Amigurumi Balloons is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

What better way to celebrate than with a bunch of balloons? Made in pastels like these, they’d be perfect for baby shower decorations or for Easter. Made in bolder colours, they’d brighten any occasion!

I’ve created 2 different amigurumi balloon patterns for you: the standard round balloon, and the extra-fun long balloon. Each balloon only take a few minutes to crochet, so you can whip up a bunch in no time!

Yarn: worsted weight yarn

Hook: E US/3.5mm crochet hook

Additional details: You’ll also need some sort of stick for the balloon strings, e.g. lollipop sticks, dowels, bamboo skewers

Size: round balloon approx 2.5” tall; long balloon approx 4” tall. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
