This weeks pattern is about as easy as they get crochet-wise. So the actual crochet is easy, but making the crocheted product into a cookie is where it gets more difficult 🙂
You can use any yarn, as long as you use the right hook size. Here is how to find the right hook size for your yarn. I used cotton yarn and a 2.5mm hook.
You also need wire so that the cookie will hold its shape. I used some thin wire originally used for jewerly making.
- sc – single crochet
- inc – increase (sc2 in one stitch)
1. sc6 in magic ring (6)
2. inc6 (12)
3. [inc, sc]6x (18)
4. [inc, sc2]6x (24)
5. [inc, sc3]6x (30)
6. [inc, sc4]6x (36)
7. [inc, sc5]6x (42)
8. [inc, sc6]6x (48)
9. [inc, sc7]6x (54)
Now for row 10 you get the wire and crochet over it like you would crochet over yarn ends. Here is a video that explains how to do this.
10. [inc, sc8]6x (60)
Finish off with a slip stitch.
If everything went well, you now have wire all around the circle. I twirled the ends of the wire so they stay together and put some tape over it so it will not prick anyone.
Now we’re just missing one important part: the fortune message! I took some fabric and embroidered a message, but you can also write a message on paper if that’s what you prefer. After I embroidered my message, I put transparant fabric glue all around the back of the fabric so it would not fray and my embroidery would stay put 🙂
Once you have your message and circle completed (like the circle on the left of this picture), you can fold them like fortune cookies. I made a video showing this step:
