So how was your week? I went to Florida and saw my little brother get married! It was an action packed week, with all the driving and people, and I found that quite exhausting. I’m very comfortable sitting home and crocheting, it’s calming. I love my family but, wow, I do like my crochet time too. You know what I mean?
I released my Betty Cupcakes Bag yesterday and like when I posted the Anna Burger Earrings to go with the Linda Burger Bag release, I wanted to pair the release with a fun free pattern. So, here it is, the Chrissy Cupcake Ring! I love crochet rings and I’ve made a few over the last couple of years and new designs are always too fun!
- 2.25 mm steel crochet hook
- Size 10 crochet thread
- I used Aunt Lydia‘s
- At least 2 colors (I used 3 different colors)
- Needle to weave in your ends
- Puffy Paint (optional)
- 14 scs x 15 rows = 1.5″ x 1.5″
Terms/ stitches used:
- Ch: chain
- Slip st: slip stitch
- St: stitch
- Sc: single crochet
- Sc2tog: single crochet 2 stitches together
- This pattern is worked in 2 parts: the cupcake and the band. Once both pieces are done, you attach the cupcake to the band and if you want, add sprinkles.
- The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
- The band is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st to secure and the cupcake is worked back and forth with a turn.
- I used fabric glue to secure the cupcake to the band. You can use whatever glue you would like, but do a spot check first on the thread before you do the actual ring, as some glues can discolor your cupcake.
- Height: 1″ (cupcake)
- Width: 1.5″ (ring flat)
Row 1: (any color) Ch 25, slip st to form a ring, sc into each st around, slip st into first sc to secure – 25 scs

Fasten off, weave in ends. You can also add more rows here and make your band larger.

Weave in all your ends.
Once your ends are all in, attach the cupcake to the band with whatever glue you’d like. When the glue was all dry I drew on some little sprinkles with Puffy Paint and then a cherry. You can decorate your cupcake however you’d like, it’s a cupcake after all!
