Chocolate Eclair

It's too hot here to eat anything sweet other than watermelon.
That being said I don't know why I have had sweets on my mind.
Only one place in town, a patisserie, makes a eclair that is truly amazing.
I am glad it is across town so I can't walk to it otherwise I think I would put back on the 75 pounds I lost this year. At least this version is calorie free.

 What you need:
Worsted weight acrylic yarn
Tan, white, and brown
Size F (3.75 mm) hook
Polyester fiber fill
Yarn needle
Clip to keep place

Work in continuous rounds

  • Chain 2
  • Round 1: Work 6 sc in first chain
  • Round 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around - 12 st
  • Round 3: *2 sc in next st, sc in next st, rep from * around - 18 st
  • Round 4: *2 sc in next st, sc in each of next 2 sts, rep from * around - 24 st
  • Round 5-25: sc in each sc around -24 st
  • Round 26:*Sc2tog, sc in each of next 2 sts, rep from * around - 18 st
  • Round 27: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 1 sts, rep from * around - 12 st
  • Stuff firmly
  • Round 28: sc2tog around - 6 st
  • Sew up end and weave in ends


Very simple, I crocheted a strip 18 stitches wide and 7 rows long.
I worked in back loops only to create a textured look.


With white yarn surface crochet around the center of the eclair. Place chocolate on top center and stitch in place. Weave in all ends.

 This would be a perfect accent to a child's tea set.
