ok, so i have this cousin who really likes the game katamari damacy. so i decided to make him a katamari that really picks stuff up. so i crocheted around a ball and then i put the little bobblys on it and put magnets inside the bobblys. and it picks up metal stuff. so here are pictures


and with stuff on it


i was going to make the prince, but then i didn't have enough time. it was a christmas present so it was late enough. haha

WOW, that's cool. I love the look of it. And then the fact that it picks things up with the magnets.. SO clever.

I have no idea what game you speak of, but the katamari is bloody cool. Great colours, too.

i kind of cheated because i didn't really crochet the entire ball. well. i guess. i dunno. let me explain.

my mom knew i was planning on making this so she was bored one day and she started crocheting around this ball. like, a stress ball. so she started like you would a regular circle with a starting loop and such. then you double those stiches on the next row. and then you just increase some every row untill you get the desired diameter then you decrease every row. so i just followed the ball for my demension. using the ball was a good was you to get the right dimensions if you've never made a succesful circle, which i have never done. so yeah. then i used embroidery floss for the bobblys. with the original magnet i was using they didn't work through yarn and so i decided to use a different material. and i decided on embroidery floss and i used a rediculously tiny hook. like, crazy tiny. for lace and stuff. and i just made half circles with it. i think my original circle was nine stiches. and then i doubled the stiches in the first row. and then increased every three or something for the third row. then the last two didn't increase at all. then i sewed them onto the ball with the magnet inside. it was kind of weird trying to crochet with a metal hook with a magnet inside of it bobbly thing.

its not much of a tutorial, but i don't have the katamari anymore, i gave it to my cousin and i dont' really remember what exactly i did but thats the general idea of it.
