Carrie’s Note:  I left the chocolate button off and followed the directions for the cupcake liner as written.  The following are the original instructions from BeeKnits

Chocolate button
CO 6st
Starting with P, stst 8 rows. Thread yarn through stitches and round edges of work. Pull tightly to make ball. Sew onto cake, passing the thread through to bottom of cake to fasten off to give a little ‘dip’ in the centre of the cake.

Sew straight stitches randomly on top for ‘sprinkles’

Using icing colour, Cast on 9st.
garter st 60 rows, Cast off.
Pick up and knit 28 stitches on row ends.
row 1: P
row 2: (K4, K2tog) x 4, K4 – 24st
row 3: P
row 4: (K2 K2tog) to end – 18st
row 5: P
row 6: K2tog to end – 9st
Thread yarn through stitches and pull up tight. Sew sides of case together.

There you have it!  Quick, easy, and oh-so-cute!
Many thanks to Bee for allowing me to share her pattern.

    Thanks for writing the pattern in the round, I have been meaning to do it for ages. I wrote the original pattern when I had recently started knitting and hadnt mastered the dpns yet.
