Modular Crochet Ball with optional Spikes
Created By:
Craft: crochet
Materials: I used up 5 balls of yarn. I used different yarns which made it pretty hard, but I think it looks pretty harmonic now. <-- green & yellow (I like strong colours.)
Pattern Source: original:

It took some weeks until I finished this pattern because it meant a lot of ripping and redoing. On the right you can see a sewed ball, on the left a crocheted ball.

You can turn some of the modules in and out, so that it has either a spiky or a normal surface.

The crocheted ball is heavier and much easier to grip. Therefore it is more suitable for toddlers.

My husband and I love the fresh colors and how it feels.

I have done the sewed ball first. It is a good way to test patterns with easy shapes, because it is faster than crocheting.
