I will always be astonished by how popular my Campervan doorstop pattern is – it surprises me all the time. I love how making a doorstop can bring humour and delight into a room and is hugely practical. Lots of people love to make doorstops as a gift. In fact if you can find an appropriate pattern they make a perfect house warming gift.

A good friend of mine told me recently that her daughter really wanted to have cupcake doorstop for her bedroom. Over the years I have made quite a few cupcakes. Do you know my first ever design was a little girl’s cupcake jumper?

There is even on my blog header (I should really get round to change it!) It seemed like unfinished business not to create a cupcake doorstop. I wanted to use a ridge stitch which would represent the fluting of the cupcake case. I also loved the idea of having a cheeky cherry on top. Double Knit cotton is perfect for this pattern. It is both hardwearing and the colours are vibrant.

This was a delightful pattern to create. It made me smile and I am happy with the result. The pattern is currently available in the current issue of Inside Crochet and if you don’t live in Britain you can download a digital version from here.

I wonder if I will make another cupcake pattern? Never say never my friends.
