inspired by twinkiechan's cupcake scarf, and in a bid to bust some stash, i knitted up a cupcake scarf!

The frosting part is patons powderpuff, and the brown stuff is acrylic.

it's long enough to be wrapped twice, and it's really soft and snuggly. i'm hoping it'll help me fight the cold in Melbourne (i'll be going over to further my studies)  Cheesy

together with 2 other crocheted scarves:

thank you all for your super nice comments! Smiley

i've been debating about the beads for sprinkles part too, however, i am horribly lazy! There are 19 cupcakes there, and i am soo not a fan of sewing. Plus i'm kinda afraid that the frosting will feel "beady" and not as soft after that Cheesy

and now.. for my first contribution to the wonderful world of craftster: the pattern for my cupcake scarf!

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, 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)
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  Grin

and this is the first pattern i've ever written, so if there are any parts which sound funny or wrong, pls do point them out.. thanks!
