Cupcake Java Jammies crochet pattern

As promised, here's the original pattern I came up with for Cupcake Java Jammies, a cozy for your coffee cup.  I used a picture of Twinkie Chan's cupcake cozy for inspiration, but since I couldn't find a pattern of her's for them, I came up with one of my own. 


Cupcake Java Jammies

 Materials:  WW yarn in 2 colors (cake and frosting)
                    I hook
                    tapestry needle
                    pompoms
                    fabric glue

 This pattern is worked in 3 parts; the cake, the frosting and the piping around to cover where the cake and frosting meet. 

 Cake:
With cake color, ch 10.  Turn.

 Row 1:  1 hdc (in back loop only from here to the end of the cake piece) in second ch from hook and across, turn.

Row 2:  1hdc in each st across, turn

Repeat Row 2 until your work reaches 10 inches long.  Finish off, leaving a 15in tail for sewing.  With tail and tapestry needle, sew the last row to your first row, making a small tube.  Finish off and weave in tail.

Frosting:

Attach frosting color to the top of the seam. 

Row 1:  35 sc spaced evenly around the top of the tube.  Join with sl st into first sc.

Row 2:  Ch 3, 1 dc in first st, *SPECIAL STITCH: yarn over, insert hook in same st as the first dc, yarn over, bring up loop, yarn over, insert hook in next st, yarn over, bring up loop, yarn over and pull through the first 4 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops on hook*, repeat from * to * around.  Join with sl st into first st.

Row 3:  Ch 3, 1 dc in first st, SPECIAL STITCH in each st around, join with sl st into first st.

Row 4:  Ch 3, 1 dc in first st, SPECIAL STITCH in each st around, join with sl st into first st. 

Finish off. 

Piping:  The piping is made by creating a chain of BOBBLE STITCHES then sewing it onto the cupcake.

BOBBLE STITCH:  *Yarn over twice,  insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up one loop, pull through one loop on hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops.*  This is called an Incomplete Treble Crochet.  Repeat from * to * 4 more times to make 4 incomplete treble crochets in that same st.  There will be 5 loops left on the hook.  Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. 

With frosting color, [ch 3, in 3rd ch from hook, work BOBBLE STITCH].  Repeat from [ to ] again and again until the chain of BOBBLE STITCHES is long enough to go around the whole cupcake.  Finish off leaving a 15in chain for sewing.  Sew chain onto the cupcake to cover the seam where the cake meets the frosting.   

Apply several small dots of fabric glue to frosting area, add pompoms and let dry completely. 
Shout out to Twinkie Chan for the inspiration for this Java Jammies pattern, (and the BOBBLE STITCH for the piping is my adaptation of her Piping pattern).  Feel free to use this pattern for your own use, and you have my permission to sell items made from this pattern as long as you link back to this post and Spicy Tuesday Crafts.  Please don't sell the written pattern to anyone.  At all.  Thanks.
