I love this pattern, and with a nearly 8 inch circumference, the Extra Small size is perfect for a custom made Hacky Sack. I live in a small university town, near a large university town, and Im always amazed to see the incoming students still kicking a Hacky Sack around. I use poly beads instead of fiberfil due to the needed weight. It would be nice to offer some in their school colors!

The embroidery colors are so pretty, I love it! Each ball is worked in the round and then sealed off at the end. You then get a step by step guide on how to do the cross stitch. For adults as well as kids these are great fidgets, as I like to call them. Oh, if you sign up for her mailing list you qualify for a free pattern. Value of up to $15!

What a great gift these Simple As Can Be Crochet Balls will be for my 1 year old grand daughter! She can play with them without hurting anything or herself. After reading the written pattern I so have to make these. I love the cross stitches used to make the colors around the balls. So easy and there are pictures to show how to do it. I'll be making all the sizes and may even make a extra set of the larger ones for our dog. Putting a jingle bell inside will also be a good idea..I can't wait! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
