The pattern is from the book, Itty Bity Nursery by Susan B. Anderson. I did find a similar pattern online for free, and Ravelry has about 40 free knitted and crocheted cupcake hats to choose from. The yarn, Bretton from Patternworks, is a machine washable wool-blend…perfect for little ones.
Happy birthday, dear sweet Melanie. I hope you get to celebrate with a REAL ooey-gooey cupcake that puts a great big smile on your pretty little face!
