Little balloons crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my little balloons crochet pattern. My children are always hosting birthday party’s for their mini dolls. My daughter was desperate for some ‘party’ toys to add to her play sets. With this in mind I made a crochet bouncy castle and of course little balloons. They’ve been a great hit with the kids. As well as us using the balloons as toys they’d make great decorations for box frames and Amigurumi.

Little balloons description

The little balloons measure just 3.5cm by 4cm. They’re great for using up scraps of yarn and only need a little toy stuffing. They’re super cute and really quick to make.

How their made

The little balloons crochet pattern is beginner friendly. You’ll need to know the single crochet stitch as well as being able to increase and decrease. I used DK (weight 3) yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook to complete the project.

Gauge / Tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. If your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.
