Whenever I have to crochet a sphere, I always pull out the tried and true method: increase by the same number of stitches each row for a little while, work the rows even for the middle bit, then decrease by the same number of stitches each row until you're finished. Once it's stuffed, this makes a decent sphere! Plus, it's a super easy pattern to remember. But it got me to thinking, how would I go about making an ideal sphere?
The tutorial has been removed from here and a link added where you can order it in book form. This is because I have contracted to do so with Annie's Attic. I hope this makes it easier for my readers that they can carry a pattern with them and carry that with them and not have to sit in front of their computer screen to work on this project. The book is still on Amazon and is called Learn to do Yo-yo crochet.

I’ve been thinking a lot about things I used to make when I was young. I wanted to update some of those gifts to make them more modern and current. In particular, I kept thinking about the potholders my Grandmother taught me to make. Actually, they are the first thing I ever learned to make, so it seems apropos to have it be my first posted pattern. Let me tell you, these potholders rock!
