NOTE: I get a lot of questions about getting this globe into the perfectly spherical shape! The increases are oddly spaced out to expand at the right rate to make a perfect sphere once FULLY STUFFED. I recommend cutting your ends instead of carrying them and then stuffing very very firmly in order to get that perfectly round shape.

This pattern includes written instructions to create your very own globe. The globe is worked in the round, using only single crochet, increases, and decreases. Color changes are made using the invisible decrease technique.

The globe pictured was made using worsted weight yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook.
The final product is around 7 inches in diameter depending on your yarn and hook size.
The pattern includes a picture tutorial for how to change colors neatly.
