The Crafty Cupcake is an adorable tape measure, pin cushion and small notion tidy disguised as a cupcake!

There is nothing we knitters love more than to relax with a WIP and a sweet treat, or is that just me? Calorie free cupcakes are real.

Hidden beneath the knitted surface is a retractable tape measure, the frosted pink icing icing can be used as a handy pin cushion and the pastel cupcake case can be removed and used to store stitch markers and other small notions.

Instructions are written for both knitting in the round and knitting flat. You will find the in the round version towards the back of the pattern.
