Free Pattern: AMIGURUMI FOOTBALL / SOCCER BALL plus two extra toy balls

AMIGURUMI FOOTBALL,MEDIUM & SMALL BALLS © 2014 Toma Creations

I’ve prepared this pattern some years ago but for some reason was constantly postponing to post it, so my resolution for 2014 was to finalise it and share it for free. Happy crochet and enjoy 🙂

Materials and Tools needed:

  1. Acrylic yarn Lane Cervinia Caprice in WHITE, BLACK and two other colours
  2. Hook size 2.5mm
  3. Polyfill
  4. Stitch marker indicating the end of each row
  5. Tapestry needle
  6. Scissors
  • Finished Size: The Football’s diameter is approximately 10cm (4in). The diameter of the Small ball is 6cm (2.4in) and of the Midium one 8cm (3.2in). If you are using a different yarn brand or type, use a hook size at least 0.5mm less than suggested on the yarn label to create tight stitches.
  • All the instructions and abbreviations are given in American (US) terms
  • Work in continuous rounds without turning unless otherwise specified in the pattern

Connect the hexagons to pentagons as indicated in the below picture, don’t forget to stuff the ball before finishing. You can connect using plain straight  stitch with tapestry need and black or white yarn or by a method that is called invisible stitch nicely presented by Vanessa Cabban which is slightly more complicated. I used the invisible stitch.

    • hi there, i’m not sure if google translated correctly your question but from what i understood you are asking regarding sizes of medium and small ball, if they are the same. they are not the same because:
      small ball: hexagons & pentagons have only 3 rows/rounds (follow the pattern up until row 3)
      medium ball: hexagons & pentagons have 4 rows/rounds (follow the pattern up until row 4)
      football ball: hexagons & pentagons have only 3 rows/rounds (follow the pattern up until row 3). you can do hexagons & pentagons of medium ball (4 rows/rounds) which will lead to a larger football and the will take more time
      hope this was helpful 🙂
