Here is the pattern I made to crochet these popular dim sum staples: siu mai 🙂

Materials:


Note:  I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds).  Feel free to follow along with my blog post to see step-by-step photos.

WRAPPER

Using yellow yarn,  

R1: 6 sc in Magic Ring. (6 sts)

R2: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sts)

R3: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (18 sts)

R4: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (24 sts)

R5: *Sc 3, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times (30 sts)

R6: *Sc 4, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times (36 sts)

R711: Sc 36

Fasten off.  Using yellow yarn, run a needle through every two stitches (do this one row below the edge, or between row 10 and 11).  Once you’ve gone all the way around, pull the edges gently (not too tight) and tie a knot.  Hide the ends of the knot on the inside of the wrapper.

FILLING

Using tan yarn,

R1: 6 sc in Magic Ring. (6 sts)

R2: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sts)

R3: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (18 sts)

Fasten off.

Note: The tan yarn I used was of a heavier weight (thicker) than the yellow yarn, so you may need tocrochet more rows to make the filling an appropriate size [e.g. R4: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (24 sts)]

Work on the face: attach 6 mm eyes and use orange yarn to sew mouth onto center of filling.

Stuff wrapper with fiberfill and place filling ontop (but below crinkled edge of wrapper). Sew filling onto wrapper using yellow thread.  Hide ends of thread into wrapper.

Place siu mai’s in bamboo steamer, and voilà!  You’ve made yourself some gourmet cuties 😀
