*Simple Designs* - Crocheted Balls

Crocheted balls are used in these dolls heads but also variations of the ball pattern is used in their bodies and their hair too.
Sometimes just having a simple crochet pattern available to hand can be so useful and this is why I want to post a really quick and simple pattern for a crocheted ball which can be worked up into amigurumi dolls and other toys, used in pompoms or necklaces, imagination is your only limitation!

So here it is, a simple crochet ball pattern.

1. Crochet 10sc into a magic circle, pull to tighten, sl st to join (10)
2. 2sc in ea st around (20)
3. [1sc in next st, 2sc in next st] repeat until end (30)
