no cupcake for me

I finished the cupcake hat, but alas, it is too big!

I tried to pawn it off on my friend Wendy, who has a big noggin, but she said she doubted she would have occasion to wear a cupcake cap. I then forced it upon her daughter Lillie. I plan to make another one, since I have plenty of yarn. For the bottom, I used Schoeller Stahl Merino Stretch, a soft and squishy and stretchy yarn. For the top, I used Luxury Mohair. I got both items from elann.

    ooo…I really like those furry yarns and the hot color palette. The pompom (cherry) on the top is adorable.

    That’s so cool! Where did you find the pattern (or did you design this one)?

    I think it’s adorable, Mariko. How could someone “not” have an occasion to wear a cupcake hat?

    M,
    Love the hat! I’m usually just a “lurker,” but I saw something in the grocery store the other day that I just had to post… Chocolate Lofthouse cookies!!! My BF & I got a package and they were half gone by the time we got home. Love your blog, BTW!

  10. oooh, adorable! i just started that hat as a gift, i hope it comes out that cute. thanks so much for posting that dump cake recipe — i made one the other day and it was delicious. (i used two bags of berries and one can of filling.)

    I’m knitting this for my niece for christmas! What did you do to modify it for an adult? Did you follow her directions for adult sizes?

  14. Jennifer says:
