The original idea for this doughnut pattern was to make something small enough to fit into the pocket of my dungarees pattern, and although it is a little tight, it does just fit. (dungarees and pinafore pattern is here: dungarees)

I tried so many prototypes trying to reduce the size further but they didn’t work out as circular, so this was as small as I could go and therefore the pattern is recommended to be worked with very thin needles 2.25mm (US 1) in order that the doughnut made fits into the dungaree pocket. If you do intend it for this purpose then please use a thin 4ply yarn with the 2.25mm/US 1 needles, check your gauge and don’t be too generous with the amount of stuffing that you use.

If you prefer you can use the doughnut as a stand-alone item, size is then less important and you can knit it in DK weight yarn with 3mm needles to give a slightly larger size.
