Sugar Cookie Crochet Pattern

Crochet sugar cookie

Cookie anyone? This sugar cookie crochet pattern is so quick and easy. Originally I intended them as Christmas ornaments but I think they would also be fun for brooches, hair clips, keychains and play food.

The top and bottom of the cookie are worked separately and you’ll be rejoining with beige to slip stitch the two pieces together. There’s no stuffing required and it’s nice because your ends are hidden inside (still make sure to secure them well).

Don’t be intimidated by the snowflake design on the top. Embroidery isn’t one of my strong points but if I can do it so can you. When you break it down it’s really just a bunch of lines and I’ve included a close up photo to help you out. If it’s too much for you or you’re just not feeling the winter vibe, you could always make it even simpler and just add small different coloured stitches as ‘sprinkles’. Decorating is part of the fun of baking and crochet is no different. It’s the small details that can really make a project shine.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 1.75″ x 1.75″ (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.

I used 4 ply yarn for the snowflake detail on the top of the cookie. You could also use embroidery floss or split some thicker yarn.

Using white 4 ply yarn, embroider a snowflake on the top (use the photo below as a guide).

Place the cookie top and cookie bottom together wrong sides facing. Join beige yarn in any st through the inner loops only (the back loops of the piece facing you and the front loops of the piece behind).

Sl st together through the inner loops only.

Fasten off invisibly and weave in ends.

    1. Hi! Round 4 is a regular increase round. I’ve written it so the increases are staggered so you get a cleaner circle but most of the time you’ll probably see it written as [2 sc, inc] x6. Hope that helps.
