Pattern for cupcake scarf!

each cupcake is about 5" tall,
and i used 5mm needles, patons powderpuff and dk acrylic.
you can use whatever you like! :)

Here goes!
i used the brioche rib for the brown part, which goes like this:
setup row: sl1p, yo, (k1, sl1p, yo) to last st, k1
r1: sl1p, (yo, k2tog, sl1p) to last 2 sts, yo, k2tog
repeat r1 to desired length.

First cupcake:Cast on 12 sts with brown yarn.
r1: work setup row of brioche rib. (18 sts)
r2-20: work in brioche rib. (18 sts)

switch to frosting yarn,
r21: k acc (18 sts)
r22 & 23: slp kfb, k to last 2 sts, kfb, k1
r24 -27: sl1p, k acc. (22 sts)
r28 - 35: sl1p, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. (14 sts at end of r35)
r36: sl1p, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 (12 sts)
i find that k2tog at the end of the row gives a more convex, rather than straight line, so the cupcake looks rounder

2nd cupcake:switch to brown yarn.
r1: k2tog acc (6 sts)
r2: inc acc (12 sts)
the dec and inc helps to shape the top of the frosting and the bottom of the cake
r3: work setup row of brioche rib
r4-20: work in brioche rib.

switch to frosting yarn and work as for first cupcake.
repeat 2nd cupcake til half of desired length, then place rem sts on holder, then make another string of cupcakes(i made nine cupcakes on each side).

at end of 2nd string of cupcakes:
work another r1-19 of ribbing
r20: (k1, k2tog) acc (12 sts)graft 1st and 2nd string of cupcakes tog, and you're done!

embellish with beads / scraps of felt / puffy paint etc etc if u like, wear and enjoy!

corrections added on the instructions for brioche rib and r36, thanks Gia! =)

Hi there,

I absolutely love this scarf and I don't know if I'm doing something wrong. I casted on with 12 st. and was ok with the setup row. Now when I finished the 1st row of the brioche rib I end up with 17 st. and when I start the 2nd row I only end up with 1 st. insted of 2 to knit together.

I started it late last night so I don't know if I was too tired that I was doing something wrong.

hi chloe0812,

thank you for your nice comments :)

i'm sorry, my mistake there.. just before you do the last k2tog, you have to do a yo too (so after you do the s1p, leave the yarn in front)

hope that helps!
