Pokemon Pokeball Crochet Pattern

Pokemon Pokeball Crochet Pattern

Today I’m going to share with you my pattern for my pokeballs. I’m going to write out the pattern and hopefully the next time I make one, I plan on taking pictures of the process. I do not work in the round like some people might when making something like this. I think it looks more seamless that way, but that’s just my option.

Materials Needed:

  • Worst Weight Yarn in White, Black, and Red. (I just used Red Heart Super Saver)
  • A few ounces of Polyfil
  • Size 4.0 crochet hook
  • Yarn needle

 

First I start with making the button.

Starting with white Yarn.

Start with a magic circle. ch 1, 7 sc in the round, FO leaving a long tail. I usually just cut off the tail from the magic circle because typically it’s able to hold it’s own.

With Black Yarn:

Start with the magic circle. ch 1, 7 sc in the circle, sl st to ch 1

Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc, slst to ch 1, FO leaving a long tail.

 

Sew white circle on to the black circle and sit aside.

 

Now for the ball!

 

Starting with the red yarn.

Round 1: Start with the magic circle, ch 1, 6 sc in the circle, sl st into ch 1. (6)

Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each sc, sl st into ch 1 (12)

Round 3: ch 1, *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* around, sl st into ch 1 (18)

Round 4: ch 1, *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around sl st into ch 1 (24)

Round 5: ch 1, *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around sl st into ch 1 (30)

Round 6: ch 1, *sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around, sl st into ch 1 (36)

Round 7: ch 1, *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around, sl st into ch 1 (42)

Round 8: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st into ch 1 (42)

Round 9: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st into ch 1, FO (42)

 

Change to black yarn

Round 10 and 11: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st into ch 1, FO (42)

 

Change to white yarn

Round 12 and 13: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st into ch 1 (42)

Round 14: ch 1, *sc in next 5 sc, dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1 (36)

Round 15: ch 1, *sc in next 4 sc, dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1 (30)

 

This is when I sew in the button, usually right on the seam.

 

Round 16: ch 1, *sc in next 3 sc, dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1 (24)

Round 17: ch 1, *sc in next 2 sc, dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1 (18)

Round 18: ch 1, *sc in next st, dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1 (12)

 

This is where I begin stuffing my pokeball. I like to make my pokeballs pretty firm but it’s up to you how firm or soft you’d like your pokeball to be.

 

Round 19: ch 1, *dec in next 2 st* around, sl st into ch 1, FO leaving a long tail (6)

 

I use the tail to sew the top of the pokeball closed.

 

Now if you don’t want to make your own pokeball, I actually have a listing on Etsy that you can own your own without going through all the work of making one!
