada the stuff made under license by Hersheys or it it the UK version?
