Crochet Sweetheart Cupcakes Supplies:
These are the items I used to make my crochet cupcakes
- Red Heart “Super Saver” yarn in red, gold, white multi, chocolate and dark brown
- small beads (embroidery needle if you are sewing them and regular thread)
- yarn needle (I like this set because it comes with a storage case)
- size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook
- Poly-Fil Stuffing (or what we call fluff)
- Tacky Glue (optional)
- Cupcake Carrier (for effect, optional but boy are these handy)
You can use larger hook if you want to supersize your cupcakes. Also, the tops of mine didn’t come out as puffy as the original pattern because I left off one row. I used a yarn needle to sew basic stitches on the cupcakes tops before starting to crochet the “cake” bottoms. On the original pattern she has you attach the base yarn after Round 7 to start the cupcake bottom and then sew your embellishments on the top. custodia waterproof iphone se I would suggest not doing this and wait to attach the yarn after you have your embellishments done. Also, although the pattern suggests to keep the yarn tails and use them as stuffing, I found that they got in the way and suggest you may want to cut them off as you go and just keep the tails short. Other than these slight suggestions, her instructions are great.

To decorate my cupcakes, I used small beads and yarn. I sewed individual small beads on one of the cupcake tops but that got time consuming so I glued the small beads onto the matching “yellow” cupcake and then the chocolate cupcake. custodia humixx iphone 7 plus For chocolate sprinkles I just used sewed short stitches using three different matching yarns. custodia iphone x unicorno The ribbon pattern is also just yarn, woven in and out using a yarn needle.
