I was invited to a Battle Royale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Royale) themed party for hallowe'en and we were to bring our own weapons for our battle royale. Unfortunately my friends and I were all too busy to really arrange it, so we postponed it.
But I already had an idea for the weapon that I would bring so I went ahead and made it anyways.
...And here it is...



I crocheted the ball and chain out of 100% acrylic Bernat yarn using 5.5mm crochet hook.
The handle is made from wood.
Some people has asked why I didn't crochet the handle. My explaination is that a crocheted and stuffed handle would be kind of floppy and you really need a good solid handle to maximize its full swinging potenial.

That is soooo cool!  I love it.  In my current Katamari obsession I wanted it to be a katamari ball on  the end...I have issues.
