Free Pattern: Custard Cream Cookies


I originally wrote this pattern to appear in Craftseller Magazine out of the UK, but apparently the magazine doesn’t exist anymore, and neither does the link to my free pattern! Thanks to a reminder from one of my readers, I’m posting it here now. The pattern is super easy, great for beginners, and you’ll have a plate full of delicious sandwich cookies in no time!

    Thank you Ms. Twinkie for the free custard cream cookie pattern, it looks easy and you can make 24 or more in no time this will look great with my amigurumi coffee, tea and hot chocolate pincushion. Here’s the latest update from Crochet Abode a la Mode, I’m almost finished with the next project which is a birthday toilet paper cozy in Red Heart Super Saver in Bubble Gum pink as the cake and frosting and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Mint and this project is great because this month I celebrated my birthday. So I will let you know what next project I will make. Thanks again and may God bless you.

    Hi Twinkie! Can you tell me what brand of yarn you used? I want the tan to look as cookie like as possible. Thanks!!!!

    • TwinkieChan


      Unfortunately, it’s a shade of Cascade 220 that was discontinued 🙁
