T.V. Tuesday! Dexter Donut Guy

Today or T.V. Tuesday I thought I would honor my favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan, as played by Michael C. Hall.

Dexter is an anti-hero of sorts. Much like vengeful hero’s on the past only instead of bringing the criminals to justice he ends the lives of murders. He lives by the “Code of Harry”. A simple list of rules set by his, adoptive policeman father. He works as a blood analyst at the Miami Metro Police. Part of the code is for Dexter to fit in, as he is not like everyone else. He doesn’t feel emotions,so as part of this cover Dexter is the donut guy.


To honor that small title I’ve made a few hand crafted donuts.

The chocolate one is a pattern that can be found on the Lion’s Brand website. The oozy one ,is of my own creation it was supposed to look like someone had taken a bit out of it. But you know how that goes, flu season and all. I call it Raspberry Scream! I know I’m a total dork. But, here’s the pattern.

Ch 30, slst evenly across and st to the top of the donut. and there you have it.

I’ll admit it does seem a bit more complicated than what it looks, and let me know if the pattern is off any at all. I’m siting it by memory. I know, I know… If I’m gonna be making things and sharing the patterns with ya’ll I need to start writing them down as I go… I’ll get better I promise!
