Donut Blanket

This is hands down, my favourite project to date!

It was fun from beginning to end and works up 
pretty quick for all the colour changes.
Ignore the fact that you'll have ends to weave a donut and carry on....

The original pattern for this Donut Blanket is from Yarnspirations and is for knitters.
You can find it HERE

I really wanted to make this blanket, so I went ahead and converted 
the initial graph for all my fellow crocheters.
The pattern is very easy, only uses single crochet!

Please make sure to read all the notes before you start.

Ready? Let's do this!

(Donut forget to read the

NOTES before you begin:
-you will notice I have separated the graph into sections
-you will be crocheting just the donut and not including the squares covered in yellow
-the border will be the last step, and you will be crocheting around the blanket at the end
-each square counts as 1(ONE) single crochet
-each row will be completed from RIGHT to LEFT on the RIGHT SIDE of the project
-so you will NEVER turn your work, you will attach new yarn for every row
-it will be much easier to create separate balls of each colour as you crochet along (there will be a lot less tangling)
-when you look at the graph, I have seperated the donut into sections, the number of stitches in each section is totaled at the bottom (this made is so much easier to count how many I needed of each colour in that row)

VIDEO: Changing Colours/Reading the Graph:
I have added a video to my IGTV channel, showing exactly how to change colours, read the graph, tips on how to do the border.....
