FO: a frisbee!

Standard

There really is no end to the things one can create with crochet!

A couple of nights ago, I was out with friends and one of them was telling me about this cool frisbee that he’d seen that seemed to be made from yarn. It was flexible, and soft enough that if it hit you it didn’t hurt, and he was wondering how to get some of his own.

Well, I suspected that it was probably crochet, and after a quick search on Ravelry decided to make one from this pattern (Ravelry link).

Let me tell you, this is the most basic pattern ever. It assumes a certain knowledge of the construction of a flat circle, and the row numbering gets screwy at the end, but it works. One thing I will have to remember for next time is that the back of the work becomes the top of the frisbee, so your ‘wrong side’ is really your ‘right side’ if you know what I mean. I have knots (gasp) and ends woven in on the top so future efforts will be made with more attention to the ‘right’ side.

If my friend likes this one, I’ll make a couple more for him. This one was made with Loops & Threads Impeccable worsted acrylic and a 4.5mm hook. I like the bright colours but the spiral construction shows the jogs where the colours change.

There are opportunities for crochet everywhere!
