XL Crocheted Donut PillowDo you love donuts? Who doesn’t love donuts? Welcome to my free crocheted pattern for X-Large Crocheted Donut Pillow. So this pillow is AMAZING! I used Bernat Blanket Yarn to create this soft and fun pillow. It’s works up pretty fast, definitely a weekend project that everyone in your house will love. It looks amazing on the couch or on a bed. It will definitely be conversation piece.

XL Crocheted Donut Pillow PinkFor the X-Large Crocheted Donut Pillow you create a top and bottom, add a swirl or sprinkles and single crochet together. You can choose from a variety of colors for top and bottom I used Bernat Blanket Yarn in Mink which is only sold through Joann but you can also use Taupe or Sand to get similar look. I had hard time deciding on a color for the top as I debated between Bernat Brights Blanket Yarn in Pixie Pink or Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn in Lilac. In the end I chose Pixie Pink and used Sea Foam for my swirl. Read the pattern through and have fun making your X-Large Crocheted Donut Pillow.
