Apparently it's National Doughnut Day? Good thing I made some doughnuts last night. To get the summer rollin' I thought I could try crocheting something new. Doughnuts just seemed like a good idea, probably because I wanted to eat some.
Started out with a basic brown. It just made sense.
Mint because I wanted to make two, for more experimenting.
White frosting on the mint doughnut, not that you can really tell.
I originally planned to put mint icing on this one, but instead went on a completely different route and made it into a bear. I used my biggest hook, so they turned out pretty big. My I-hook is generally my go-to hook, so I didn't think much about how big I wanted the doughnuts to be. They're about the size of real doughnuts, if not a bit bigger. The bear looks especially like a kid's toy. It just needs to rattle.
Excuse the doodled on snout. Just laying out decoration to see how it would look with a face. I kinda like it. I don't know about adding frosting though.
More decoration ideas. I don't think I'm going to go the rhinestone route for this though. Beads or just random stitches of yarn would be better for sprinkles, I think.
Although, it does look kinda nice with just the regular sparkles.
