Step 8: Hackey sack instructions

Chain 4 and join with sl to form a ring.

Round 1: Chain 1 (pic 2) and tuck tail to left of work. You will be working the tail into the crocheting as you go.

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.

Join with a slip stitch to the 1st single crochet (6 single crochet or 6sc).

Round 2: Chain 1. (Tip: Place a different colored piece of yarn before you do the next stitch.) Make 1 single crochet (sc) in the same stitch as the join. 2 sc in the next stitch (5 times). You will have 12 sc at the end of the round. Join with a slip stitch (sl) to the chain one spot.

Round 3: Chain 1. (Tip: Place a different colored piece of yarn before you do the next stitch.) 1 sc in same stitch as join. *1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch. Repeat from * around to chain 1. Join with a sl to the chain one spot.

Round 4: Chain 1. Place marker. 1 sc in same stitch as join. *1 sc in each of next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around to marker. Join with a sl to chain 1 spot.

Round 5: Chain 1. Place marker. 1 sc in same st as join. *1 sc in each of next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around to marker. Join with a sl to chain 1 spot.

Round 6: Chain 1. Place marker. 1 sc in same st as join. *1 sc in each of next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around to marker. Join with a sl to chain 1 spot.

Round 7: Chain 1. Place marker. 1 sc in same st as join. *1 sc in each of next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around to marker. Join with a sl to chain 1 spot.

Round 8: Chain 1. Place marker. 1 sc in same st as join. *1 sc in each of next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around to marker. Join with a sl to chain 1 spot.

Round 9 and middle of hackey sack: Chain 1 and place marker (you don't need it now, but if it makes you comfortable, use it). 1 sc in each st all the way around to marker. Keep making 1 sc in each st around until the ball is about 1-1/2 inches high when placed on a flat surface like a hat.

Round 10: Place marker in front of hook. *1 sc in each of next 6 sts; pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Round 11: Place marker in front of hook. *1 sc in each of next 5 sts; pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Round 12: Place marker in front of hook. *1 sc in each of next 4 sts; pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Stuff toe of thin sock with resin beads. Make sure they have enough freedom to move (sorta like a beanbag) and sew sock shut. Push into hackey sack.

Round 13: Place marker in front of hook. *1 sc in each of next 3 sts; pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Round 14: Place marker in front of hook. *1 sc in each of next 2 sts; pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Round 15: Place marker in front of hook. *Pull up a loop in next 2 sts; pull up loop and draw through 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * around to marker.

Final Round: Cut thread leaving a 12 inch tail. Draw thread through loop on hook and pull thread all the way through. Thread needle with tail and draw through final sts. Pull tight and weave in ends.

I will post the rest of the pics when I've finished the hackey sack.

Cool beans! I love it. I'm going to make myself a set for juggling...<br /> <br /> 6 ball fountain, here I come!<br />
ummmm not trying to be rude but the first chrochet class I went to the teacher said &quot;have you ever chrocheted&quot; I said &quot;no....&quot; she said&quot; well then start with a very thin yarn and a size 4.00 hook&quot;
<p>Not trying to be rude but it's C-R-O-C-H-E-T. Not chrochet...</p>
<p>Every teacher differs in their teaching style. I've learned that teaching fat yarn and big hooks usually works much, much better than starting out small and thin.</p>
What material are you using for the Hacky Sack? It doesn't look like yarn.
<p>I used very fat wool yarn.</p>
but i also just stuck my chrochet hook in backwards (lol) I still love it though 4 stars
would wool work as well?
Hey, thanks for the tut! Im hoping to crochet a cover around a tennis ball -- do you have any thoughts on the best way to do this? <br>Thanks!
Thank so much!My dad loves to hakey sack and i am going to make him one!!
IT IS HARD I DON'T GET IT HOW HOw how do i do it??? TT-TT
I have been looking to learn crochet for ages...ever since I found the creepy cute crouchet book on Amazon. I have been practising the steps and re-watching the video until I got it perfect. Only problem is my "circle" isn't looking...well...very circular! Going to try with thicker wool. Thank you very much for your tutorial. Hope to be making super cute zombies in no time! x
im lost could someone please help. step 3 confused me.
Insert your hook into the very last chain (where it's being pinched by the thumb & forefinger). Yarn over the hook, draw through the chain and the loop on the hook. You will see a nice little ring formed. Let me know if you need more help. Leigh MacD
excuse me what size needle is the number two u used is it 2.25mm or 275mm?
a US size 2 crochet hook is 2.75mm. I am including my favorite link for crochet hook converting. It is: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.yarnfwd.com/crochetconv.html">http://www.yarnfwd.com/crochetconv.html</a><br/><br/>Happy crocheting, Leigh MacD<br/>
ok kool thx and what is and where did you get the filling?
I use just about anything I can get my hands on for stuffing the soft ball (read: fiberfil). For the hackey sack, you'll have to get pretty creative. I've used lentils, pea gravel, composite plastics, recycled old bean bags (they're usually filled with plastic junk). Basically, anything that will make it feel right. Check around at a hobby & craft store also. Leigh MacD
hey is the ball steps and the hacky steps the same???
Yes, they are the same. I did the ball videos because they're easier to see the actual crocheting being completed. TLD
YES! Thank you so much. I love you hackysack (footbag everywhere else in the world) and have wanted to know how to make them for so long.
very nice 5 star from me
Thank you!!! TLD
