What you will need:
• 7 pieces of CRO&KNIT T-shirt Yarn (donut x3, toppings x3 Sprinkles x1).
• 7.00 mm crochet hook.
• A large needle for weaving in the ends.
• Stuffing. NOTE: you can use any color/kind of yarn leftovers you have at home to make the sprinkles.
• Slip stitch - sl st.
• Chain - ch.
• Single crochet increase - inc.
• Single crochet - sc.
• * Repeat the set mentioned inside *.
This project will be worked in spiral and the standard stitch required to crochet is single crochet - sc. The overall skill level required to complete this project is advance.
NOTE: this pattern uses single crochet stitches and it is recommended to crochet tight stitches if you are used to crocheting stitches loosely to reduce gaps between stitches.
A circle with about 14” diameter and 4” in height.
Use the donut base color for this part.
Start with making 42 chains.
Round One: make 1 sc in the first chain made to join in the circle then 1 sc in every stitch. Place your stitch marker in the last stitch of this round.
Round Two: 1 sc all around.
Round Three: 3 sc in the next three stitches and an inc in the 4th stitch. Keep repeating * 6 sc, inc * five times and 3 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Four: keep repeating * 7 sc, inc * all around.
Round Five: 4 sc in the next four stitches and an inc in the 5th stitch. Keep repeating * 8 sc, inc * five times and 4 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Six: keep repeating * 9 sc, inc * all around.
Round Seven: 5 sc in the next five stitches and an inc in the 6th stitch. Keep repeating * 10 sc, inc * five times and 5 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Eight: keep repeating * 11 sc, inc * all around.
Round nine: 6 sc in the next six stitches and an inc in the 7th stitch. Keep repeating * 12 sc, inc * five times and 6 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Ten: keep repeating * 13 sc, inc * all around.
Round Eleven: 7 sc in the next seven stitches and an inc in the 8th stitch. Keep repeating * 14 sc, inc * five times and 7 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Twelve: keep repeating * 15 sc, inc * all around.
Round Thirteen: 8 sc in the next eight stitches and an inc in the 9th stitch. Keep repeating * 16 sc, inc * five times and 8 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Fourteen: keep repeating * 17 sc, inc * all around.
Round Fifteen: 9 sc in the next nine stitches and an inc in the 10th stitch. Keep repeating * 18 sc, inc * five times and 9 sc in the remaining stitches.
Round Sixteen, Seventeen and Eighteen: 1 sc all around and cut the yarn leaving the stitch marker in place.
Grab the topping color and go back to 42 chains made earlier. We will start working on the other side of the chains.
First find the sc that we used to join in the round with and make sure that your work is on the right side. If it was hard to see use the tail from the first chain to identify it and mark the stitch on the left next to it.
Round One: with a slip stitch join in the new color in the marked stitch and make a sc in the same stitch. Then 1 sc all around and place your stitch marker in the last stitch of this round.
Round Two: leave the slip stitch unworked and start working from the sc worked in the same space. 1 sc all around.
Round Three to Eighteen: follow the same steps worked in part one.
DO NOT CUT THE YARN.
Before closing the dount we will add the sprinkles. You can use one color or as many colors as you like. Also, you can add them in any direction vertical, horizontal or diagonal.
To do so, all you got to do is to pull up a loop using the sprinkles yarn from the wrong side to the right side of the work. After that make 4 slip stitches in any direction of choice.
Cut the yarn leaving a short tail and pull it from the right side to the wrong side of the work. Then make a knot using both of the strands.
After adding all the sprinkles close the donut by going back to part two and align the stitch marker from both parts. We will be working with the back loops of both part at the same time.
Round Nineteen: grab the back loops of the first stitch from part two and the last stitch worked in part one then make a slip stitch (make sure that the working yarn is under both loops before making the slip stitch). Do not remove the markers to know where to make the last stitch.
Keep repeating the following: grab the back loop of stitches from part two then the back loop of stitches from part one making sure that the working yarn is under. After that make a slip stitch.
When you reach the half start stuffing the donut and keep doing so until you fully close it.
Cut the yarn and weave in the end. That's it! All you got to do now is to enjoy your yummy huge donut.
