Here’s a perfect crochet macaron pattern to indulge your sweet tooth! With this macaron amigurumi recipe, you’ll be able to recreate the beautiful round shells along with a creamy and delicious filling. It’s light, delicate, and an utter treat!

It’s been awhile since I did a free crochet pattern for amigurumi food. One of my popular posts happens to be my crochet sushi pattern, but this time around I thought it’d be fun to venture into amigurumi sweets. Both are fun and fast projects and they make great little trinkets you can do a a lot of things with.

Normally for my amigurumis, I work with worsted weight, acrylic yarn, but well the crochet macaron is so delicate, it required a yarn with a little more finesse. And Lovecrafts was so very awesome, and they sent me the yarn for this project.

I chose to work with the Paintbox Yarn, Cotton DK yarn. It’s a more thinner yarn and made from 100% cotton. They have a beautiful array of colors to choose from, and I thought the pastel colors would work wonderfully for my mini macarons.

I had to make various batches of macarons before I was satisfied with overall shape and structure of my crochet macaron. Just like a real macaron, you make 2 different shells for it, a top and a bottom. And then I sewed them together in a very particular way. I found this was the best way, so that both the top and bottom looked equally perfect and balanced.

The more macarons there are, the prettier they look! So make as many as you want. You can stack them in a row.

You can stack them on top of each other. They all look gorgeous no matter which way.

ASSEMBLING YOUR CROCHET MACARON AMIGURUMI

This is the part the macaron magic happens! It’s very important to sew in a specific fashion to get that perfect macaron look. You actually sew around the macaron twice! You can also watch how I sew my macaron together here.

1. With the super long tail, sew the bottom shell and top shell together. Make sure the proper sides are facing outward before sewing. See photo tutorial below to see which stitches to sew into for the perfect macaron look.

2. Before completely closing up your macaron, make sure to stuff, and then finish sewing.

3. You will continue to sew around AGAIN, but this time loop your yarn needle through all 3 layers (top shell, filling, and bottom shell) to bring the shells tighter together for a more polished look for your macaron. See photo tutorial below for reference.

4. Hide and cut all ends.

5. Your cute Macaron is now ready! Make a bunch to put in a long box, or go the extra mile and put some tasty toppings on top.
