Pokeball Set





Introduction: Pokeball Set

About: I am a 21 year old pre-nursing student who is obsessed with anything remotely cute. I'm an amigurumi artist here to share my work. free patterns, tips, and tricks. ^^

This will show you how to crochet pokeball amigurumi from the anime and video game series Pokemon.

I've been hesitant to post these patterns because when I make them over again, I've always had to adjust the pattern. For example, the stripes on the great ball usually have to be changed in length depending on how much the ball is stuffed. The love ball's heart is also not crocheted but cut out of felt and back stitched together.

I decided to post these patterns up to give you a general idea of how they were made, but you might have to adjust parts of the pattern.

Materials: (For all balls)
Size hook: G and D
Worsted weight yarn in red, white, black, blue, purple, light pink, and dark pink
Your choice of stuffing
Small bits of white and pink felt
White and pink embroidery thread
Tapestry needle

sc= single crochet
inc= increase ( 2 single crochets in 1 stitch)
dec= decrease ( single crochet 2 stiches together)
**= anything in between is repeated.
(number)= indicates the amount of stitches at the end of each round
F/O= finish off

Pokeball (red and white ball in picture):
This part is made by joining each round. To do this slip stitch into the beginning stitch then ch 1. Continue pattern accordingly.
Starting with red and G hook
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: *inc* (12)
Rnd 3: *sc, inc* (18)
Rnd 4: *inc, 2 sc* (24)
Rnd 5: *3 sc, inc* (30)
Rnd 6: *inc, 4 sc* (36)
Rnd 7-9: *sc* (36) Switch to black in the last stitch of round 9.
Rnd 10: *sc* (36) Switch to white in last stitch.
Rnd 11-12: *sc* (36)
Rnd 13: *dec, 4 sc* (30) Begin to stuff at the end of this round and continue stuffing to the end.
Rnd 14: *3 sc, dec* (24)
Rnd 15: *dec, 2 sc* (18)
Rnd 16: * sc, dec* (12)
Rnd 17: *dec* (6)
F/O and weave in ends.

Button: With D hook. Worked in rounds. Do not join.
Using black yarn-
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: *inc* (12)
F/O leaving tail.

Using white yarn-
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
F/O leaving tail.

-Using the white button's tail, sew the white button to the black button.
-Using the black button's tail, sew the button onto the back stripe of the pokeball.

Master Ball (purple and white ball with pink spots):
Follow the pattern for the pokeball, but exchange the red yarn for purple.

"Spots" Worked in rounds with G hook. Do not join: Make 2
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: *inc* (12)
Rnd 3: *sc, inc* (18)
Rnd 4: *sc* (18)
F/O leaving tail.

-Sew the spots on each side of the masterball. You may stuff lightly, but the extra round of sc should make the spots puff up on its own.
- I recommend embroidering on the "M" with white embroidery thread for more durability, but I cut out an "M" from white felt and glued it onto the the masterball between the 2 spots and above the button.
Great Ball (blue and white ball with red stripes):
Follow the pattern for the pokeball, but exchange the red yarn for blue.

Stripes: In red with G hook. Make 2
Ch 15
Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc across (14)
Row 2: ch1, turn, sc across (14)
F/O leaving tail.

-Sew stripes to each side of the great ball with the button inbetween.
Love Ball (pink and white ball with heart):
Follow the pattern for the pokeball, but exchange the red yarn for purple. Do not sew the button to the ball yet.

-Cut out a heart using white felt, and cut a smaller heart using pink felt.
-Attach the pink heart to the white heart whichever way you choose. I sewed them together using a back stitch.
-Embroider a white line down the center of the hearts with white yarn or embroidery thread.
-Attach heart to the love ball whichever way you choose. I glued mine on with a hot glue gun. Make sure the tip of the heart is touching the center black stripe.
-Sew the button to the center of the love ball and on top of the heart's tip.

That's it! I hope these guide lines help you. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Hello, quick question, are the terms used UK or US please? :) thank you in advance

Thank you! This pattern worked really well!

How big are yours and what size wool did you use

I want to make these with double knit wool how big will they turn out

After you sc 6 in the magic circle and the slip stitch chain one does that count as the first stitch for 12 sc on the 2nd row

I am gonna make this for some of my co-workers as they are on the Pokeman Go craze...lol

To make the other balls I take it you just change the colors where needed?

What a wonderful set! Thank you! so much for sharing the patterns ^^ I did share a link to your post in a facebook crochet group I am part of (giving you full credit of course) to spread the news of how awesome your patterns are :-) Keep up the good work!

If you could, you should add more pictures of the process of making these. The instructions you gave are great, but for the crochet-impaired (like me :P ), a few pictures on how to make them make a world of difference. :)
