June is Pride Month, a month dedicated to the celebration and commemoration of the impact that the LGBTQ+ community has had in the world. To show my love and support, I made a couple of doughnuts and decided to share the pattern with you, because love is for sharing. The pattern uses the colors of the gay pride flag and the transgender flag, but you can easily tweak it and use any color that represents you.
- 2.25 mm hook (or US B)
- fingering yarn in brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and white, light pink and light blue

Hold your doughnut with the top part facing you and slowly push the top part through the hole all the way to the other side, so that it flips. (You will have to push and pull a little bit at a time, as the hole might be small.) See the photos below for reference.
Align the stitches and sew the donut closed. Stuff as you go (remember to stuff very firmly and reshape as you go).
And you’re done! Enjoy your little doughnut!
Have fun and play with every color of the rainbow!
I hope you enjoyed my pattern. And don’t forget to share your finished doughnuts and show your love and support.
Happy Crocheting and Happy Pride,
