A nice pin cushion is a must have for every needle-yarns-fabric crafter. I finally designed the first pin cushion in all my life! Its shape reminds me of famous French sweets and I called it “Macaron”.

The pattern (6 pages) is very easy to follow. It offers detailed instructions and basics of this crochet technique as well as lots of progress pictures (a few for each round). All stitches are also explained in the pattern and I’m sure that advanced beginners will easily handle it.

This pattern is written for one size. The size of the finished pin cushion depends on the yarn and hook you use. My cushion is approx. 6 cm (2 ½ inches) large across and 2.5 cm (1 inch) high.

Materials: Leftovers of yarn in three colors, the crochet hook 2.75 mm (C) or the size that will give an acceptable gauge. You will need a very small amount of yarn. You will also need scissors, tapestry needle to weave the ends in and stuffing.

I wish you pleasant crocheting hours and hope that you will enjoy this pattern!
