Cute Enough to Eat!

This project was one that was just for me! After trying out the Divine Hat pattern by Sarah Arnold I have been adapting elements of the pattern into my own designs.

The texture and swirl in the Divine pattern has always reminded me of cake icing. A few weeks ago I was sitting with a lovely fibre arts group in Stittsville, Ontario and decided that I wanted to try to make this pattern into a cupcake hat.

Here is my final result. I love to mix and match knitted and crocheted elements so as you can see the top of the hat is crocheted in a variation of the Divine pattern, in a 30% Wool, 70% Acrylic Italian yarn blend. The base of the cupcake hat is knitted in a light brown coloured 100% acrylic yarn (I like to knit children's hats in Acrylic to avoid animal fibre allergies with the little ones!). How cute is the little cherry on top too! Crocheted in a red coloured 100% Acrylic yarn with a piece of yarn as the cherry stem. 

Let me know what you think of this knit! I have a few more crocheted icing tops ready to turn into hats so I would be interested in making some different variations! Sprinkles anyone?

As always we would love to hear from you! Until next time... Happy Knitting Everyone!
