26 Pokeballs for a 78 hour Pokemon Marathon!
I used these pokeballs as prizes for a charity videogame marathon we had, and they were a HUGE success. They are easy to make, but if done right, they can look great!

  • Step 1

    Get all of your crochet gear together! For this, I primarily used size 5 hooks, but for balls that required larger yarn, I used size 6.

  • Step 2

    To make most of the balls, I followed this general pattern, inspired by Wolfdreamer:
    1) Crochet 6 in magic circle
    2) Inc in each stitch
    3) Inc 1, sc 1
    4) Inc 1, sc 2
    5) Inc 1, sc 3
    6) Inc 1, sc 4
    7) Inc 1, sc 5
    If the ball needs to be bigger, I would continue with inc 1, sc 6, but generally I didn't need to.
    8) Sc in all
    9) Sc in all; change color at end of round
    10) sc in all
    11) sc in all; change color at end of round
    12) sc in all
    13) sc in all
    14) sc 5, dec 1
    15) sc 4, dec 1
    16) sc 3, dec 1
    I would start stuffing here if you hadn't already started.
    17) sc 2, dec 1
    18) sc 1, dec 1
    19) continue to dec and tie off.
    20) sew in all loose ends of yarn

  • Step 3

    At this point, you can do any felt work or additions you need to. To make the center button of the ball, I followed this general pattern:
    1) Crochet 4 in magic circle; change color when using a slip stitch to complete the circle
    2) Inc 1 in all stitches
    3) Finish with a slip stitch and tie off

  • Step 4

    Now you have a pokeball! :D
