No, I didn’t blow off my Saturday by playing Pokemon. #YesIDid

Public Service Announcement: Pokemon season 1 is on Netflix. The theme tune is pulling me back into the 90’s! #GottaCatchEmAll

When they first announced Pokemon Go, I was VERY. EXCITED.
Am I the only one who saw the #PokemonGo trailer and almost started crying?

And then I was devastated.
This is as far as I can get playing Pokemon Go. pic.twitter.com/L1iQ3pVklT

And then, I made a (possibly bad? Nah.) purchase.
No, YOU just bought a new phone because your phone won’t run Pokemon Go. *shifty eyes*

And so I’ve walked about 45km since this all started. I’ve hatched cool things. I’ve caught 3 billion Pidgeys and 42 trillion Rattatas. I also have a Pokestop that I can reach from the comfort of my couch. Life is good.
So, I wanted to make a Pokeball to toss at the dog, who is a brat 99.9% of the time and refuses to play fetch. Occasionally she cuddles. But it’s rare. I think she’s a cat.
Bea the new puppy, however, just wanted to eat the Pokeball, so I didn’t experiment with trying to catch her with a Pokeball. I think Mollie needs a Master Ball.
-4mm (US G-6) hook
-Red, white, and black aran/worsted weight yarn
-One white button
-Stuffing (I used old cloth I had hanging around)
Using a magic ring and red yarn, do 6sc for the first round, and tighten the magic ring.
Round 2: 2sc into every stitch (12)
Round 3: *1 sc, 2sc into the next stitch* repeat until end (18)
Round 4: *2sc, 2sc into next stitch* repeat until end (24)
Round 5: *3sc, 2sc into next stitch* repeat until end (30)
Round 6: *4sc, 2sc into next stitch* repeat until end (36)
Round 7-9: sc into every stitch. On the last stitch of round 9, change to black yarn.
Round 10: sc into every stitch. On the last stitch of the round, change to white yarn.
Round 11-13: sc into every stitch
Round 14: *4sc, decrease* repeat until end (30)
Round 15: *3sc, decrease* repeat until end (24) Start stuffing your Pokeball now!
Round 16: *2sc, decrease* repeat until end (18)
Round 17: *1sc, decrease* repeat until end (12)
Round 18: *decrease around* (6)
Sew in ends and tighten bottom hole. Sew on the button, and voila! One Pokeball!
