Yummy Donut Pattern by Anniegurumi

Hello friends, it’s Annie from anniegurumi again! I am back with another tutorial and I hope that you like it.

These doughnut amigurumi have been in rotation since 2017! I tweaked it slightly from my scribbles and this is the final one. I made so many of these to make as a party game for my son’s birthday. We had the kids stack them and the winner was the one that had the most doughnuts without falling. 🙂 

Let’s start cooking then!

FO, leaving long tail for sewing.

Fold the doughnut so the ends are lined up. It will form a doughnut, be sure the right side is facing outside.
Sew together the first and last rows of doughnuts together, stuff as you go.

When you are finished, weave in all the ends.

Frosting in brown

Work R1-4 of the donut body
R5: sc around (adding drippings where you want by using a combo of 3 increases of either hdc, dc, tr… randomly)
FO, leaving long tail for sewing.

Using scrap yarn, sew sprinkles onto frosting.

Sew the frosting to the doughnut.

When you are finished, weave in all the ends.

You’re finished!
