Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my Donut Coaster free crochet pattern with you! This pattern also makes an adorable donut garland or applique. This crochet project whips up quickly and makes a great handmade gift idea!
Each donut is worked in flat rounds of single crochet and consists of the donut base and frosting. The finished donuts measure approximately 4 inches wide. Optional embellishments include a face and sprinkles, which are stitched on using a tapestry needle. You could easily make a larger donut by increasing yarn and hook sizes.

Most all of my patterns can be found in printable versions in my Etsy Shop. My printable crochet patterns are condensed, ad-free PDFs written for those of us who prefer to work from a paper pattern instead of a screen.
I love a good video tutorial! This video tutorial of How to Crochet: Donut Coasters (Donut Garland / Donut Applique) is designed as a visual tool to go along with the written pattern found here on my blog. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more fun patterns and tutorials!

Face & Sprinkles
The cute little face and sprinkles are optional additions to this donut coaster. If you choose to add them, they are stitched directly onto the frosting piece with a tapestry needle. Tie off and trim on the back side of the frosting.
The eyes and mouth are little 'V's that aren't pulled to tightly so they resemble little curves.
The sprinkles are stitched in any direction or color you'd like.
Using the long tail on the frosting and a tapestry needle, attach the frosting to the top of the donut base. Once securely stitched on, tie off and trim any excess on the back side.
I hope you have enjoyed creating with me! I had so much fun designing this donut coaster pattern for you!
