DIY – Crochet Doughnuts and Cookies

Blog thumbnail - DIY Crochet Doughnuts and cookiesThis is probably my last crochet project for a while. The weather is getting better and I am running out of yarn.  Unless a really cool project comes my way, of course! But how awesome are these crochet doughnuts and cookies?!

There were definitely more, but as it took a few days to make (not necessarily consequent few days), the cookies disappeared… I think someone might have eaten them! Before I started, I read several patterns and even tried a couple, and there were some excellent tutorials and some fails that have wasted some of my time, rather needlessly. However ~ never a failure, always a lesson ~ I have learned from each fail and made some delicious yummies!

When making amigurumies years ago and more recentrly the cactii garden, I’ve learned a thing or two about crochet. I have learned how shapes behave with different rates of increasing and decreasing.  I understood what makes a ball or a circle.  All the deserts are based on that principle. Once you figure that out, you don’t even have to follow a pattern.

To make it available for you, if you want dessert exactly like mine, with my modifications, here are my patters:

*Note, I used hook No. 2.5 for all my crochet food, and yarn that indicates to use hook 3-3.5. This gave some sturdiness to the pieces.

Oreo Cookie

Make 2 with dark brown yarn and 1 with white yarn for each oreo.

Ch3

Rnd 1 – Work 13 dc’s into 3rd ch from hook. Join. (14 as last two ch count as one dc). Pull the end yarn tight, pulling dc’s into a tight circle.

Rnd 2 – Ch 2. Dc into the same st. Work 2 dc’s into each next st. Join (28)

Fasten off and weave in the ends. Alternatively you could leave one 40 cm end on one of the brown circles for sewing later.

Lay white circle between two brown circles. Sew them together going up and down through the loops.

Alternatively, make lilac Oreos. Maybe it will catch on. My daughter asked me what flavour they were, and I said “pretend flavour”. She accepted that.SAM_8158

Chocolate chip cookie

With light brown yarn:

Ch 3

Rnd 1 – Work 6 sc’s into 3rd ch from hook. Join. (6)

Rnd 2 – Work 2 sc’s into each. (12) Do not worry about joining as this is worked as a spiral.

Rnd 3 – Work 2 sc’s into the next st, followed by 1 sc into the next st. Repeat to the end. (18)

Rnd 4 – Work 2 sc’s into the next st, followed by 1 sc into the next two st. Repeat to the end. (24)

Rnd 5 – Work 2 sc’s into the next st, followed by 1 sc into the next three st. Repeat to the end. (30)

Rnd 6 – Work sc into each st. (30)

Rnd 7 – Work sc2tog, followed by 1 sc into the next three st. Repeat to the end. (24)

Rnd 8 – Work sc2tog, followed by 1 sc into the next two st. Repeat to the end. (18)

Rnd 9 – Work sc2tog, followed by 1 sc into the next st. Repeat to the end. (12)

Rnd 10 – Work sc2tog all way round. (6)

Collect all together with one sc. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Decorate with chocolate chip (or white chocolate chip).
