    Uhm, there really is cotton thread. For crocheting. It would fit with a size 7 hook – you know, those steel ones, smaller than the (US) letter sizes? The ones normally used to crochet with THREAD, like the pattern here calls for? A size 7 steel hook is 1.5 mm.

  2. I used worsted/4 weight acrylic yarn “cause its what I had on hand” and a 6/4.0mm/H hook. The first try I followed the pattern and And it came out the size of a tennis ball which covered tennis balls could make for good toys for younger children. The second one I made I skipped the row 1 step and it came out perfect size for a hacky sack. And for every one saying they don’t understand how to read it go look up crochet abreaviations it is that simple and there good to know if you wanna keep crocheting.

  3. I’m nine years old and got a new pack of crochet hooks for christmas and more yarn. This is one of the first patterns I’ve tried and I think it’s great! I’m doing it in mid-blue, and it’s coming out great!

  4. I think you are throwing people off with the phrase “cotton thread.” I think you should specify cotton YARN. Also, while I can understand the abbreviations, a key would be nice.

    Can’t wait to try this pattern! Not even sure I have a size 7mm hook, may have to go shopping! That’s kinda big, but it will make the project go fast!

  5. Um…why is there a tiny yellow guy at the bottom of the page?

    These are Crochet Abbreviations. If you don’t know what they mean check out a Learn to crochet website.

  7. cant you do this without using abreviations??? no one can read the stupid things!

  8. I made this for my grandsons but I used 2 strands of size 10 thread-it came out a little bigger- I also went to our local thrift store and purchased a 25 cent stuffed animal and used the beads that were in side of it, this worked out great !

  9. Sorry, I forgot to leave a message. I used this pattern last year and found that it works if you use a larger hook (4 or 5) and use either fingering yarn or yarn for the knitting machine. Cotton will not work with the larger hooks because it doesn’t give enough volume.

  10. teens lkes these hacky sacks

  11. I had to alter the pattern to get it to work, adding more increase rows so it would be the right size. “Cotton thread” covers a lot of stuff. I tried size 3 and 5 crochet thread, 5 was better. Also, the bag in the photo has more rounds than the pattern.

  12. i love this web site

  13. I tried to follow the directions exactly but it just didn’t seem to work out…. it came out TINY. Maybe it was just me but I don’t know.

  14. This is a great birthday gift for nephews! Easy too!

  15. i dont understand abbreveations
