Crochet Donut - Free Crochet Pattern

Monday 3 January 2022

This is a crochet pattern to make this super cute donut. You can make them in all sorts of colours!
I wanted a donut that wasn't too big and wasn't too small, when worked with plush yarn. I like this size because it's just a bit bigger than a real donut!

There is a full Youtube tutorial to create this donut here

If you want to turn your donut into something else, please check out my Donut Pals!
