Spin juggling balls


You know these specific crocheted juggling balls with split peas in it? I made them myself :). Now I can start practising juggling! I filled the balls with split peas instead of fiber fill. Fiber fill is too soft and light, split peas filling is perfect for adhesion and weight. To create the spin balls I used this pattern for the 'spin' instructions and adjust is a bit to create more juggling kind of balls. I wrote down the total amount of stitches so you can make them yourself!


R0: Chain 2, join the stitches with a slip stitch. This is the foundation of the ring.
R1: 6 sc into the second chain of the hook (6 stitches)
R2: 2 sc in each of the 6 sts of the previous round (12 stitches)
R3: *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (18 stitches)
R4: *1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (24 stitches)
R5: *1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (30 stitches)
R6: *1 sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (36 stitches)
R7: *1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (42 stitches)
R8: *1 sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st* Rep 6 times (48 stitches)
