Using the whipstitch, seam the last round of the doughnut with the foundation ch (see next page for more detailed instructions).
After seaming a set of stitches, make sure to add enough stuffing before moving on to the next portion of the doughnut.
Whipstitch for Doughnut
Step 1. Squeeze the doughnut in the middle to bring the last round and the foundation chain close to each other (photo 1).
Step 2. Draw the yarn tail through the BLO of the first st on the last round of the doughnut (photo 2).
Step 3. Turn to the other side and draw your yarn through the corresponding st of the foundation chain (photo 3).
Step 4. Without going through any st, draw the yarn through the center of the doughnut to the other side (the same side as the last round) (photo 4).
Repeat steps 2 to 4 all around. Make sure to go through all 18 sts and stuff your doughnut evenly!
