I’ve been gluten-free (not by choice) for about 2 years now. Ah, I miss donuts. My kids love them and have requested them for birthdays in leu of cake a few times.
Donuts are such a lovely dessert because they are both delicious and darn adorable.
Even though I can’t eat donuts (the GF ones just aren’t the same), I can still enjoy their cute aesthetic! These crochet donut coasters are a cute way to add faux-sugary, whimsical fun to your decor.
When looking through my stash, I knew I wanted to use Shine for these coasters. It’s one of my very favorite cotton yarns.
I decided to go with classic
flavors colors: Cream, Blush and Coffee. I also found a slightly lighter brown in my stash, so I have dark chocolate and milk chocolate!
These crochet donuts were pretty fun to decorate. At first I thought it would be neat to use those long barrel-shaped seed beads as sprinkles, but the ones I had were too tiny and I couldn’t fit my needle through the hole.
I scrapped that idea and decided to simply sew on the sprinkle shapes with yarn. I tried both yarn and embroidery thread and they both turned out great. You can decide which look you prefer and go with it.
I also decided to make these crochet donut coasters double-layered. I like my coasters to be substantial, but you are welcome to make yours with just one layer. Simply skip making the second layer and go straight to attaching the icing to the one layer.

I tried sewing a line that looks like a frosting drizzle! To do this a bit more authentically, make sure the line looks like the drizzle goes across the hole and back, instead of zig-zagging up one side of the hole and down the other.
Aren’t they cute?
Enjoy my friend! Happy crocheting!
