Any ideas?
I want to knit my youngest sister(that is 2) a giant cupcake. I can't find a pattern for it. Basically I want to knit her something HUGE or just not to small. I'm thinking of something stuffed. She loves the cookie monster,cake,cars(a little different for a girl!),fuzzy things, something with a candle, or just some flowers. Those are just some things she likes if it helps any. If you can't find any, but tried, thanks for trying!

If you find a cupcake pattern for a small one, either use larger needles and heavier yarn, or double the stitches and rows from the original pattern.

Here are a few really cute patterns for smaller cupcakes. Like Suzeeq said, they should be easy enough to make larger.

Here's a cute party hat also: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80417AD.html (you have to join to get the pattern)

Good luck! I'm sure she'll love whatever you make her.

Thanks for the patterns! I never thought of using bigger needles. Thats a good idea. I'm going to try that. If you find more patterns please post them!
