Ange’s C-ball from Princess Principal pattern

My little brother is convinced that I can make anything. Which is awesome! Until I have to actually do it. A couple months ago he asked for an Ange cosplay, complete with her c-ball. I did not look relish the thought of imitating the weird shapes and seams on it, but his attempts to make one had failed and he is my best friend. So stuffie c-ball it was.

I couldn’t find an already written pattern, so I adapted Emily PremiseConclusion’s Holy Hand Grenade pattern to my needs. The first 27 rows of this pattern are almost word-for-word hers.

I used 100ish yards of a copper-colored heavy worsted yarn that I have lost the label for and a little bit of bright limey-green Caron Party. The whole thing was crochetted with a 4.5 mm hook. My brother felt that it was too big, so if you have the patience for fiddly sewing you may want to go for a light worsted or a DK weight yarn. You will also need a yarn needle. There is a lot of assembly involved in this pattern.

This is my first written pattern. Please be kind. Let me know if I can further clarify anything!

Center Band:

Row 1) Ch 53, turn, sc in all but the first (52)
Row 2) Sc 3, ch 5, sc 5, ch 5, sc 5, ch 5, sc 6, ch 5, sc 5, ch 5, sc 3 (27 sc, 5 ch spaces)
Row 3) Sc in each sc, 5 sc in each ch space (52)
wrap around the middle of the ball and whip-stitch each side around the ball to create a somewhat even join that shows green only through the ch space gaps.

Vertical Bands (make 5):

Round 1) Foundation sc 9, dc 7 into the last ch. This should turn you to the chain on the bottom of the fdsc. Sc in each ch until you reach the end you started on and then dc another 7 into the last ch (18 sc, 14 dc)
Round 2) Slst in each sc, 2 hdc in each dc, repeat on other side, and fasten off (18 sl st, 28 hdc)
Running-stitch the edges on so that the narrow part of the band lies perpendicular to the center band and the large circles do not touch each other.

Top button:

Round 1) ch 2, dc 9 into the second chain from the hook (9)
Round 2) Sc 2 in each dc (18)
Round 3) ch 2, skip 2 sc, dc 4 in the next stitch, then sl st in the next st. Fasten off and running stitch to the center of the top.

Round 4, a seperate disk) Ch 2, sc 8 into the second chain from the hook, fasten off, and sew on top of the last disk

Weave in all ends, and there you go! Go forth and defy gravity!
