Le Macaron

This looks like a perfect set of materials for a macaron, but honestly this is a mix and match of my leftover yarns.

The dark pink is from Stylecraft yarns Classique Cotton collection (color Shrimp) and the blush pink yarn is from DMC Just Natura cotton (color N06).

The Guterman threats is one of my many materials in my attempt of finding my talent in embroidery many years ago. (I failed miserably though).

The finished size is approximately 4,5cm diameter x 2,5cm high.

I used crochet hook from Clover size 3.0.

Meringue (make 2)

With pink, ch 4, join with slip st to form a ring. Alternatively make a magic ring.

R1: Ch 1, 6sc in ring, join with slip st to first sc.

R2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc, join with slip st to first sc (12sc).

R3: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (18sc).

R4: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (24sc).

R5: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (30sc).

R6: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join with slip st to first sc (30sc).

R7: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (24sc).

R8: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (18sc).

R9: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (12sc).

After round 9, fill the meringue lightly. you need to do this only for the top meringue.

R10: Ch 1, sc2tog in each sc around, finish off (6sc).

Filling:

With blush, ch 4, join with slip st to form a ring. Alternatively make a magic ring.

R1: Ch 1, 6sc in ring, join with slip st to first sc.

R2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc, join with slip st to first sc (12sc).

R3: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (18sc).

R4: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (24sc).

R5: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc, repeat 5x, join with slip st to first sc (30sc).

R6: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, finish off (30sc).

Sew the filling between both meringues.

 

Please note that for the DMC just cotton jarn I made 2 extra rounds (ending with 36sc)because of the difference in yarn size.

For the other macarons I mixed the yarns from Phildar Phil Coton 4 and Stylecraft Classique Cotton Collection.
