Crochet a Pokeball

IMG_5924

Gotta catch ‘em all! Whip up a couple of crocheted Pokeballs, and they’re sure to be a hit. Made with worsted weight yarn, this finished plush measures approximately 2½ inches tall.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed:

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in cherry red, white and black.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Yarn needle

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted.
