Learn How To Crochet Macaroons!
I’m very excited today to share this gorgeous post from this years Handmade Happy Magazine, by Jasmin Konrad. I’m also really happy to be adding more free crochet patterns to the site ^_^ and more adorable food amugurumi!
Is there anything sweeter than lovely macarons? Well, I don’t think so, that’s why I made a crocheted version of this fantastic pastry.
You WIll Need:
Yarn in two pastel colours
You first need to make the two halves of the macaron. Choose one of the colours and work both sides with the same colour. The pattern is worked in spirals, so there is no slip-stitch on the end of each round. You may use a mark to see, where the current round started.
Start with a Magic Ring made of 5 stitches
Rnd 1. * inc * (10sts)
Rnd 2. *sc, inc * (15 sts)
Rnd 3. * sc 2 ,inc * (20 sts)
Rnd 4. * sc 4,inc * (24 sts)
Rnd 5. *sc around * (24 sts)
Rnd 6. * sc, dc * (16 sts)
Rnd 7. * sc, dc * (11 sts)
Fasten off and fill both halfs with wadding. Do not stuff too much wadding in, you want to keep your macarons soft. Then sew them together with the second coloured yarn.
