free pattern: amigurumi balloons

What better way to celebrate than with a bunch of balloons? Made in pastels like these, they’d be perfect for baby shower decorations or for Easter. Made in bolder colours, they’d brighten any occasion!

(I certainly want to celebrate after being involved in a minor car crash yesterday: it could have been so much worse, but luckily nobody was injured. I wasn’t at fault, so my insurance premiums won’t be affected; I just need to take the car in to be fixed soon.)

I’ve created 2 different amigurumi balloon patterns for you: the standard round balloon, and the extra-fun long balloon. Each balloon only take a few minutes to crochet, so you can whip up a bunch in no time!

The balloons pattern is free for you to use. If you’d like to thank me with a donation, you’ll get a handy printable PDF version of the pattern as a thank you 🙂

      Ellen, take a look at Crochet Pattern Central – if you type balloon into the search box you’ll get a list of free balloon crochet patterns. Maybe one of those will be what you’re looking for!

    OH, my gosh! I JUST saw your post! So glad you are okay! Hope your car is not too bad. Was it due to snow or slippery roads?
    These balloons are fantastic! What a great idea for a quick gift!

      That’s the funny thing: it snowed a lot yesterday afternoon, but the accident was yesterday morning, when the roads were clear and dry! Some kids stepped out into the road, I braked to avoid hitting them, and the car behind me was either driving too fast or too close, or not paying attention, and drove into the back of me…
