Cupcake Knitting Patterns

I love everything about cupcakes.  I love baking them, eating them, decorating them.... but it can be dangerous to one's waistline to keep up this love for cupcakes.  Why not turn the love to a non-edible version by knitting cupcake themed projects?  Below you will find some of my favorite free Cupcake Knitting Patterns.

This pattern search was previously published on Sqiudoo. However, since they decided to punish articles with high link density, specifically mentioning knitted patterns*, I have decided to move some of my pattern searches here to ChemKnits.  The research gone into producing these lists and comments are100% my own as I was the original author of the Squidoo lens  cupcake_knitting_patterns under the username chemknitsblog

*"We understand that years ago there was value is creating a lens with a lot of links to a particular topic like knitted owl patterns or places to buy Ford Mustang parts or Disney coloring pages.However our new standards state that you need to use links in moderation." - Squidoo HQ
