I noticed when I was out shopping that grass themed items seem to be in this season. I saw some cute plastic grass balls and thought they'd be pretty awesome used as a vase filler, but even cuter in a crochet version! So..if you crochet, I've written up the pattern for you to make some for yourself, and if you don't I've added a few to my shop!
Enjoy! I'd love to see pictures if you make your own. You can share photos on my Facebook page, Ravelry group or use the tag #prochetpatterns on Instagram.
Design by: Elizabeth Ann Smith
Skill Level: Advanced beginner (only because working with Fun Fur can take some practice)
- Crochet Hook US H/8 (5.00mm)
- Yarn needle
- Stitch marker (optional)
- Red Heart Super Saver: Spring Green
- Lion Brand: Fun Fur
- Fiber fill stuffing
Gauge: Gauge isn’t essential for this project, just make sure your stitches aren’t too loose, you don’t want the fiberfill sticking out.
- st= stitch
- ch= chain
- sl st= slip stitch
- sc= single crochet
- sc2tog= single crochet two stitches together (single crochet decrease)
- The whole piece is worked holding 2 strands together; 1 of each: Fun Fur and Red Heart Super Saver.
- Normally, as you work you would flip the piece so the right side is facing out, I have found that more fur sticks out on the wrong side, so (since you can’t see the stitches anyway) you will leave the wrong side facing out.
Holding 1 strand of each, start with a magic ring or ch 3 and sl st to form right.
Round 1: work 6 sc into ring (if using a magic right, pull end to close ring).
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sc)
Round 3: *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc; repeat from * around. (18 sc)
Round 4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around. (24 sc)
Round 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around. (30 sc)
Round 6-10: sc in each sc around. (30 sc)
Round 11: *sc2tog, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around. (24 sc)
Round 12: *sc2tog, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around. (18 sc)
Begin adding fiberfill here and continue stuffing as work progresses.
Round 13: *sc2tog, sc in next sc; repeat from * around. (12 sc)
Round 14: sc2tog around.
Fasten off leaving a long tail. Use the tail to thread thru the final 6 stitches to close. Weave in all ends.
You can use your crochet hook or yarn needle and run it across the ball to bring out and fluff out the fur.
