Tutorial: Crochet Cupcake with Liner

This photo tutorial is for a cupcake with a liner instead of exposed cake. If anything is unclear, email me at or leave a comment and I'll do my best to help you! I hope you enjoy the tutorial and your finished cupcake. Feel free to sell any cupcakes you make, but please do not sell the pattern itself or claim it as your own. Thanks.

  • three colors of yarn: one for the cherry, one for your frosting, and one for your liner
  • a crochet hook appropriate for the weight of yarn you're using (I'm using a size G hook and worsted weight yarn)
  • a darning needle for weaving in the ends and sewing the cherry onto the frosting
  • scissors 

Stitches/ Abbreviations Used (American terms): 
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • st/ sts - stitch/ stitches
  • slst - slip stitch
  • BLO - back loop only
  • FL(s) - front loop(s)
  • FO - finish off

  • Make a cherry and the frosting as directed in this tutorial
  • I normally don't add a stitch count to my patterns, but the liner instructions have one

To make the liner:

with your liner color and the back of your frosting facing you, find your center most 10 FLs, pull up a loop in your first FL, yarn over and pull through the loop, ch 6

row 1: sl st in last ch st, sc in next 5 (1slst and 5sc)

(row 1 continued) slst in next 2 FLs
this is what your cupcake looks like from the back so far
with the back of your cupcake facing you, fold the liner stitches down as shown

row 2: sc in the BLO of the next 5 sc, slst in slst from the previous row, ch 1, turn (5sc and 1slst)

this is what your liner sts should look like so far, 5 sc, 1 slst, and 1 ch

row 3: slst in slst from the previous row, sc in BLO of the next 5 sc, slst in the next 2 FL as you did after row 1 (1slst and 5sc)

repeat rows 2 and 3 until your cupcake liner is centered with your frosting, slst in last FL

FO and weave in ends, attach cherry and enjoy your cute little cupcake!
