Let's make some crochet biscuits!!
A couple of days ago, I saw these gorgeous polymer Monte Carlo earrings by a friend on Instagram. I couldn’t resist making a crochet version of them. With an addition of cute little eyes and a smile, Kooky the Biscuit came to life. Kooky suits her perfectly because she looks like such a cheeky little thing, don’t you think? Not only is this crochet biscuit pattern the perfect size for a key chain or bag accessory but also for decorating or tea party play time!
For this tutorial, I used scrap worsted weight yarn in the colours blue and white with a 3.5 mm crochet hook. The final measurements of the crochet biscuit is based upon use of these materials. You can, however, crochet the biscuits in any weight of yarn or thread but the finished size and yardage will vary.
Skill level: Easy
- Worsted weight yarn in Blue (biscuit colour) and White (the cream colour)
- Scrap yarn or thread in black and white.
- 3.5mm crochet hook
- 6mm safety eyes
- Darning needle
- Stitch marker
Stitches and terms used:
- sc (single crochet)
- inc (increase)
- sl st (slip stitch)
- BLO (back loop only)
- FLO (front loop only)
- The pattern is worked in continuous rounds.
Finished Dimensions: approximately 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter by 1 inch (2.5 cm) high
Instructions (Make 2).
|1 in Blue||6 sc||6|
|2||(inc) 6 times||12|
|3||(sc, inc) 6 times||18|
|4||(inc, 2 sc) 6 times||24|
|6 in FLO||sl st across. Fasten off||24|
|Round 7 is worked in the back loops of round 5 i.e. the same round as round 6|
|7 in White and BLO||sl st across. Fasten off.||24|
Take one of the Kooky halves and insert the safety eyes. After securing them, you can use the white thread to add detail to the sides of the eyes.
From there, we’re going to join the 2 halves of Kooky using the running stitch in back loops only . The running stitch will be worked in a top down motion through the stitches without overlapping. Be sure to stuff as you go.
When the two halves are completely joined, fasten off and weave in your ends. Use the black thread to embroider a smile on the cream potion of Kooky.
And there you have it! Your very own Kooky the Biscuit. Another great thing about this crochet biscuit pattern is with colour changes, Kooky can also become an Oreo, a Macaroon AND even a Venom lookalike perfect for Halloween decoration! Don’t you just love a good multipurpose, versatile pattern?!
