INSTRUCTIONS

While the instructions stipulate an 8 cm ball, feel free to create a ball of any size you desire. Begin by chaining x stitches (I used 34 for my yarn) and slip stitch the first chain to form a ring.

R1: chain 1 and single crochet in each chain, slip stitch in the first single crochet. (34)

R2: chain 1, single crochet in the 1st stitch, *double crochet in the next stitch, single crochet in the next* repeat the ** ending with double crochet in the last stitch and slip stitch in the 1st single crochet.

R3: chain 1, double crochet in the 1st stitch, *single crochet in the next double crochet, double crochet in the next single crochet* repeat the ** ending with single crochet in the last stitch and slip stitch in the 1st double crochet.

R4: chain 1, single crochet in the 1st stitch, *double crochet in the next single crochet, single crochet in the next double crochet*, repeat the ** ending with double crochet in the last stitch and slip stitch in the 1st single crochet.

Repeat R3 and R4, till you have the length you need.

Once you reach the desired length, leave a very long tail for sewing and cut the yarn.

With the needle pass the yarn through each loop, one on the outside and one on the inside. Once you've made the round, pull the yarn to close the hole and secure it. Pass the remaining yarn through the stitches to reach the other side. Repeat the same process and close the 2nd hole as well. Sew it to secure, and make a big loop to hang it and you're done!
