Hello!    I like making novelty pillows for my daughters' daybed, and what better for some sweet dreams than a giant do-nut? She snatched it right up the minute I was finished. Smiley

Here's the pattern:
Do-nut: 1 skein worsted weight yarn, G hook
Frosting: 1 skein Lionbrand Homespun yarn H Hook or any other chunky novelty yarn
1. Ch 48, mark last ch, join with a sc to first ch to make a loopmake sure it isnt twisted.
2. sc in each ch around to marker. (48 sc)
3-13. (sc in each sc) around (48 sc) Turn the piece so that the nice side of the crochet is on the inside of the tube.  This is the center of the do-nut.
14. (sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (54 sc)
15. in blo, (sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (60 sc)

33. (sc in next 26 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (168 sc)
** dont cut yarn yet, but make the frosting layer now (below) because it is very awkward to crochet the frosting layer when the do-nut is stuffed**
34-44. (sc in each sc) around (168 sc)

64. match up the edges of the beginning tube and sl st through both thicknesses together, stuff firmly with polyester stuffing once you have gone around about halfway, and keep stuffing as you go. Finish off, weave in ends.

Frosting
1. in the front loop only of row 15 of do-nut, pull up a loop.  Ch 1, sc in same st. sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc. (sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc) 5 more times, mark last st. (60 sc)
2. (sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (66 sc)
3. (sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (72 sc)
4. (sc in next 11 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (78 sc)
5. (sc in next 12 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (84 sc)

11. (sc in next 18 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (120 sc)
12. (sc in next 19 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (126 sc)
13. (sc in next 20 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (132 sc)
14. (sc in next 4 sc, hdc in next 2 sc, dc in next 3 sc, trc in next 3 sc, dc in next 3   sc, hdc in next 2 sc,  sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc) 6 times (138 sts)
15. (sc in next 6 sts, hdc in next 3 sts, dc in next 3 sts, hdc in next 3 sts, sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st) 6 times (144 sts)
16. sl st in next st, finish off, leaving about 2 yards for sewing.
17. finish crocheting and stuffing do-nut.

Add beads now, before sewing the frosting  edge to the do nut. The lionbrand yarn tends to fray at the end, so either tie a knot in the end or put some glue or fray check on the end before sewing.

That's it!  Thanks for looking!
