Crochet Donuts Pattern

Ever since I made this crochet cake last year, I've been dying to make more crochet desserts! I decided to make some crochet donuts using really bright colors for the icing! The cool thing is that they are very very easy to make and once you get started you won't know how to stop! 

Basically the donuts are made in two pieces; first you will make the base and then you will make the icing for the donuts! The fun part is the decorating part where you can really use your imagination and create some fun decorations!:)

WHAT YOU NEED:
100 % acrylic yarn (light brown for the base, any colors for icing) 
4mm (G) crochet hook
Toy stuffing
Yarn needle (to sew the parts together)
Beads (for decorating)
Fabric glue (optional, you can also sew your beads on the icing)

DONUT PATTERN
Base
With light brown
Ch 18 and sl st in first st to form a ring,
R1: *sc, inc* repeat from * to * around (27)
R2: sc in each st around (27)
R3: *2sc, inc* repeat from * to * around (36)
R4-10: sc in each st around (36)
R11: *2sc, dec* repeat from * to * around (27)
R12: sc in each st around (27)
R13: *1sc, dec* repeat from * to * around (18)
R14: sc in each st around (18)
Fasten off.
Leave a long tail for sewing the donut together. You will pinch the starting chain (18) and ending R14 (18) and sew the donut base closed. You will stuff as you sew.

ICING PATTERN
With color of your choice,
Ch 18 and sl st in first st to form a ring,
R1: *sc, inc* repeat from * to * around (27)
R2: sc in each st around (27)
R3: *2sc, inc* repeat from * to * around (36)
R4: sc in each st around (36)
Now you will start form your icing drops. To form these just work either 2-3 dcs in the same st or work 2-3 trs in the same st. Work the drops randomly around.
R5: sc in each st around (remember to work the drops in some sts)
Fasten off.
 Leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the icing onto the donut base.
And now the fun part! You can either decorate your donuts with beads, just glue them on or you can cut stripes of yarn and glue them on! Just use your imagination!:)
These donuts are really fun to make! If you decide to make your own I'd love to see and you're more than welcome to share a photo on Facebook orTwitter!
Enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. These looks awesome! How big are they? If they're small I might try making a donut necklace.

    1. Hey Hayley,
      What a great idea! They're actually not that small! They're approx. 9 cm long so they would look huge! But if you tweak the number of sts per round (e.g. try chaining 12 to start off) it might work!

  8. These are lovely and so so cute! I can't resist a zero calorie donut :)

    Just a note, on R13 of the base, I think you meant sc, dec around, not 2sc dec around. That will give you an even decrease to the final 18 stitches. Otherwise, awesome pattern!

      Yes, you're right! R13 should be 1 sc, dec! Thanks!:)

    1. Hey there,
      For example Round 1 says: R1: *sc, inc* repeat from * to * around (27)
      You have to repeat the following sequence of stitches, sc, inc, in each stitch around.
      If you notice the sequence repetition of each round is within the * symbol.

      Hope this helps!
      Happy making!

  16. Hi. In new to crocheting. Im a little confused on what Sc,inc means in round 1. Is that single crochet and increase? So i am doing 2 sc in each stitch? If so, then the next round should have 54 singles crochets stitches?

    1. Ah i got it! Its Sc,2sc..i was thinking the Sc and Inc were in the same stitches.

  17. Thank you for the pattern! Very cute. Can you please tell us, though, when and how to sew and stuff it? Do we stuff it before we sew the icing on? And, do you have any tips on how to do that? It's difficult to stuff this shape. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much!Yes you stuff it before you sew the icing on. When stuffing you basically just push the stuffing in; adjust your stuffing and add more to firm up the donut. Hope this helps!

      Happy crocheting!
