I asked on Instagram a while back what

sorts of amigurumi people wanted to see,

and this amigurumi hot air balloon was a

big favorite, so here it is!

Before the Amigurumi Advent Calendar

Crochet-Along started, I had made all the

designs and wrote down all the patterns,

and it gave me a chance to review each one

to see if I wanted to do it differently a

second time around. For most of the

designs, I like the way they came out the

first time, but the hot air balloon gave me

second thoughts. The first one I made was

top-down, which made for a very nice,

smooth top, but the bottom got narrow and

difficult to crochet. I figured I could

crochet a second one and adjust the

pattern to work from the bottom up to get

that clean sharp edge at the bottom. But

when you work from the bottom up, the

top of the balloon uses an amigurumi close,

which is a great technique, but not as neat

as if you started with 6 single crochets in a

magic circle. So now I’m stumped. Which

pattern do I share?

After a quick poll, it looks like more people

like the bottoms up version, or maybe it’s

because it’s a vertical striped design. The

vertical stripes is a personal preference;

like real hot air balloons, you can make

yours any color, with stripes and other

designs on it. I’m sharing 2 variations below

– one for the plain bottoms up hot air

balloon that you can customize yourself,

and the variation for the vertical striping.

You can choose to carry the other color

yarn with you or leave it to hang in the

back/inside of the balloon. I found it easier

to leave the yarn I wasn’t using just loose in

the inside of the balloon for the first

several rounds, but when I had to cover

more distance, it became harder to keep

my stitches even, so then I switched to

carrying my yarn inside the stitches. It’s

definitely a cleaner look on the inside, but

you can see the tiniest bit of yellow

showing through on the outside. For this

project, either technique is personal

preference.

The basket of the hot air balloon is the

same no matter what design you pick for

the balloon itself. You create a tiny basket

and then use the end tail to attach it to the

bottom of the balloon. That’s all there is to

that!
