After I made a crochet marshmallow more than a year ago, my little sister kept asking me to make an Oreo cookie. It has taken me forever, but I finally obliged. This is a really simple design: just a few circles stitched together to make a sandwich. After you make the classic Oreos, try making Uh-Oh Oreos using yellow for the cookies and light brown for the filling. I understand they have other flavors as well. Of course, the classic ones will always be the best.
Crochet Oreo Cookie Pattern
- DK yarn: 7 yards black for cookies, 5 yards white for filling
- Hook F (3.75mm)
- Yarn needle
- Ch – chain
- Sc – single crochet
- Sl st – slip stitch
Gauge: 5 sc x 5 rows = 1″x1″
Cookie – Make 2
This measures about 1 1/8″ by 1 1/8″.
Round 1: With black, make a magic circle. Ch 1, work 6 sc into the circle, join to first sc with sl st. Pull the circle closed tightly. (6 stitches)
Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 sc in each st, join to first sc with sl st. (12 stitches)
Round 3: Ch 1, *2 sc in next st, sc in next st.* Repeat *-* to the end of round. Join to first sc with sl st. (18 stitches)
Round 4: Ch 1, *sc 2, 2 sc in next st,* repeat *-* to end of round. Join to first sc with sl st. Fasten off. (24 stitches)
Creme Filling – Make 2
Using white, repeat as for cookie, but ending with round 3.
Assembling the Cookie Sandwich
You can either weave all the ends in or cut them short and hide them in between the layers as you assemble the cookie. I did the latter, since there isn’t much chance of the ends coming loose. Take the two white creme filling circles and place them together, right sides out. Using white, join the circles together around the edges by slip stitching through both layers, in the stitches of the last round. Fasten off.
Take the black cookies and the creme filling and sandwich them together with the right sides of the black circles facing out. Insert hook through a st on round 3 of the black, then through round 3 of both layers of white, then through round 3 of the other black. Using black, sl st all around through round 3 of all layers to join them. Fasten off.
Now, part of the fun of eating Oreos is unscrewing the sandwich while leaving the filling perfectly intact. So of course, if we’re going to crochet an Oreo cookie, we have to be able to unscrew it too. To achieve this, take a black cookie and an assembled double layer of filling. Using black yarn and a needle, stitch together the cookie and the filling by going through round 3 of the cookie and round 3 of the filling layer nearest the cookie. Don’t go through the second layer. You shouldn’t see any stitching on the other side of the creme. If you like, you can then glue some little pieces of velcro onto the other cookie and the creme so that it can close.
Now you have some crochet Oreo cookies. Make some more and have an Oreo party. Make enough to fill a box. Now I need some real Oreos!
