Kitty Cat Macaron (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - February 28, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

There's something SWEET and SOFT being baked right now...

Meet the Kitty Cat Macaron! 


This little treat is a macaron (or French Macaroon) with cute, little kitty ears and a pretty bow to top her off.  Isn't she just too cute to eat?  Thankfully, this zero-calorie snack isn't to be eaten at all, simply admired and poked and held! 


This little Kitty Cat Macaron makes an adorable handmade gift for many occasions and holidays, such birthdays, Valentine's Day, Christmas, and more!  It also stands out as a unique but super kawaii amigurumi for craft fairs.  You can easily customize your macaron by using different yarn colors, sewing details (e.g., sprinkles!), and adding embellishments (e.g., beads, appliques).
