Cupcake Project Ideas

Cupcake is one of our special offerings for Thanksgiving 2022.

Add a little sprinkle of fun with this yarn! Cupcake is a classic round and bouncy 3-ply worsted weight yarn with a tweedy twist - multicolored pops of acrylic slub are blended in with the superwash Merino wool for a little extra color.

We think you can successfully use Cupcake in nearly any woolly worsted-weight pattern (including our suggestions for Intrepid), but here are a few ideas for you. 

For one skein:


Lynn has knit up a Spruced Up hat by Jennifer Weissman from our Fall 2022 Hats collection in Frog Belly.

Antler Toque by TinCanKnits: This is a classic hat with a great cable motif. And the pattern is free!

Haley has crocheted an Alabaster Slouch Beanie (modifying the brim to make it a bit shorter) in Zinfandel.

Free for All Cowl by Jen Peck: Knitting on the bias keeps things interesting and engaging, but it's not too hard. And, yes, the pattern is free.

Sea Spray by Jennifer Shields Toland: Lots of textured stitches here!

Ribs 'n Cables Beanie by Anne Gagnon is another great (and free!) unisex hat pattern. Helen has knit one up in Serapi.

For 2-3 skeins:

After knitting her tiny Sophie Scarf in Sojourn, Babs has cast on a Sophie Shawl by PetiteKnit in Cupcake in Moondrop Grapes.

Hipster Shawl by Joji Locatelli: Easy and breezy with all those cute little tassels!

Walk in the Woods by Lisa Hannes: Choose two contrasting colors for this bold mosaic shawl.


The Weekender by Andrea Mowry: This simple pullover is a great casual addition to your wardrobe.

Widow's Kiss by Thea Colman: Cupcake is a great choice for textures and cables!

Ivy has knit up the First Raglan Sweater by Jared Flood in Quicksilver.

Felix Cardigan by Amy Christoffers: this is a lovely simple top-down raglan cardigan that will work up fast!

We can't wait to see what you make with Cupcake.

Happy Thanksgiving, Babs & All,
I LOVE this new Cupcake yarn.
Babs, I just finished making the Sophie Shawl for my daughter for Christmas. It was a fun quick knit, maybe I’ll make another now that I see this new yarn. YUMMY
