Crochet Pattern: French Macaroon

By Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
There is a bakery near where I am whiling the winter away in northern California that sells a myriad of macaroons. They are so beautiful in shades of mint green, pink and chocolate. Each one gracefully rests upon the other encased in apothecary jars. I love to stop at the bakery and just admire every little detail they add to their baked goods. So, for those of you who are tempted by macaroons like I am, here’s a crochet pattern just for you. Your kids are sure to love them almost as much as the real thing.

Mint Baby Yarn (approximately 40 yards)
White Baby Yarn (approximately 20 yards)
