Amish Puzzle Ball


Thanks for calling in.

Here's a great pattern combining the desire to make a woolly ball for a little person with a love of making crochet flowers and adding a soupçon of devilish puzzlement!  It's an Amish Puzzle Ball which I found on the Look What I Made Blog here.  The instructions are really easy to follow and you can use up lots of your leftover wool.  Fantastic!

First off you make 12 flowers . . .

. . . next you make 12 plain sections . . .

. . .  then you join a flower and a plain section together, adding stuffing, join them together into 3 rings of 4 flowercones and finally wiggle them into place!  A bit tricky!

Very effective, such a brilliant idea.  A great hit with our little cutie and very versatile.  I think I'll make another one.



  1. What a clever idea and so pretty. Great for little hands and so soft. B x

  2. I've never seen anything like this before, very clever. I'm sure it'll be a favourite toy.

    1. Great fun to make and great gun to play with!

  3. What a wonderful thing. So soft and colourful for a little one to play with:)
