I've made several of these for my daughters and their friends. They just love anything pokemon related. LOL

As usual, if anything is not right, let know so I can change it :)



Size 10 crochet thread Red, white and black
size 7 and 9 steel crochet hooks
small amount of fiberfill
Sewing thread in red, white and black
3 jump rings
2 earring findings (either hooks or clips)

I recommend using the invisible decrease to reduce the gaps that regular decrease stitches can leave. Simply work your decrease stitches in the Front Loops Only, instead of through both loops.


Using red and size 7 steel hook:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc (18)

Rnd 4 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc (24)

Rnd 5-6: sc in each sc around (at end of rnd 6, join the black crochet thread) (24)

Rnd 7: sc in each sc around (join the white crochet at the end of round) (24)

Rnd 8-9: sc in each sc around (24)

Rnd 10: sc in next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (18)

Begin stuffing the ball firmly and continue as the rounds are finished.

Rnd 11: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (12)

Rnd 12: dec over next 2 sc around (6)

F/O leaving tail, finish out any stuffing needed (a yarn needle may be helpful getting the stuffing evened out on such a small piece) weave the tail thru the last round and pull tight to close.

Button base:

Using black and size 7 steel crochet hook:

Repeat first two rounds of pendant. (12)


Button top:

Using white and size 9 steel crochet hook:

Repeat first round of pendant.

Using sewing thread and needle, sew the white button top centered on the black button base. Then using black sewing thread and needle, sew the button to the pokeball centered over the black line around the middle of the pokeball (as shown)

Using red sewing thread and needle, sew one of the jump rings to the pokeball (on the red end), in the direction as show in picture so that when strung on a chain, the button will face to the front.


Using red crochet thread and size 7 steel hook:

Repeat rounds 1-3 of pendant. (18)

Rnd 4: sc in each sc around. Change to black crochet thread at end of round. (18)

Rnd 5: sc in each sc around. Change to white crochet thread at the end of round (18)

Rnd 6: sc in each sc around. (18)

Begin stuffing firmly and continue as you go along.

Rnd 7: sc in next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (12)

Rnd 8: dec over next 2 sc around (6)

F/O and finish same as pendant.

Button base:

Using black and size 7 hook:

Same as for pendant button base.

Button top:

Using size 9 crochet hook and two strands of white sewing thread held together:

6 sc in magic ring. F/O

Sew button top to base same as for pendant and sew to pokeballs same as for pendant.

Using red sewing thread, sew jump rings to the pokeballs on the red end making sure that when hooks or clips are connected to rings, that the button will face in the right direction. Use photo to help with placement.

loveloveLOVE this idea of pokeball jewelery! as soon as i gather the right thread colors im going to make myself a necklace! just curious, but whats the difference between the earring pokeball and the one for the necklace? thanks for these free patterns!

The difference is in the size of them (the pendant pokeball is a bit larger around).

It's all basically in the number of rounds completed. :D

I have absolutely adored these for a long time now. I can't wear necklaces because even the lightest chain gives me headaches, but I thought about making a pair of clip on earrings for myself! Just this past Thursday I was at the mall and I decided, what the heck, I'm 21, I can get my ears pierced. So I did. And this is the first pattern I thought of making for my new found earring obsession! So happy to finally be able to wear earrings! And pokeball ones at that! Thank you so much!

I am making these as Christmas gifts for my teenage daughter and her best friend who both love Pokemon! Thank you for this excellent pattern! They will beautifully match the Pokeball hats I made for them a year or two ago :-) ♡
