This is the best Christmas baking I have done in years. No calories, no dishes nor pans to wash up. And they last. So why am I crocheting these little darlings. My dear nephew passed away July 4, 2011. From the time he was a little guy, he loved sprinkle doughnuts. If you wanted to surprise him, you brought one, if you wanted to divert him, you brought a doughnut, if for (insert reason here), you brought a doughnut. He also enjoyed sharing them with his siblings and young cousins when they arrived. As he got older, he didn't lose his appreciation for this bakery delight. In memory of him, I have been making these treats.
Two of these have been mailed to family in New Zealand to hang on their trees. I have one on my tree and am busy
stitching baking up more.
The pattern is free from Red Heart yarns and if you know how to do simple crochet you can bake up a dozen as well. As for the beads, the tiny seed beads I used on the one, are just too small. I have bought a tube of larger ones, does size 3/0 mean anything, they are about 2mm in thickness.
Any reader who leaves a comment to this post, will be entered for a chance to win a sweet treat of a couple of these doughnuts. I'll close the contest some time after the 25th.
