Crochet Donuts (Free Pattern)

“Cops love donuts! Which is an interesting stereotype because you know who else likes donuts? Absolutely everyone.” – Jim Gaffigan

He’s right, you know. Everybody loves a good donut. And though you might limit yourself to just one of these delectable treats, you can make yourself an entire baker’s dozen of these crocheted donuts with no feelings of guilt whatsoever!

These sweet snacks would be perfect for a little one’s playhouse, but there’s plenty of other things you could use them for, such as pincushions, door stoppers, and centerpieces. You can also decorate them with ribbon, beads, lace, buttons, fabric pens, embroidery, and sequins. It’s up to you how tasty you want these donuts to look!

Hello Yellow Yarn has a free crochet pattern you can use to create your own baked goods – you’ll need the following materials to complete the project:

  • Size “E” crochet hook
  • DK yarn (size 3) in a pastry color (color A)
  • DK yarn (size 3) in a color of your choice (color B)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch markers
  • Stuffing

Along with these materials, you’ll need to know the following stitches: chain (ch), stitch (st), slip stitch (sl st), and double crochet (dc), along with fastening off. This pattern is marked “Easy” and is a great way to foray into the world of crochet food and amigurumi projects.

The finished donut(s) will measure approximately 3 inches around, though of course it is noted in the pattern that depending on your yarn and crochet hook, the size could go up or down. (Please note that the pattern is written in US terms)

Along with the free pattern, there are video tutorials on the page in case you have any difficulties putting your donut(s) together. There are also photos in case you need some inspiration for how to decorate your baked goods with various colors of frosting, sprinkles, or glaze.

If you’re craving one of these gorgeous treats, you can find the free crochet pattern over at Hello Yellow Yarn. And if you make a donut or multiples using this pattern, Hello Yellow Yarn has a Facebook page and an Instagram and would love to see your creations (be sure to tag your Instragram photo with #helloyellowyarndonut)!
