Learn how to crochet a ball or a hackey sack.

I do the tutorial with fat yarn and a size N crochet hook for better visability. It is also a very good idea for beginners to start out with thicker yarn and a larger hook so they can practice before going down to the skinnier threads and crochet hooks.

The hackey sack can be made using the pattern I will provide here, 1 or more balls of #3 crochet thread, and a size 2 crochet hook.

Keeping the tail to the left and on the outer area of ring, insert hook into center of the ring (as pictured in view 1). Draw up a loop and pull it through the ring(pic 3). There are now 2 loops on the hook (pic 4).

Draw up a loop and pull it through both loops on hook (pic 5); one single crochet in the ring complete. Make 5 more single crochet in the ring.
