Pattern

Create the original donut body as per the basic donut pattern, in green
BUT:
- don't embroider the sprinkles yet; we'll do it at the end


Eyes - make 2

R1: 6 SC in a MR
R2: 6 inc (12)
R3: 12 SC
R4: (2 SC, dec) x 3 (9)

Close with a sl st. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail for sewing.
Attach the safety eyes between R2 and R3 on each eye.

Assembly


Sew the eyes on to the top of the donut, at the seam of the two donut halves. The eyes should be about 5 or 6 sts apart.

Embroider the mouth using black medium weight yarn (I like to have the top of the mouth between R4 and R5, and the bottom point of the mouth to be between R3 and R4)

Embroider the cheeks using pink yarn.

Embroider the sprinkles randomly around the donut as desired.
