Hacky Sack Crochet Pattern


















Hacky Sack
regular size
Supplies:
100% cotton yarn worsted weight
Size e hook
plastic, black beans, or another filling substance.  (about 60-80 grams)
note: this pattern is worked in the rounds, this means you will need to use a stitch marker to keep track of the rows.  you do not attach and turn as in working with rows.  (I use the casting on tail as my stitch marker, photo below)
it is helpful to move the st marker after every increasing row
instructions:
Ch 2
rnd 1: sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook (6 st)
rnd 2: sc 2 in next st, sc 2 in every st around (12 st)
rnd 3: *sc 1 in next st, sc 2 in next st* repeat *to* around (18 st)














Rnd 4: *sc 1 in next 2 st, sc 2 in next st* repeat *to* around (24 st)

sew closed by going through the back loops only.  Go through back loop, across opening to st directly across from starting point, repeat this process until opening has been fully closed.  tie off tightly and hide tail inside of ball.
