Well… this is embarrassing. I released the Spiral Donut Cowl way back in 2020 but apparently never wrote a blog post introducing her to the world!
The Spiral Donut Cowl was so much fun to design, and it has become one of my favorite cold weather accessories! The cowl is constructed from post stitches in the round, then joined together to create a donut shape.
I always have trouble naming my designs, and when I brought this one to my hubby to ask for his “wisdom” in helping me name it (he always has a ridiculous suggestion that I would never consider using), he said, “That looks like one of those butt pillows for hemorrhoids. Why don’t you call it the Ass Pillow Scarf?”
Well, what is another name for those pillows? A donut. This is why I ask my spouse for his input, because even though he makes terrible suggestions, they do inspire me!
I made my Spiral Donut Cowl using one ball of Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle in the Aquarius colorway. I absolutely love the Mandala yarn, and you will find that I use it in many of my designs. The yarn is super easy to work with, and I have yet to find a colorway that I dislike! (No, Lion Brand does not pay me to recommend their yarn, but I wish they would because I’m over here just giving them free advertising on almost all of my crochet patterns!)

I cannot wait to see what colorway you choose to make your Spiral Donut Cowl. Will you consider joining the Straight Hookin’ Crochet Community on facebook so you can share photos of your crochet projects with me and a whole bunch of my crochet loving friends?
I can’t seem to quit designing new patterns, which means more are always popping up here on the Straight Hooked blog. (And many of them are free!) Be sure to subscribe to the Straight Awesome newsletter to be among the first to know about new patterns, freebies and special offers!
Until next time,
