I’ve been naming my patterns for baked goods for a while, now, but usually the connection between the name and the pattern is a little more obscure. This one is really simple: the columns of cables reminded me of madeleines. That’s it. Now I’m feeling quite hungry, so instead of belaboring the point, I’ll leave you to it. Happy stitching!
