Cream Puff

I have sweets on the mind since I skipped my cupcake day. I have major cookie baking to do tomorrow for a belated Halloween party and I know I will be checking all the batches for "poison" so I didn't think I needed a cupcake today.
A little tiny cream puff that won't ruin your diet.

What you need:

Worsted weight yarn in tan and white
Size F (3.75mm) hook
Polyester fiber fill
Yarn needle 
Hot glue (optional)


Chain 9. Sc back across - 8 sts
Working in back loops only, sc each row till you have 15 rows.

Work in continuous rows
Tan, make two.

  • 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 5-6: sc in each sc around
  • Break yarn, weave in ends on one and leave a tail of yarn on the other

Finishing Touches:

Gather one end of the cream and sew down side. Stuff slightly with fiber fill.
Sew top and bottom of the puff together like a clam shell.
Sew or glue cream inside puff.
Leave the top of the puff free so you can pull it up to see the cream.
