Donut Worry, Be Happy (Patterns)

Good Morning!

Today is a beautiful and breezy spring day. All the windows are open and my cat couldn’t be happier lounging in front of the patio door. Me on the other hand, am covered under a blanket and sipping tea because my allergies have given me a nice sore throat. But I don’t want this to ruin the day! Accompanied with my tea are some nice Krispy Kreme donuts, and I figured I hadn’t published a pattern in FOREVER. So here are two very easy donut patterns 🙂

There are two different sizes, the smaller donuts were made with Simply Soft yarn and the larger with Red Heart yarn. I worked in joined rounds but working in spirals works too, they just may look slightly different form the pictures above.


  • Yarn size 4 (ex: Red Heart, Bernate, Simply Soft, ect)
  • 2.75 mm and 3.5 mm
  • Yarn needle
  • Stuffing


  • Sc = Single Crochet/Single Stitch
  • St = Stitch
  • Sl St = Slip Stitch
  • Ch = Chain
  • Hdc = Half Double Crochet
  • Dc = Double Crochet

Tiny Donut Pattern

Donut bottom:

1.    MR 8 (don’t close too tight)
2.    2sc each st (16)
3.    Sc, 2sc in next st (24)
4-6. Sc 24
7.    Sc, 2tog

1.   MR 10
2.   2sc in each St (20)
3.   Sc, 2sc in eact St (25)
4.   Sc, Hdc, Dc, Hdc, Sc, repeat to end.

Assembly for these are pretty easy, stuff and sew the middle of the donut bottom. Then sew the frosting to the top, that’s about it!

*This pattern is for the donut bottom and frosting.

Ch 15 and join
1.      Sc 22 around the Ch
2.      Sc, 2sc in next St (33)
3-5.   Sc 33. Leave a long tail.


The easiest way to assemble these is to take both donut pieces, and turning the bottom inside out. Place the frosting side on top and sew the middles together. Once they are secure, sew the outer rim stuffing as you go. Top it off with some sprinkles and you’ve got yourself a snack!

My love of these sweets has extended into more of my work, like these donut coasters:


They are up at my Etsy shop with a few other coasters that I made. Also who doesn’t love the colorfulness of donuts? They just make you feel good. Thanks donuts, crochet and edible ones, you brighten my day!
