Birthday Cake Secret Box Free Pattern

Not in my nature to hide anything. I can not close my mouth when I opened my heart. Charles Dickens

Happy day 38!

After finishing my birthday cake yesterday, after adding the cherry topping, and make the tray, I realized that the cake flats were too high, they were offset by the width of the piece. So decided rework, and rewrite the pattern. It has taken hard work, but I think now has been much better. You can find the pattern at the end of this post.

I changed the colors to see the effect of [sl st] in the corners. (You can find the tutorial of this special stitch in my Tutorials section). It has been nice not? You can use the color scheme you like, or you can do with amount of yarn you have saved around. You can customize all you want, your imagination is the limit!

Moreover, by remaking the pattern, I realized that if the tray was smaller than the cake, could create a secret box inside the cake, where you can hide another gift, money, photo, your earrings, a nice ring...

I changed the layout of the patterns. I tried to make the pages with the pattern strictly, without photos, said to be more economical printing. How about the new look of my patterns? You like it? Would you like to I update the previous patterns with this design? Comment please! Also, I added a column Checks, with blank squares, so you can check off each row with pencil when is done, no more need a row counter to keep the account. You seem it practical? ^___^ I'm always making little rounds in my patterns on the sides.

Thanks for your patience in advance. Tomorrow the sun will rise again!

Sweet kisses!
