Free Crochet Amigurumi Pattern: Cherry on top Cupcake

(Shown in (Cherries) Red Heart With Love Berry Red
(Pink Cupcake) Big Twist Value Light Rose & I Love This Yarn! Coffee
(Blue Cupcake) Red Heart Super Saver TurquaI Love This Yarn! Coffee &
Random bits of yarn for sprinkles)


I've been working on this group of cupcakes for a few weeks now, my son kept coming up with new ideas for topping the cupcakes but I think he's finally run out (maybe)! His crochet food collection has grown quite a bit this winter/spring! I've written the cupcake and cherry patterns here but the patterns for the strawberry, carrot & lemon/lime wedge are in separate posts for the sake of this post not running on forever and ever.

Below are the links to each pattern.


 Don't worry much about gauge, just be sure to work your stitches tight. 

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Cupcake

With Cake color:

Row 1: Magic circle, ch 1, 6 sc in circle. Join. (6 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each around. Join. (12 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, *sc, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (18 sc)
Row 4: Ch 1, *sc in 2, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (24 sc)
Row 5: Ch 1, *sc in 3, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (30 sc)

Sew in your beginning end.

Optional: If you would like your cupcake to stand up perfectly, trace the circle you've made onto a piece of cardboard. Cut out the cardboard circle slightly smaller than the traced circle and then place the piece of cardboard into the bottom of the cupcake. The cupcake will stand without the cardboard bottom but this makes for a very nice flat bottom.


Row 6: In BLO: Ch 1, hdc in each around. Join. (30 hdc)
Row 7-11: Ch 1, *hdc, fphdc around next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (15 hdc, 15 fphdc)
Fasten off.

Place a stitch marker in the front loop on the first hdc you made on row 11.



With Frosting color:

Join with a sl st in the back loop of any stitch.

Row 12: In BLO: Ch 1, sc in each around. Join. (30 sc)
Row 13: Ch 1, *sc in 8, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (27 sc)
Row 14: Ch 1, *sc in 7, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (24 sc)
Row 15: Ch 1, *sc in 6, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (21 sc)
Row 16: Ch 1, *sc in 5, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (18 sc)
Row 17: Ch 1, *sc in 4, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (15 sc)

Begin to stuff your cupcake and continue to do so as you go.
Now is also a good time to start stitching on sprinkles if you would like them.



Row 18: Ch 1, *sc in 3, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (12 sc)
Row 19: Ch 1, *sc in 2, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (9 sc)

Fasten off leaving a long end for sewing, sew hole shut and sew in end.


With Frosting color:

Hold the cupcake with the frosting top facing you.
Join with a sl st in the space your stitch marker is in, you can now remove the stitch marker.

 

Row 20: Ch 2, 2 dc in first. 3 dc in next and in each around. Join.

Fasten off and sew in ends.


Cherry

With Red:

Row 1: Magic circle, ch 1, 6 sc in circle. Join. (6 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, *sc, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (9 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, *sc in 2, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (12 sc)

Now is a good time to secure your beginning end.
If you want a stem on your cherry pull this end through to the right side of the cherry after securing it. Tie a knot as close as you can to the cherry and tie another knot about an inch or two away from the cherry. Trim.


Row 4: Ch 1, sc in each around. Join. (12 sc)
Row 5: Ch 1, *sc in 2, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (9 sc)
Row 6: Ch 1, *sc, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (6 sc)

Fasten off leaving a long end to sew the cherry to the top of the cupcake.

Sew cherry to the cupcake then sew in your end.
