Ball and Chain Pattern

Ball and Chain Pattern

Project Details

Project Description


You will need –

Dk yarn – I used James C Brett Cotton On in Cream

1.5 cm felt balls

4 mm crochet hook

Sewing needle and thread


These instructions use US crochet terms and standard crochet abbreviations.


  1. Chain 8 & join into a circle.

  2. Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), 19 dc into circle. Join with a sl st to top of ch 3. (20 sts)

  3. *(Ch 3 (counts as dc), ch 2, dc) in 1st st, (dc, hdc) in next st, sc, ch 1, sc, (hdc, dc) in next st; rep from * around 3 times more substituting dc for 1st ch 3.

  4. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st. Fasten off.


A felt ball should fit into the centre hole quite snugly, and to keep it secure take a needle and sewing thread and join to the outer hole.

Doing a kind of mattress stitch take alternate stitches through the felt ball and outer ring all around the ball. Fasten off securely. The stitches should be invisible. Join to make a bag, or cushion or even perhaps a scarf!
