A super cute crochet Luna P Ball from Sailor Moon!
This is by far the most involved thing I’ve ever attempted to crochet, especially as far as amigurumi is concerned. I’ve never used this many hooks or colors of yarn and it was a lot to keep track of. Personally if I made it again I would probably try to do more with less and get a more uniform look. I feel like there’s a lot more variety to the shapes than there needs to be. It’s also very difficult to translate an idea like the Luna Ball to crochet. Spheres in general are just hard to work with and I bow down to the skill of those that manage to make those perfectly round crocheted goodies. I aspire to be you.

    Row 29) (dec, 1) repeat () around (12) *Fill your sphere with fiberfill

    Row 30) 4 scdec. Fasten off. Weave loose end through each stitch in the opening. Pull tightly to close.

    Ears (make 2):

    Using black yarn and a size E hook ch 9 leaving a long tail to sew to head later

    Row 1) Hdc in second ch from hook and all across (8)

    Row 2) ch 1, turn, 3 hdc, hdc2tog, 3 hdc (7)

    Row 3) ch 1, turn, 2 hdc, 2 hdc2tog, 1 hdc (5)

    Row 4) ch 1, turn, hdc, 2 hdc2tog, hdc (4)

    Row 5) ch 1, turn, 2 hdc2tog (2)

    Row 6) ch 1, turn, 2 hdc2tog (1) Fasten off and weave in ends

    *Repeat this process in pink with a slightly smaller hook if you would like, that would make it look more authentic to the Luna P ball in the anime and you can sew it to the inside of the ear so the black will overshadow it a bit and give it a black border.

    Eyes:

    Using white yarn and a F hook (I believe, but you should probably make them a bit smaller) ch 5

    Row 1) Dc in second ch from the hook and continue across (4)

    Row 2) Ch 2, 2 dc in each stitch across (8) break off and leave a long tail to sew to head

    Iris:

    Using a size F crochet hook make a magic circle with your blue crochet thread and dc into it 10 times. Break off leaving a long tail to sew onto the eye.

    Crescent Moon:

    I followed this pattern for the crescent moon, but I cut it by half (starting with ch 6 instead of ch 12) and used yellow embroidery thread. I used a size D crochet hook, but you can use smaller if you prefer.

    Construction:

    Sew your irises as close to the middle of your eyes as you can get, then sew them to the head. Sew the ears to the top of the sphere, assuming that you aren’t making the pink interior, otherwise sew those together first and then sew them to the head. Sew on the mouth and the crescent moon shape and you’re done.

    *I tried adding the mouth that they have on the show but no matter what I did it made it look like a weird voodoo doll, so I skipped it all together.

Aww thanks! It was a bit ambitious and did come out a tad more voodoo doll worthy than I might have liked but I love Sailor Moon so it was a total blast to do! Love
