Juggling Ball

Lion Brand« Microspun

GAUGE:

8 single crochet stitches = 2 inches [5 cm]

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

JUGGLING BALL
SIDE 1

With A, chain 10. Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each single crochet across. You will have 8 single crochets all together.

Row 1 Chain 1, turn, work a single crochet into each single crochet across.
Repeat row 1 until piece measures 2 inches.

To change to a new color, work last stitch of last row with A as follows: insert hook into last stitch, wrap yarn around hook and pull up a loop, with B, wrap yarn around hook and pull through 2 loops.

With B, work until piece measures 4 inches

Change to C and work until piece measures 6 inches.

SIDE 2

Work just as you worked SIDE 1, beginning with D, then changing to E, then to F.

FINISHING:
Assemble the two pieces into a solid as shown (this item is assembled in the same way as a baseball or tennis ball.)

Thread yarn tail into the large-eyed, blunt needle. Sew all the edges shut except one

Note: When you join a knitted or crocheted piece, you do so on the right side so you can see how the finished seam will look.

Fill ball with stuffing through the edge that is still open.

Sew last edge closed
