Amigurumi cupcake tutorial

This tutorial accompanies my free cupcake pattern and is geared towards beginners. It assumes you have a basic understanding of several crochet techniques or a reference available–single crochet, slip stitches, chain stitches, increasing and decreasing in single crochet, and how to count stitches. Don’t know what these are? Try Google or your local library for how to crochet instructions. UK residents please note that US and UK crochet patterns use the same terms to describe different stitches, apparently designed for maximum confusion. ^_^;; I use US terms.
