PUPPY PLAY PUFFY (C)
With the new puppy playing fetch in the house, the ball had to go. So whipped this up for those throwing and running games. Sharky likes it so much he plays by himself. Good thing it doesn't have any stuffing in it ,because it would have been shaken out by now.
About 2 ounces of worsted weight cotton
Crochet hook size G ((4.5mm)
Disk: (make 2)
Ch 5, join with a sl st to form ring
Round 1: Ch 4 to count as first dc and first ch 1; work (dc, ch 1) 15 times in ring. Join with a slipstitch to the 3rd ch of the beginning ch 4. (16 dc and 16 ch 1 spaces)
Round 2: Slipstitch into first ch 1 space. Ch 4 to count as first dc and first ch 1, work (dc, ch 1) 3 times in same ch 1 space. *(Dc, ch 1) 4 times in next ch 1 space. Repeat from * around. Join with a slipstitch in 3rd ch of the beginning ch 4. (64 dc and 64 ch 1 spaces)
Round 3: Slipstitch into first ch 1 space. Ch 3, slipstitch in next ch 1 space. Repeat from * around. Join with a slipstitch in first slipstitch of round. (64 ch 3 loops)
Loop: Ch 35; slipstitch in first ch to make a loop, slipstitch in remaining chains. Join with a slipstitch in first slipstitch.
Fasten off. Weave in ends on all three pieces..
Hold disks wrong sides together. Run the loop through the center ring. Then run loop through one of the ch 1 spaces on each disk. Run the loop through itself and pull the loop tight.
