It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and there's nothing that says Christmas like a donut, right? Hahaha -- only for Homer Simpson, I guess. Nonetheless, like the crochet mice, it somehow works.
This idea came to me a couple of months ago -- seriously, one day I just had a vision of an awesome Christmas donut ornament -- although in the original vision, my donut was made out of felt. But then I stumbled across this crochet pattern by chance, so I decided to give it a go first. (Let's be honest -- it's so much easier to use someone else's pattern than to come up with your own.) In the Lion Brand pattern, the frosting is a more traditional pink or brown, but I went with a red here to put the Christmas in my donut -- if I'd had decent green yarn on hand, I would have made a second version, too.
I haven't done any felt ornaments this year -- frankly, the material intimidates me -- but I'll get around to them, and my donut vision, eventually. :)
