It’s no secret: I LOVE DONUTS. My classic favorite is a glazed twist, but I’m also crazy for donuts covered in breakfast cereal, donuts stuffed with custard, and donuts decorated like cute animals! A few years ago, I crocheted some colorful animal donuts and wore them like little hats, but I’ve always wanted to design a giant donut floor pouf for my living room. I know my fellow donut lovers will also delight in having this super-sized treat to lounge on. Your guests will be fighting over who gets the sweetest seat!

1) If you’ve never crocheted a donut shape before, it is recommended to do a trial run through the pattern with regular worsted weight yarn and an H hook.
2) Donut is worked from the inner hole to the outer edge, and then back to the hole.
3) RS shows on outside of donut.
