After creating my latest Sea Shells Beach Bag crochet pattern, I had a some leftover cotton yarn. The mix of colours reminded me of cupcakes, so I thought I’d design a free cupcake pin cushion crochet pattern to make use of my scraps.
I love how the colourful pin heads look like 100’s and 1000’s sprinkles on my cupcakes!
How To Make A Crochet Cupcake
I have used Aran/Worsted weight Cotton yarn, with a 4mm hook. You can use any yarn type or weight you prefer, but it may effect your ﬁnished cupcake size. Use a hook size at least 1 size smaller than recommended, to keep stitches tight. This will give extra support for holding your pins in place.
