Gingerbread Cookies

Today I am announcing the release of a project that I have been working on for the last few months! Even though September is a little early for Christmas planning I had a fun idea of a 2020 reflection decoration. Which was a masked gingerbread cookie.

This sweet crochet gingerbread cookie is such a cute way to add a handmade touch to your Christmas decor, or a unique Christmas gift. This pattern features a build it yourself pattern instructions to combing your preferred variations with photo tutorial and chart instructions. The pattern includes a range of accessory patterns to decorate the “cookie” along with felt, buttons, and other craft items. The pattern is written in both US and UK terminology.

There are four variations of the girl and boy gingerbread cookie given with this pattern:

  • Full Cookie
  • Head Bite
  • Arm Bite
  • Leg Bite

You can purchase the pattern from my Ravelry store (buy now) or through PayPal below. This ad-free pdf features “build it yourself pattern instructions” to combing your preferred variations with photo tutorial and chart instructions. The eBook has the patterns for each variation and accessory in both US and UK terminology. Photo tutorials are given for each key step as well as stitch charts.

Gingerbread Cookie eBook

This pattern book provides a photo tutorial for each of these patterns Ad-free. The file is PDF. This pattern is rated as EASY — suitable for a confident beginner. It uses standard US and UK English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy. In addition, and as mentioned earlier, it contains how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience. I don’t accept returns, exchanges or cancellations. But please contact me if you have any problems with your order. **Please be patient if you use this form to purchase the pattern. I will need to email the file, it may take a few hours for me to send (it may be night for me!)
