Crochet Stress Balls
I find stress balls to be very useful. Not only are they good for relieving stress/tension they are also handy for people that fidget or need to be doing something with their hands 24/7. Both owning one of these stress balls and making them have a similar effect.
These stress balls can also be used as juggling balls or toys for children. They can be used to teach children hand eye coordination or even colours. Different sizes, colours and patterns can make them stimulating for children’s minds. I have made several as gifts for people, namely both my brothers, they enjoy playing with them together.
I have created three crochet patterns for these; the “Lemon Stress Ball, “the “Pear Stress Ball and the “Lychee Stress Ball”. They are all included in one download, the download also includes both UK and US versions (pages 1-5 are the UK version and 6-10 are the US version).
The “Lemon Stress Ball” was my first design. I made it to fit comfortably in my hand. I usually keep this one in my bag so that I always have it with me. I used a bright yellow DK Stylecraft yarn and a 3.5mm hook. As it’s so small and made up of dc stitches, it is extremely easy to make in no time at all.
I came up with the “Pear Stress Ball” by playing with increase and decrease stitches with leftover scraps of green yarn. Once I started to fill it with stuffing I realised it kind of looked like a pear, so I added the stalk and leaf to complete it. The blend of stitches gives it an interesting texture that is visible to the eye.
As I like working with chunky yarns, I decided to try and make a slightly more spherical version that is also a little bigger than a tennis ball; the “Lychee Stress Ball”. It is named the “Lychee” because the texture the colours are similar to that of the Lychee fruit. This is definitely the better version to be used as a toy e.g. juggling balls. It’s ideal for heavy duty use and will hold its shape for longer.
Be sure to share your makes on social media with the hashtag #bobbleandknit.
May all your creative wishes come true…
I hope this brings you #creativejoyandinspiration.
