Frosted Crochet Cookie Pattern



It's almost April Fools Day and with all the tricky food (LIKE THIS!) being posted everywhere,  I felt inspired to make a fun crocheted cookie that look so good they might just fool your family members!

This is a super quick and simple pattern. It only took me about 45 minutes to crochet a half dozen so you could easily whip a batch of these up in no time! They were made to look just like those deliciously soft Lofthouse pink frosted cookies. But my crocheted version is calorie free! Yay!



Materials:
- Worsted weight yarn in cream and pink. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Beige and Pink Poodle
- Size H crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Multi color bugle beads
- Gem-Tac glue (or hot glue would work too!)

Abbreviations:
SC= Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet


Cookie pattern (make 2): 
with beige yarn...
Magic Ring, chain 2 and make 10 DC inside ring, join to first DC, chain 2
Round 2: Make 2 DC in each stitch around, join, fasten off 
leave a long tail on one of the two cookies

Frosting pattern:
with pink yarn...
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 10 HDC inside ring, join to first HDC, chain 1
Round 2: Make 2 HDC in each stitch around, join, fasten off

Note: This would be a good project to use the invisible join. There is a great tutorial on this over at One Dog Woof


With your tapestry needle, sew the frosting onto one of the cookie pieces. You want to sew right under the last crochet stitch in your frosting and then halfway down the last DC stitch of your cookie.



This is what the backside should look like at this point

Now sew the other cookie to the bottom of your frosted cookie. 


Work your tapestry needle under the top of the last stitch in both cookie pieces.


Weave in your ends and there you have it!


Now go ahead and glue on your beads with Gem-Tac (This is the stuff that the Queen of Crochet Food, Twinkie Chan uses!) but I will admit that I got impatient waiting for it to dry so I busted out my hot glue gun :) You can use the long bugle beads or you can use round seed beads. OR if you plan on giving this to a child to play with I would skip the beads all together and use stitch yarn on the frosting BEFORE you sew it to the cookie.


Don't they look so tasty?!


They would make great play food for a child's tea party!

    1. Hi neighbor! The only place I found pink poodle was at the Michaels on Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy...but that was before their annoying store remodel. It's a Vanna's Choice Baby Yarn color so you have to look in the baby yarns and not in the regular Vanna's Choice section. When you do find it, stock up! I use this color all the time :)
