I made these for a Twin Peaks swap.  The large one was a test donut... and the four small ones have catnip in them also.  The small donuts take about 2 hours to complete, including adding the beads... which I did in probably the most inefficient method possible.  I used Red Heart.  To give a point of reference, the second picture has a larger donut that has red/white/blue sprinkles.  That's a real Krispy Kreme donut to give you an idea of how small the other donuts are.

I used this pattern: http://www.strangebuttrewe.com/doknit.htm
To make them small, I just divided everything in half-- CO 10 sts instead of 20, and only do the increase/decrease rows, not the K rows inbetween.  The groups of K rows (like 6-10 rows of just K), I did every other row.

That is so cute!  mmmmm... donuts.

donuts, is there nothing they can't do?

had to throw in a few random Homer quotes.  What's a donut thread without them?!

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

Those are so cute!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Now those are the kind of donuts I could like.  They don't have any calories and they keep your hands busy. Wink
