~ cake for all ~


- 1 1/2 oz. 4-ply ww acrylic
- J hook
- styrofoam  5" round x 2" thick
- flowers
- glue

Size:  approximately 6 1/2" (including ruffle) x 2 1/2"


- do not join rnds, use a stitch marker
- I had to make my own size of the styrofoam (gluing and trimming)
- I crochet tight so you may want to adjust the size of your crochet hook

 - for top and sides:

Rnd 1:  Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.

Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around.

Rnd 3:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) around.

Rnd 4:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) around.

Rnd 5:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) around.

Rnd 6:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc) around.

Rnd 7:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sc) around.

Rnd 8:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc) around.

Rnd 9:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc) around.

Rnd 10:  (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 8 sc) around.

Rnds 11 - 21:  Sc in each sc around.  At end of Rnd 21, join with a sl st to 1st sc, end off.

 - for bottom:

Repeat Rnds 1 - 10 of top.  At end of Rnd 10, join with a sl st to 1st sc, end off.

Insert styrofoam into top piece.

Matching stitches and holding top and bottom pieces together, whipstitch thru both loops of bottom piece and front loops of top piece together.

(I think that makes sense)

For trim:

Join with a sc in any free back loop, 2 dc in next loop.  *Sc in next loop, 2 dc in next loop.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc, end off.

Decorate as desired.
