Pattern: Jayne Cupcake

This amigurumi pattern was made up so I could make some mini cupcakes for the wedding of Carin of the Round the Twist video podcast. It’s a delicious combination of knitting and Firefly geekery. (Of course, if you want to just have a regular-looking cupcake, you can eliminate the striping and just go with a single colour for the whole icing. Any sock yarn will do.)
