Free Crochet Pattern: Extra Yum Macarons

This crochet macaron pattern was my first attempt at pattern writing back in 2016. I thought I’d share it with you on this blog!

This easy pattern will show you how to make the macarons that I’ve used for various fiber art installations. They’re super easy and fun to make. You can download a PDF version of the pattern on my Ravelry!

Crochet Macaron Directions

Begin with a magic circle in your first color. This yarn will be the main “flavor” (color) of your macaron.

Round 1: Ch 1, 6 Sc into circle, pull circle tight.
Round 2: 2 Sc in each st around
Round 3: *2 Sc in first st, 1 Sc in next st*, repeat from * around
Round 4: *2 Sc in first st, 1 Sc in next 2 sts*, repeat from * around
Round 5: *2 Sc in first st, 1 Sc in next 3 sts*, repeat from * around
Round 6: 1 Sc in each st around Change and join your second “filling” color. You do not need to cut off your first color, just leave it hanging out of the way.
Round 7: Working in to Blo, 1 Sc in each st around
Round 8: Working in to both loops, 1 Sc in each st around
Cut second “filling” color and rejoin your first color. I like to work the tail of my second color into this next row so that I don’t have to weave it in later.
Round 9: Working into Blo, 1 Sc in each st around
Round 10: * Sc2tog, 1 Sc in next 3 sts*, repeat from * around
Round 11: *Sc2tog, 1 Sc in next 2 sts*, repeat from * around
Round 12: *Sc2tog, 1 Sc in next st*, repeat from * around
Stuff your macaron to desired fluffiness. You can make it puffy or flat, whichever you prefer!
Round 13: Sc2tog all around, fasten off and cut yarn, leaving a long tail.

Weave in end through the sts of your last round and pull end tight to close the bottom. Weave in the remainder of your ends.
