I always find myself needing more juggling balls- a friend has "borrowed" mine and kicked it flat playing hackeysack, I lose one in the airport, I learn how to juggle more balls...

Though you can make do and juggle nearly anything, I really like to juggle with nice, crocheted balls. And when you make your own, you can make them exactly the fullness, dimensions, and weight you're looking for.

This tutorial also works for hackeysacks.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You need some string, a crochet hook, and something to fill the hackeysack with (more on that in the "filling" step).

I used to crochet balls like this to fill with catnip. To keep the catnip from leaking out I stuffed inside a piece of nylon stocking. My felines would chase the balls for hours.

Idea! Put LEDs in lots of them and create a hanging ball light thing!

Sweet! I've been wondering what to do with my bottle of unused soft airgunpellets, now I know. Thanks.
