French Macaron (Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern & Video Tutorial)

by - June 24, 2020


Hello my fellow crocheters,

I'm excited to share with you my newest amigurumi design, the French Macaron!  This sweet treat is so quick and easy to crochet, using basic crochet materials.


The French Macaron is a sweet, little amigurumi dessert that serves as a lovely gift! You can easily customize this yummy looking macaroon using different yarn colors for the cookie and frosting filling. You can also add sprinkles, beads, or other embellishments. 


It's so quick and easy to make.  You'll need to crochet just the Top half and Bottom half, and sew it together with some stuffing on the inside!


Make an assortment of rainbow macarons for different flavors to make the perfect gift.  There are many holidays and occasions to use it as a present, such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Christmas, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, bridesmaids gifts, and appreciation or thank you gifts!

After you make this French Macaron, you might also be interested in crocheting these other sweet treats!


They're all free patterns on my blog!
