Balls are a very useful form to crochet for your amigurumi! They make great heads, eyes, embellishments, bodies... the imagination is the limit! =)
To crochet an amigurumi ball follow these simple rules:
1. Start with a flat circle
2. Work up
Work the same amount of rounds with no decreases or increases as the number of rounds you increased on. For example: if you started by increasing on 5 rounds, now you need to work 5 rounds without increasing or decreasing.
3. Decrease to close
Decrease evenly around on all rounds until you only have 8 to 6 stitches or less.
4. Close and finish off
Close the opening and finish off securing the yarn.
And that's it! Your ball is finished and ready to use! =D
