Crocheted Cupcake Doilies

Looking for some cupcake props, either for displaying or for photography? Look no further. One of these lovely cupcake doilies can be done in 15 minutes or less. So a quick yet beautiful project to make and admire. Now, that sounds like something I would like to do, I hope you would as well. The doilies are snowflake-shaped so they would be cute on a Christmas table designated to just cupcakes. Hmmm. That is giving me an idea for Christmas already.

 

This very simple design could also be joined together  to make a blanket. Anyway, I used these snowflakes as doilies for my orange and buttermilk cupcakes. I think they were to blame when I couldn’t stop at one cupcake but proceeded to have the second one. My eyes couldn’t resist the prettiness of what was before them and my hands couldn’t resist snatching one more up from the nice doilies :). I digress.

Back to the snowflake pattern.

Here is the pattern (using US terms);

Begin with 9 CH, 1 SS in the first ch made.
