Rainbow Ladybird Cupcake

from Knitting Revolution
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Rainbow Ladybird Cupcake
Rainbow Ladybird Cupcake
Rainbow Ladybird Cupcake

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, sew

Pattern Description:

This is a knitting pattern for our Rainbow Ladybird Cupcake.
An original design by Knitting Revolution.

This is fun and practical to make as only minimal seaming is required: the main cupcake is knitted in one piece from the bottom upwards, with just one seam to sew. Three double pins are used from rows 7-12, to ease the tension from multiple increases (not knitted in the round). The ladybird in its nest of leaves is made separately then attached.

Please note this pattern is for personal use or charity knits only. Please do not reproduce, copy or distribute without my permission.
