What a sweet way to enjoy your crochet! Make and display them for the perfect no-calorie treat.
Macarons are worked in continuous rounds unless otherwise indicated. Place marker for beginning of round. Each cookie is worked in two halves which are joined around the middle using simple seaming technique. For seaming purposes, the half macaron that has the final round worked with B will be considered the top portion of the cookie.
Increases are off-set in order to maintain a circular shape and to prevent hexagon shaping.
For best results, insert one 5 cm [2”] diameter cardboard circle in between two halves when seaming. This will provide a
firm foundation for the stuffing in the upper and lower portion and will maintain better cookie shaping. Stuff cookies lightly.
