As everybody knows, children like small things because they can keep them easily in their hands. At the same time, toys can not be too small otherwise they can be swallowed.
Said and tried, I will show you how to crochet the small balls that my little son Gustav likes so much. The best for him is putting the balls in a container and pick them out again! Many many many times in a row!! I gave him an old ice cream container and the cap - L0L - of whipped cream can, which can hold only one ball.
Here they are:
• Medium worsted-weight yarn
• Crochet Hook 4.5
sc = single crochet;
st(s) = stitch(es);
[ ] = work directions in brackets the number of times specified.
sc2tog (single crochet 2 stitches together)
Gauge: not needed.
Make an adjustable ring.
Round 1: Work 6 sc in ring ⎯ 6 sc. Tighten ring.
Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around⎯ 12 sc.
Round 3: [Sc 1, 2 sc in next st] 6 times⎯ 18 sc.
Round 4-6: Sc in each st around⎯ 18 sc.
Round 7: [Sc in next st, sc2tog] 6 times⎯ 12 sc.
Stuff with fiberfill
Round 8: [sc2tog] 6 times⎯ 6 sc.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Have fun !!
