Screen shot 2014-02-14 at 4.46.40 AMOh hey! You can pick up my face and a free pattern at your local Michaels store! Lily Sugar ‘n Cream is coming out with some new, yummy, candy colors and asked me to whip up some fun crochet treats for their Sweets & Delights promo! I created two crochet projects for them, and the first one is this Cupcake Dish Cloth! I’ll post the second project here tomorrow! ;). The pattern is also available on Michaels.com (thank you, Elleen!).

Also, by leaving the Stem/Loop separate from the Cherry, you can crochet a green cherry stem if you wish!)

    Awesome!! I hope they have this my Michaels! I’ve been hoping SnC would release new colors!! They need more!!

    • TwinkieChan says:

      The new colors are really cute! I was hoping to snap them in person and blog them, but my Michaels is kinda lame, and it seems like it never gets the promotions that I do hehehheh. I’ll keep looking around!

  2. EIleen Kovac says:

    The pattern is on Michaels website :)

  3. Alice says:

    I made mine all ready!!!! So cute I loooove it

  4. CookieLu says:

    Oh thank you for another free pattern! I simply adore your designs and want to do them all. Please publish another book and please put the hamburger scarf in it, pleeeaaase!!! Thank you!

  5. Julie Wilson says:

    Hi there,

    working on this pattern and I am having a little bit of trouble. Do you have a video on exactly how to put this together. I got the frosting part done and I am having trouble with the cake part. Thank you so much.

  6. Bubbline says:

    This cute design is what pushed me into crochet! I saw the pattern hanging from a rack in a Michaels and it was just too adorable not to attempt making.

    Maybe this is a dumb beginner question, but I’m wondering if there’s a specific way to do the frosting’s edging. I know it’s 28 sc, but am I supposed to spot specific stitches to go through? Or I just go with the flow and put them anywhere as long as it looks kinda even and that I end up with 28 sc?

    Thanks! I loooove everything you do and I already can’t wait to try your other patterns. I’ll definitely buy your book.

  7. Kitty says:

    I picked the pattern up at Michael’s because of how cute it is! I just finished it, but it did have trouble with the cake part. I’m hoping when you do the video it will help me out. I’m going to try another one to see if I improve. Thanks for the cute pattern.

  8. Melanie says:

    can’t wait to finish this pattern… but I too am struggling with the cake :( SO ADORABE!!! Can’t wait for video :)

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I keep waiting for a sunny day that I’m home to shoot the video, so the lighting will be good! Eep!

  9. ariana says:

    If I wanted to use this as a potholder, would you recommend I make 2 and sew them together or would just the one be ok?

  10. Lyne says:

    Hi
    I am working on this pattern and I am having a little bit of problem. I got the frosting part done and I am having trouble with the cake part.
    1st row: work 1 sc in each unworked loop across. Which loop are you talking???
    3rd and alt rows. What that mean exactly. Because there is no instruction for rows 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15. Which row should we work

    Thank you for your help

    Thank you so much.

    i

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Question 1: Your last frosting row was worked in back loops only, so you work the first Cake row in the front loops that remain. I have a video up on Youtube which may help: http://youtu.be/rd4sEDZVSpo

      Question 2: The instruction for 3rd and alt rows is to work sc/single crochet evenly across. So every odd or alt row is just working single crochet evenly across.

  11. Anna says:

    I love your cupcake pattern, just saw your video….very well done!!!
    Could you come to our local MICHAEL ‘S and do a DEMO????

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Where are you located? I’m not sure if Michaels has guests come to do demos or if they fly anyone in.

    Your leaflet in Michaels totally inspired me to take up crocheting. And this video made it possible. I’ve also taken your advice and learned to read patterns. I went to a yarn shop and got a stitch how-to. The cloth turned out so well. And to think that a month ago, I’d never crocheted! Thank you so much for being an inspiration, and an excellent teacher.

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Sarah!! Thank you so much for your feedback. You truly made my day!! I’m so excited that you started crocheting, and I’m really impressed that you were able to tackle the cupcake dish cloth as a beginner. You are going to have so much fun crocheting future projects! YAY!!!!

  15. Imani Manuo says:

    Awwww,

    the Cupcake Dish Cloths are so sweet.
    Thank you so much for the free pattern. It is well-written and was a pleasure to follow.
    I´ve crocheted three Dish Cloths and will do some more.
    You can have a look on my result on my German website on http://imanimanuo.blogspot.de/2014/06/nachgehakelt-anleitung-twinkie-chan.html.
    Stay kawaii!

    I love this pattern it’s so cute. If I wanted to make one a little bit smaller for classroom decorations how would I go about doing that?

  18. Ruth says:

    Hi i seen this pattern at Michaels awhile ago put they didn’t have any free patterns left so I didn’t get a chance to make one. Put then I found your video on how to make it. I really enjoyed making it it was so much fun. I wish you would come out with a book with all those cake tissue boxes I’m sure other people would enjoy that too. Put what I was wondering is how would you suggest to make it into a towel topper. I’m asking because I just found some really cute cupcake towels. And do you have your book out in book stores?

    • TwinkieChan says:

      HI! Did you see my http://www.TissueBoxBakery website? It has a couple of the tissue box patterns on it :).

      I am not sure if there is a quick fix to turn it into a towel-topper. I’m sorry!!! I have a feeling there may be some patterns already out there for that. Try Ravelry.com!

      My book came out in 2010, so it was in a lot of major stores back then. But it’s been a few years now, plus, it’s basically sold out, so it will be hard to find in stores or online.
