I’ve seen these crochet water balloons on several sites and wanted to make some for Turtle. The pattern is from Left in Knots and there’s also a video tutorial. The pattern is really super easy.
As for the yarn, I’m not used to big hooks or super bulky yarn but oh my goodness its incredibly soft and squishy. The pattern calls for 9.00mm/N hook. My N hook is a 10mm which is the bigger balloon. I then decided to try a K hook which I like a little better for Turtle since he’s only 4. We haven’t gotten to play with them yet but I almost can’t keep the surprise from him anymore because I want to know if they’ll work. I bought 2 skeins of the Bernat Blanket and will update this post as to how many balloons I get.
Are you having a fun-filled summer using your yarn and hooks?
