Little Cupcake Hat

This week I decided to try this cute little cupcake hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me. I used worsted weight yarn and the same hook size stated. It turned out to small for a newborn but was perfect for my daughters AG bitty baby. I made a  small change by crocheting the shells in the back loops and starting the contrast color in the front loops.  I also haven't added the sprinkles yet but can't decide if I want to or not.
