Jelly Doughnut

My daughter loves pretend food and is turning 2 in September, so I figured what better way to combine her love with one of my favorite hobbies than to crochet her some food for her birthday! This also has the bonus that if she throws it at her brother, it’s not really going to hurt him.

I was crocheting a doughnut, and I thought that a jelly doughnut wouldn’t be that much different, but would add some variety to the toys. First I was thinking of a Boston cream doughnut, because those used to be my favorite kind… But then I figured a cherry filled doughnut would be easier to explain than a Boston cream doughnut.

Materials:

  • worsted weight red, maroon, dark brown
  • crochet hook- whatever size will give you a tight stitch. I used a G- hook
  • stuffing
  • scissors
  • yarn needles
  • hot glue gun and glue- optional
  • stitch marker- optional

This is worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to keep your place and move it up as you complete rows. I use a safety pin and just put it through the last stitch of a round.
