Cupcake stitch

Last year I came across a blanket design that used a cupcake stitch for the border. I always kept this cute border in mind for future projects. Today I finally had time to play around with this stitch. Below you can find the steps for making the cupcake stitch border.

YouTube video
I’ve made a video tutorial explaining how to make the cupcake stitch.

Materials
– 3.5mm hook (US E hook)
– Fine yarn that matches the hook size. 4 colors: pink, white, brown, grey

Abbreviations/stitches you should know:
Ch: Chain
Sc: Single crochet
Dc: Double crochet
Dc cluster: Yarn over (YO), insert hook in next stitch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, repeat in the next 4 stitches, YO and draw through all 6 remaining loops of the hook
**: repeat between **
(): amount of stitches at the end of the row

Start with grey (your basic color above/below the cupcake)
Row 1: Chain a multiple of 6
Row 2: Ch 1 (turning chain), sc in each stitch

Change to brown
Row 3: 1DC, ch 1 (you can also chain 4), skip the next 2 stitches, *2DC in next st,1DC in next st, 2DC in next st, chain 1, skip 3* around to last 3 st (last cupcake made), ch 1, skip 2, DC in last st.

Change to pink
Row 4: ch 1, *5sc in the front loops only, 1sc around the ch-1 space*, repeat till end and sc in last stitches (front loops only)

Change to white
Row 5: DC + ch 4 (or ch 7), skip 2, 5 DC cluster in the next 5 stitches, *ch 5, skip next st, 5DC cluster* around till end, ch 4, skip 2, 2DC in last st.

Change to your starting color again (in my example grey)
Row 6: ch 1, 2sc, 4sc around the first ch-4 space, *6sc around the chain bow from the previous row* repeat till end, 4sc around last 4 ch-space, 2sc
Row 7: DC (or ch 3), *DC around*

You should have the same amount of stitches as where you started with.

    Hi, I have a friend who has a bakery. I thought about making this pattern into a boarder for her shelves. Can this pattern be used for size 10 crochet thread?

      There is no reason in the world why you couldn’t use crochet thread.

    Wow!!!! Neither the written instructions nor the video are correct…….
    I made a chain of 45….. 42 plus 3.,,,, when I come back with the last row, I end up with 40…..
    After looking at the rest of the comments, I gather I’m not alone….Pretty much wasted a whole day with this… first trying with the written instructions and then followed the video (which are different) ….. both incorrect!!!
    Doesn’t look as though you answer the comments or questions also 😡

    You should really check out your written stuff. Your video says one thing and the words say another. I started with 33 and now have 30 doing it the way you video says.

    Hello

    In your written instructions you do not say multiply of 6 PLUS 3, just the multiply. I am using this pattern as one of my squares for my wall cover, that will have 40 different squares patterns and colors.

    your video tutorial says you did 15 chains for the sample but your written instructions says multiples of 6 chains. I don’t understand why you did 15 stitches. Is there supposed to be a plus 3 chain after the multiples of 6?

    Hi there, I am using this stitch to make a blanket. I started with 183, and after making the cupcakes (the white part) I did the 5 SC with Grey in each bow, and I came back with 155 instead of 183.. I’m not sure what I should do.. I am stuck :/
