Crocheted Hacky Sack Pattern

Hacky Sacks are quick and easy to crochet. But why just make one when a 1.75 skein of sock yarn is enough to make 5 or 6?

Materials

  • Lightweight sock yarn in cool colors
  • Size 2 crochet hook
  • Small organza bag
  • rice (uncooked)

Directions


Chain 4. Join with a slips stitch to the first chain to form a loop. Chain 1.


Round 1: 6 sc in loop. From this point it is easier to crochet in a continuous spiral than in actual rounds. Your next stitch will be in the first sc and just keep working around and around.
Round 2: *2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 12 sc)
Round 3: *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 18 sc)
Round 4: *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 24 sc)
Round 5: *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 30 sc)
Round 6: *sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 36 sc)
Round 7: *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 42 sc)
Round 8: *sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc* 6 times (for a total of 48 sc)


Now just sc in each sc around until your word measures about 2 inches from the center of your ch 4 loop. Then, it's time to start decreasing around your work.

Round 9: *sc in next 6 sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, (there are 3 loops on the hook), yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 42 stitches)
Round 10: *sc in next 5 sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 36 stitches)
Round 11:  *sc in next 4 sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 30 stitches)


Let's fill it up! Set the small organza bag into the hacky sack, fill it with rice, and tightly tie it shut, or even better, stitch it shut. Make sure not to fill the bag too much. You want there to be a little give.

Round 12:  *sc in next 3 sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 24 stitches)
Round 13: *sc in next 2 sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 18 stitches)
Round 14:  *sc in next sc, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 6 times (for a total of 12 stitches)
Round 15:  *insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all three loops* 8 times or until the hole at the top is closed.


Cut yarn leaving a 6-12 inch tail. Pull yarn through the last loop to secure it. Carefully weave the tail into the last round or pull it to the inside of the hacky sack and trim it.

Have fun with one or make a couple more so you can impress your kids with your awesome juggling skills. It's great to surprise them with odd talents they don't suspect you have. My tutorial on juggling will have to wait for another day, though :)
