These water balloons are a beginner friendly pattern and a great scrap buster! They are reusable, eco-friendly, latex-free, mess-free and a whole lot of fun. No more spending time filling water balloons and picking up dangerous plastic scraps. Just soak these in a bucket of water and they work just like a sponge!
This pattern calls for Bernat Blanket Yarn and a 9.0mm crochet hook.

Will these hurt? I have had questions from some about whether these will hurt upon contact. I bit the bullet and let my husband throw one at me TWICE. I really didn't think that it hurt. I would use the same rules as I would advise with regular water balloons: don't throw at the face/head and don't throw TOO hard. Use these at your own risk and encourage your children to use them carefully :)
How do you fill them? You don't! Just soak them in water-they work like a sponge :)
Can I sell these? Absolutely! I just ask that you don't reproduce the pattern in any way (in print or electronically) and that you use your own pictures for your sales. Come back and let me know how they sell for you!
Can I used a different yarn? In this instance I am not sure other yarn would work quite as well as the Bernat Blanket yarn. You can use any kind of Bernat Blanket yarn (big ball, stripes, baby blanket, brights) but I can't guarantee that water balloons made with an entirely different yarn would work the same way.
