Chocolate Stripe Donut Cross Stitch Pattern

Aw c’mon, you know the drill by now: new month, new pattern! Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I’ve been cutting back on sugar a lot this year, but I’m making an exception with the birthday sweets, so this donut seemed like a pretty good fit for today’s release!

Speaking of, what’s your favorite donut? Mine is the “sugared” or “sugar raised” donut from Dunkin. It’s a very simple combo: donut + granular sugar. I was first introduced to this delicious combo as part of our Sunday after-church ritual (the church would sell a huge assortment directly out of their kitchen area, so I would grab some money from my parents and scoop one up for the drive home). I always hated having sticky hands as a kid (my one-year cake smash video is me instantly regretting that decision… and I always put socks on my hands when eating a popsicle to avoid the drips #truestory). Glazed/iced/powdered donuts made such a mess, so I considered the “sugared” option supreme (just brush that sugar right off!). Given that there is probably someone reading this right now who has never even heard of this donut, you may not be surprised that it wasn’t the most popular of the choices available. But I love it when things like that happen; it meant there was always one left for me, and that felt special. It does make for a bit of an issue when it comes to finding them these days (as the lesser popular donuts do not get made every day, so it’s hit or miss when visiting a Dunkin shop if they have any at all; when they do, I tend to scoop up a bunch with the intent of freezing a few for later… but they mysteriously disappear before they ever make it to the fridge).

Anyway, I made a set of donut patterns and, even though none of them is my favorite to eat, they are fun to admire as stitch patterns.
