Materials:
  • I (5.5 mm) crochet hook 
  • Red Heart Super Saver (or similar weight yarn).  I used the "Minty" "Perfect Pink" and "Tan" colorways.
  • Optional second sprinkle color-I also used a small amount of Red Heart Super Saver in "Bright Yellow"
  • Tapestry needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape measure

Sizing:
  • Each donut is 5 inches tall and 5 inches wide.
  • Garland length can be customized based on the number of donuts you make 

Instructions For Donut Bottom (worked in buff):


Ch 10, then join in the ch furthest from the hook.

Row 1: Ch 4, then work 32 tr into the center of the ring.

Row 2: Ch 4, then work a tr into the first st, then *work 2 tr into the next st, then 1 tr into the next st.  Repeat from * around, then join with a sl st to close the round.

Weave in ends.

Instructions For Donut Frosting (worked in pink and/or mint):

Ch 12, then join in the ch furthest from the hook.

Row 1: Ch 4, then work 32 dc into the center of the ring.

Row 2: Ch 4, then work a dc into the first st, then *work 2 dc into the next st, then 1 dc into the next st.  Repeat from * around, then join with a sl st to close the round.

Weave in ends.

Instructions for Donut Assembly:

Stack the bottom and the icing top on one another.  With a matching piece of yarn from the top color, sew them together with a simple running stitch.  Be sure the center holes are lined up as you work.

Instructions for Sprinkles:

Using two contrasting yarn colors, sew "sprinkles" onto your donuts in a random pattern like real sprinkles would be scattered across.  Try to keep each sprinkle an equal length and place them as randomly as possible.


Instructions for Turning Your Donuts Into A Garland:

Line up your donuts as desired. Using one of the yarn colors from the icing top (I used the mint color), chain 30 for the handle/hanging tie, then work a slip stitch into the back loops only in the the topmost 4 stitches of the first donut.  Chain 12, then add a second donut the same way (a slip stitch in the back loop only into the 4 topmost stitches of the donut).  Repeat for the rest of your donuts.  After the last donut is incorporated into the garland, chain 30 to create a handle/hanging tie for the other side.
