My Tunisian crochet square pattern is for a cookie because that’s what comes to mind when I think of the holidays. I don’t celebrate any of the major holidays around this time of year but I do love two things that are a major part of this season: baking and enjoying everyone’s decorations. I love baking yummy treats, who doesn’t? I initially started off with a sugar cookie with icing as the idea but it evolved into this chocolate cookie and I am so happy with the way it turned out and my hubby found the perfect Pepperidge Farms Peppermint Thins to go with the square! If you were looking for the perfect crochet cookie squares, you’ve found them. I think the Tunisian Cookie Squares would look so cute even as a banner as part of your holiday decor.
