    Crochet Water Balloons

    The hottest day on record seems like the perfect time to release my new 5 minute water balloons free crochet pattern! These small crochet water balloons are a quick and easy project, ideal for making a fast batch before the kids get home from school. The beginner friendly crochet pattern will help your children cool down this Summer, and their great fun too! Crochet water bombs are very profitable! They’re fast, easy and use up hardly any yarn.

    How to use crochet a water balloon

    The heart appliqué crochet pattern is beginner friendly. You’ll need to know all your basic crochet stitches. You’ll also need to know how to crochet into a magic ring. To make the heart appliqué I used fuchsia DK (weight 3) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. I do believe this pattern is suitable for other yarn weights too, but you would need to use the recommended hook size for your yarn. You should find this information on the packaging.
