PokeBall Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

In 1995 the original Pokemon games were released and took the world by storm. For the few of you who don’t know what Pokemon is, you basically fight and capture Pokemon in order to beat other trainers. While I am not as big of fan of Pokemon as I used to be, I still remember receiving my first Pokemon game (Pokemon Yellow) for Christmas and playing it non-stop. I was a huge Pokemon fan until around generation 3 when I started to lose some interest in the franchise.

This pattern creates a PokeBall that is around 5-6 inches in diameter. This PokeBall pattern should work well as a first amigurumi project for beginners. The pattern uses most of the basic stitches and yet is quite straight forward since you are basically making a ball.

What You Need to Know

Difficulty: Easy

In order to follow the PokeBall pattern you need to know how to do the following stitches:

What You Need

Pattern

To create the PokeBall you will need to create two pieces.

Ball

Start with red yarn.

Round 1: CH X 2

Round 2: SC X 6 in the first CH stitch (6 stitches)

Round 3: Inc X 6 (12 stitches)

Round 4: |Inc, SC| X 6 (18 stitches)

Round 5: |SC, Inc, SC| X 6 (24 stitches)

Round 6: |SC X 2, Inc, SC| X 6 (30 stitches)

Round 7: |SC X 2, Inc, SC X 2| X 6 (36 stitches)

Round 8: |SC X 3, Inc, SC X 2| X 6 (42 stitches)

Round 9: |SC X 3, Inc, SC X3| X 6 (48 stitches)

Rounds 10-14: SC X 48 (48 stitches)

Switch to the black yarn and cut the red yarn.

Rounds 15-17: SC X 48 (48 stitches)

Switch to the white yarn and cut the black yarn.

Rounds 18-22: SC X 48 (48 stitches)

Round 23: |SC X 3, Dec, SC X3| X 6 (42 stitches)

Round 24: |SC X 3, Dec, SC X2| X 6 (36 stitches)

Round 25: |SC X 2, Dec, SC X 2| X 6 (30 stitches)

Round 26: |SC X 2, Dec, SC| X 6 (24 stitches)

Round 27: |SC, Dec, SC| X 6 (18 stitches)

Round 28: |Dec, SC| X 6 (12 stitches)

Round 29: Dec X 6 (6 stitches)

Cut the white yarn leaving some yarn to sew up the bottom of the PokeBall. Fasten off and fill the PokeBall with the desired amount of stuffing. Sew up the bottom of the ball.

Button

Start with white yarn.

Round 1: CH X 2 (2 stitches)

Round 2: SC X 6 in the first CH stitch (6 stitches)

Round 3: Inc X 6 (12 stitches)

Switch to the black yarn and cut the white yarn.

Round 4: SC X 12 (12 stitches)

Round 5: SL (1 stitch)

Cut the black yarn leaving enough to sew the button to the PokeBall. When sewing the button to the PokeBall place it in the middle of the ball. I would recommend sewing it over the area where you switched from red to black and from black to white to cover up where the colors change.

Note: This pattern makes a pretty large PokeBall (5-6 inch diameter). If you would like to make a smaller PokeBall you can modify the pattern above to eliminate some of the rounds. I would recommend eliminating rounds 7-9, changing rounds 10-20 to 36 stitches instead of 48 stitches, and eliminating rounds 21-23.
