How to Make a Crocheted Croissant

Two of my very favorite things are crocheting and food. One day not too long ago I figured out a way that I could combine the two of them. After a few attempts the perfect crocheted croissant was born.

This pattern is available as a free pdf download from Ravelry.

Step 1: Materials, Sizing, & Abbreviations

Picture of Materials, Sizing, & Abbreviations
Materials Needed:
- Worsted weight yarn in yellow
- 4.0 mm Hook (G)
- Yarn needle
- Piece of wire/pipe cleaner
- Scissors

Correct Size:
Sizing is important with croissants. If it is too short or too long there will not be the correct number of segments and it will end up looking quite silly. My croissant was about 6.5 inches wide and 12 inches tall before rolled and 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall after it was rolled.


Abbreviations Explained:
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- dec: decrease
- FO: fasten off

LOL I think the better question is why does one need a crocheted croissant?
Okay, it's incredibly cute, but still . . .

mmm... wool.
Kids love to play with pretend food. When you don't have any you have to work with empty play dishes. No fun! Instead of tea time kids probably play restaurant. lol

It is not food, but make a crocheted instructables robot! :) Very nice work you have there, good job.

I may just do that. I'm running low on yellow yarn though so it could be a while before I do. :)
And thank you very much!
