💊 Chill Pill Stress Ball Free Pattern

I designed these in October of 2020, after going through several rough patches due to postpartum and the pandemic. I wanted to create an obvious nod to mental health, and something that would hopefully make people smile. It is my most popular pattern to date. ❤


CHILL PILL STRESS BALL

Starting with the color you will be putting the face on, which is the right side of the pill.

R1: ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook (6)

R2: inc in each st (*6 times; 12)

R3: sc, inc (*6 times; 18)

R4: sc 2, inc (*6 times; 24)

R5: sc 3, inc (*6 times; 30)

R6-13: sc in each st (30)


Fasten off and weave in your ends. Place your 10 mm eyes between rows 6&7 and 11&12 about an inch apart. Embroider mouth.


Starting with your second color; the left side.

R1: ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook (6)

R2: inc in each st (*6 times; 12)

R3: sc, inc (*6 times; 18)

R4: sc 2, inc (*6 times; 24)

R5: sc 3, inc (*6 times; 30)

R6-12: sc in each st (30)


Do not cut, now you will begin crocheting the two pieces together

  • Insert your hook into the first st of row 13 on the left half of your pill, as if you were going to make a sc.

  • Take the other half of your pill and poke your hook through a st on the backside of the pill (opposite of the face).

  • Yarn over and pull through both halves to join. Sc around, pausing to stuff before you close it. *When I add stuffing, I break it up with my hands so the pill doesn't end up lumpy.

  • Slst into the beginning of where you joined then fasten off and cut. Weave in your yarn tail.

I love the looks of this pattern and plan to try it out for myself. Is there any chance you have come up with a pill bottle pattern? I have seen a few pill bottle cozy patterns that I may be able to adapt into an actual pill bottle but I have never had much luck with doing those sort of things.
