SOFT TOYS FOR KIDS
BALLS – SOFT TOYS FOR KIDS
A friend’s daughter teaches at the +Delhi Waldorf school. As this young girl was talking about the school philosophies, and the toys that they use with the children, I remembered seeing these superb toys online and on my *to-do* list and told her I’d love to make something for her. J
These are the Crochet Amish Puzzle balls designed by the superbly talented Dedri Uys. Thank you so much for this awesome free pattern.
So here are two of her creations.
Materials used : Today I’ve used our lovely Indian Vardhaman millennium acrylic yarn , 4 mm crochet hook
Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg
PATTERN 1 : LEMON BALL
No real change here except change in colour, which is why it’s not a pumpkin, but a lemon.. but the possibilities are endless and I’m sure to return to try some of the ideas whizzing in my head soon.

PATTERN 2 : FLOWER BALL
Yet again, our Vardhaman Millennium worked well, but I’d say Laura knitting cotton also deserves a try.

I have a few more toys made that you may want to take a look at.
The cat toys are not animal specific.. these could make really cute baby rattles as well.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
