My child loves soccer but i don’t allow him to play with his regular ball inside the house. I created this pattern to allow for a “softer” option for him to play with inside.

I prefer not to use a gauge if i can avoid it. This pattern will result in the size that works with your gauge.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for this particular picture, but i have created the same ball using Cotton yarns and other types of yarns with the same success. You will need about one skein each of two different colors to complete the pattern as shown. But, there is always room for imagination and improvement to personalize this as you wish!

This pattern is what i would call a beginner pattern. This is because the pattern uses only the Slip Stitch and Single Crochet.

It also helps with practicing skills such as magic circle, creating basic hexagon and pentagon shapes and learning how to join fewer parts than say an afghan would require!
