DONUT PINCUSHION


[IMG]http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/1248/donutcircleicingsprinklesml5.jpg[/IMG]



This one is a little bigger than the original donut, so the pins don't stick out the bottom. I used RH SS yarn but I would think any yarn would work. I crocheted it with a H hook but I crochet loosely, you may find another hook size better. FYI ------This hasn't been tested and I've never written a pattern before.

THIS PATTERN CAN'T BE SOLD ..............but the pattern may be copied and the item may be sold.

Materials

Yarn: any brown for donut - any white for frosting
Hook: H or any you prefer
Polyester filling
Straight pins with colored heads

Chain 18
Join to form ring

R1: sc in each chain around (do not join, mark beginning of every row)

R2: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc*
Repeat to end of row

R3: sc

R4: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc*
Repeat to end of row

R5- R10: sc

R11: *1 sc, dec in next sc* (sc two sc together)
Repeat to end of row

R12: sc

R13: *1 sc, dec in next sc*
Repeat to end of row

R14: sc
Finish off, leaving long tail for sewing
Fold so first and last rows meet, forming a donut
Whip stitch first & last rows together (center of donut) stuffing as you go

ICING (optional)
Chain 18
Join to form ring
Repeat rows 1-4 of donut

R:5 sc around, changing sc to 2 dc or 2 tr when needed, to form drips


Finish off, leaving long tail for sewing
Tack icing to top of donut & add straight pins
