Chocolate Chip Cookies


- G hook
- worsted weight yarn
- stitch marker
- yarn needle

You will need to know how to:

- chain (ch)
- single crochet (sc)
- single crochet two together (sc2tog) or decrease (dec)

This pattern is worked in a spiral round (with no joining or turning) so, don't forget to mark your place with a stitch marker of some sort - I use a paperclip. It drives me nuts to fumble with those teeny, tiny plastic rings...

You can start in one of two ways:

- Ch 2 and then sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook.


- Sc 6 into a 'magic ring' - do not join.

I prefer to use a 'magic ring' because it allows me to tug on the tail and make the round snug; beginners may choose to use the 'ch 2' method.

Round 1:  2 sc in each st around   (12 sc)
Round 2: (sc 1, 2 sc in next)      (18 sc)
Round 3: (sc 2, 2 sc in next)      (24 sc)
Round 4: (sc 3, 2 sc in next)      (30 sc)
Round 5: (sc 4, 2 sc in next)      (36 sc)
Round 6: (sc 5, 2 sc in next)      (42 sc)
Round 7:  sc around                (42 sc)

Pull up a long loop with your crochet hook so you don't lose your place; it's time to take a break from crocheting so you can embroider the chocolate chips. Use a yarn needle and some brown yarn to make as many chocolate chips as you like. No need to worry about properly hiding the ends here, they will be hidden inside of the finished cookie.

O.K. - back to crocheting: put your hook back inside the loop and tighten it up so you're ready to continue...

Round 8:  (sc 5, sc2tog)          (36 sc)
Round 9:  (sc 4, sc2tog)          (30 sc)
Round 10: (sc 3, sc2tog)          (24 sc)
Round 11: (sc 2, sc2tog)          (18 sc)
Round 12: (sc 1, sc2tog)          (12 sc)
Round 13:  sc2tog around          (6 sc)

Fasten off with a longish tail; flatten and use yarn needle to sew remaining 6 st closed and hide the end inside of the cookie.

Enjoy! You now have a finished chocolate chip cookie and you didn't have to even sew two pieces together - it's perfect. Use your imagination to make sugar cookies with sprinkles, macadamia nut cookies, or whatever kind of cookie suits your fancy.

If you want to make this into a sensory toy for a baby, cut out a piece of crinkle material (ie.: a clean potato chip bag) and place it in the middle of the cookie anywhere between rounds 8-11. I would consider this toy to be safe for babies and children of any age but, as with any toy - be sure to check occasionally for wear and tear.

  1. Hi! Thanks so much for this pattern! I just bought a Cookie Monster stuffed toy for my cousin's little boy and I'm going to crochet some cookies to go along with it! :)
