Working on this for my granddaughter. Have you ever made a lining for this donut pillow? I'd like to contain the polyfill with a lining.

Oh yes. Wow! What a great idea. This Donut Pouf is so awesome. Perfect for a tween's or a teenager's room Her friends will definitely like this pillow and will keep on cuddling it while inside the teener's room. Someone will keep on snuggling in this pillow. This can be done in colors that the teenager would fancy.

This is so cute. I think it would make a great birthday gift for a friends little girl. It would brighten up her bed room for sure. I just don't know how her dad will feel about it as he is a police officer. Lol. Thank you for sharing such a cute and easy project!

Instead of the usual bean bag chair, would this not be a perfect addition to any family room? We love donuts at my house so I am sure this will be the favorite seat for all the kids. I hope that they do not fight over it because I think having more than one of these would be overkill.

What an adorable home accessory. From being used as a seat to a foot stool, I know any family will find this fun home decor accessory loads of fun. It is hard to believe that a single bag of poly fill will get this poof to look this full.

I made mine with Bernat Blanket Yarn. I had some pink and one skein of chocolate that I wanted to get rid of. Now I'm taking it to AZ to stuff there and finish for a great-granddaughter (adopted). I am a bit confused on how to put the two ends together and begin whip stitching and stuffing, but guess I will figure that out when I get there, March 9th! Correct me if I am wrong, but the bottom looks like the whip stitch will show? Nancy S. PS I will put up a photo when it is all complete.

Is this the actual pattern from her book?
Jan 24, 2017
Just so everyone is aware, when you reverse search the materials list it's for the banana split pillow not the donut floor pouf. I'm with Stargazer, Twinkie Chan's pattern called for super bulky yarn, I cannot speak for the actual pattern but the material list at least is incorrect

I don't know the crochet term "mds". Would someone help, please? Thanks

Hi swarren, Rnds is the abbreviation for "rounds" - it simply means that you're working in the round instead of back and forth in rows. I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

is the donut made with worsted weight yarn or super bulky? because where i originally saw this it said super bulky and thats what the picture looks like. but the supplies list says worsted? i want it to be big haha

Hi there, This particular pattern is written with worsted weight yarn in mind. You can definitely use super bulky yarn instead - the finished project dimensions would be bigger that way. Hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

With just a few color changes you could make this into something else. A bagel with cream cheese, or mine would be a burger. Darker brown for the bun, some red and green for lettuce and tomato and don't forget some sesame seeds instead of sprinkles on the top! Or even pickle slices! Now iam hungry!

I'd love to see this same pattern for a smaller size project like a bed pillow! I think that would be so cute!

Oh my, how cute is this. My teen age grand daughter will love this.. The directions are great and easy to read. I love the colors and the design. Thankfully I have a 60% off coupon for Joeanns' right now and will stock up on yarn. This is a must make for teens or even younger children. Thank you so much for this free pattern.

How amazingly cute is this? Too cute. I need to make this right now, and the fact that the materials used are Red Heart yarn means that this project will be super affordable!
