This crochet ball/ cube is made with individual spikes that are crocheted flat and then joined to create a squarish shape. The spikes are then assembled into larger sections and finally sewn together and stuffed. The final size will be around 9 inches around.
Gauge and pattern are worked with worsted weight yarn held double. This can be substituted for a bulky weight yarn as well!
As with all toys and blankets and per the warnings of the medical community, keep out of cribs and away from babies when sleeping or unsupervised when suffocation can occur.
