Scheepjes Glow Up - learn to crochet shpere

In my latest video, I showcase the Scheepjes Glow Up yarn up close and in more detail :) I also teach you the tricks of crocheting a sphere!


In the video, we crocheted a medium-sized sphere together, but I'll also share the description of a larger sphere with you. If the abbreviations are not clear, visit the blog post about crochet abbreviations here >>>

General information:

  • We crochet in a spiral, always on the right side of the material
  • use a crochet hook of the appropriate size for the yarn
  • A smaller sphere is made from thinner yarn, while a larger one is made from thicker yarn.

abbreviations: ( according US terms)
sc - single crochet
ch - chain
(2sc) - 2 single crochet in one stitch (increase)
sc2tog - single crochet 2 stitches together (decrease)
 [8] - stitch number at the end of the round
*1sc, (2sc)* rep 6 - repeat instructions between asterisks as many times as directed
