Great ball Pokeball free crochet amigurumi tutorial and pattern - Superball Pokeball modèle gratuit et tutorial de crochet amigurumi
Good trainers will tell you : when you wanna catch them all, you never have too many pokeballs !
Last time I published a step-by-step free pattern for the basic Pokeball : here is the link
I assume that, as motivated trainer, you've made some progress since then, so you should be ready to crochet the Great Ball !
The Great Ball (スーパーボール Super Ball) is a type of Poké Ball that has a blue top and a white bottom, as well as the horizontal black ring and two red accents. It has a 50% higher chance to successfully catch a Pokemon than that of a regular Poké Ball. (source : Pokepedia)
This means to me that there's 50% higher chance that you'd like to crochet it... ;)
So here is the pattern, have fun !
the Great Ball is crocheted as the Pokeball, except for the color : use blue yarn instead of red
If help needed, you can refer to previous Pokeball photo tutorial : HERE
