Picture of 2014 World Cup Mini Match Ball

In this Instructable I will show you how to crochet your own mini 2014 World Cup match ball. The mini ball is roughly 8cm in diameter and consists of 6 segments that are connected to form a sphere like the original ball (check out Brazuca's production video). The match ball is white and black with blue, green and orange/red trim which is what I made whereas the final match ball has gold and light green trim, in step 3, there are instructions to make either both.

Lucky Mirko! I liked the colors you used and how the black stitching sets them off. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.


Cute and clever!

Super fun, good instructions too--I could probably even make one! :)

Thanks, I remember you crocheted that lovely flower wreath, so you should have a problem.
