Pokeball | Free Crochet Pattern

These are just too fun and too fast not to share. 🙂  I have two little boys who are totally obsessed with Pokemon.  Considering the lengthy amount of time I spent playing the game on my original grey box Gameboy, I was thrilled when they wanted me to make them “throwable” Pokeballs that they could battle with.  Now, my living room echoes with “Go Pikachu!” on a regular basis, and I had a really good time creating the plethora of pokeballs now being tossed around my house.

I made these rather small.  They are a good handful for a little boy, and a little bigger than a tennis ball when stuffed full.
