Day 11 of the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas is a cookie plate ornament pattern. Mrs Claus has been getting her bake on!
I really wanted my plate to have a festive candy cane edging but you can make it a single colour if you’d prefer. Also these would make a super cute pair of earrings, just saying…

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 1.75″ x 1.75″ wide (4.5cm x 4.5cm) when using the materials listed.
Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
All colour changes take place in the last yarn over of the previous colour.
PLATE (starting with white)
Make a magic ring
R1: Ch 1, 10 hdc in magic ring (10)
R2: [Hdc-inc] x10 (20)
R3: [Hdc, hdc-inc] x10 (30)
R4: Hdc, sc, sl st – leave the rest of the sts unworked
The next round is worked alternating between white and red. So you will work 1 white sc, 1 red sc, 1 white sc, 1 red sc, etc. All colour changes take place in the last yarn over of the previous colour.
R5: FLO sc, inc, [2 sc, inc] x9, sc (40)
Fasten off invisibly to first sc and weave in ends.
COOKIES (make 3, beige)
R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
R2: [Inc] x6 (12)
Fasten off invisibly. If you wish to sew the cookies in place, make sure to leave a long tail otherwise weave in ends.
Using dark brown yarn, sew small sts to mimic chocolate chips. I find it easiest to use a sharp needle and try not to pull each st too tight.
Glue or sew the cookies to the plate overlapping them slightly to create a little stack.
Attach a hanging loop.
