There you are! Hello, and welcome. Thanks for popping over.
Things to Know About This Pattern:
- Advanced Beginner Level – nothing complicated, but you’ll need to follow along to see exactly what I’m doing. As long as you can work the basic crochet stitches, you’ll be golden!
- The video version is below, and the written pattern as well.
- Great for using up tidbits and scraps of fingering weight or sock yarn! You’ll also need a size US E hook.
- Quick and fun! You’ll be whipping these out in no time and have a whole set to give as a gift or decorate your own home with love.
- Make them solid like I did, or change colors each row for fun and funky combinations. Or use hand-painted sock yarns for lots of wild options!
- Dainty and thin and perfect for using while sipping your afternoon tea or your morning coffee. Yes, please!
- Not much yardage needed! So they’re cheap to make. 😉
Aren’t these macarons delicious looking? I made them following Beth’s Foolproof French Macaron recipe on YouTube. You should give them a try! Loads of fun to make and absolutely delish.
I used random yarns I had laying around, all of which are fingering weight. I don’t have these exact colors available for you but you can choose any you like!
So let’s get started, shall we?
