Make it: Fudge striped cookie pattern

 

The cookies

Backside of cookies

Why a fudge striped cookie?
Well, because I ate SOOO many of them as a kid.
At my Mim and Pip’s, where I was watched during the day until I was in school, and where I spent days of from school, they had a container that always had some of these cookies.

I usually asked.
But sometimes I snuck them! I admit it.

When I thought about making crocheted food, I thought about fruits and veggies first, I admit.
But then I thought…circles (I love crocheting circles…)….cookies….fudge stripe!

So here it is. I admit that the color of the yarn is not right on, but it was what I had, and, since I have limited space and a limited budget, I went with it. I did spring for a whole thing of fudge striped cookies though. I had to make sure this little guy was authentic!

Pretty close I think:

real cookie. Mmmm!

Crocheted cookie

Needs:
e-5 hook
small amounts of some kind of pale-ish yarn and some kind of brown-ish yarn
magic circle knowledge
the real cookie on hand (optional, but great for inspiration/snacking!)

Abbreviations used:
ch-chain
sc-single crochet
rnd-round

Here we go, oh yeah, no need join after each round; just keep going!
For backside of cookie:

  • start with a magic circle, and chain 1, using brown.
  • Rnd 1: sc 6 into the magic circle, but DO NOT PULL IT CLOSED! Keep the whole big so this can be the hole for the cookie. (6)
  • Rnd 2: sc in each stitch around (12)
  • Rnd 2: *sc in one stitch, 2cs in next* 6 times(18)
  • Rnd 3: *sc in next two stitches, 2sc in next* 6 times, (24)
  • Rnd 4: *sc  in next three stitches, 2sc in next*, 6 times, (30)
  • bind off

For front side of cookie: Pretty much the same, but only use brown for the first round, then switch to white (or cream, whatever color you are using…)

  • start with a magic circle, and chain 1, using brown.
  • Rnd 1: sc 6 into the magic circle, but DO NOT PULL IT CLOSED! Keep the whole big so this can be the hole for the cookie. (6)
  • Rnd 2: change to white/cream color and  sc in each stitch around (12)
  • Rnd 2: *sc in one stitch, 2cs in next* 6 times(18)
  • Rnd 3: *sc in next two stitches, 2sc in next* 6 times, (24)
  • Rnd 4: *sc  in next three stitches, 2sc in next*, 6 times, (30)
  • bind off

Assembly:

  • Put both cookies together, good sides facing out, and crochet them together.
  • Once cookies are crocheted together, use brown to make the fudge stripes by embroidering them on. I was not as careful so mine are a bit crooked…you may want to be more careful!

And congrats! You have made a crocheted fudge stripe cookie!!!
Now don’t get them confused with real cookies!
