It’s been a while since I did any crocheting but I rediscovered it when my daughter was born. Pretty much all she wanted to do was eat and sleep, and my lap was the only bed she wanted to sleep in during day time. In the beginning it was quite relaxing to sit and watch Netflix all day long. However, after watching good TV shows, bad TV shows, good movies, good B-movies (Sharknado 1, 2 and 3 :)) and bad movies, I wanted to do something more creative with my time. The end result was this amish puzzle ball!
It’s a great baby toy since it’s so easy for them to hold (and eat if you ask my daughter). You can also make it in many different colour to make it even more fun and interesting. An extra feature that the baby might like when it gets older is that you can actually disassemble it into 3 parts! There are a lot of patterns where you can’t take the ball apart but that kind of defeats the purpose if you ask me…
The amish puzzle ball made with a cotton yarn that called for a 4½mm hook but I used a 2,5mm hook to make it tighter. This resulted in a ball with a diameter of ~9,5cm. The free pattern is available here at Look at what I made – Crochet Amish Puzzle Ball
