Colorful Crocheted Christmas Balls

Colorful Crocheted Christmas Balls

A few days ago I was poking around in Etsy, when I came upon this awesome shop, ATERGcrochet, owned by Greta Tulner, from Netherlands. It is one of the most colorful shops in Etsy World, and I immediately fell in love with her crocheted creations. I was especially drawn to her beautiful Crocheted Christmas balls.

Aren’t they incredible? Well, she sells the pattern for them, and although I am a crocheting noob, I decided to stretch a bit, and I purchased a pattern. The design is lovely, but I also fell in love with the yarn she used. It is 100% cotton, and has a lovely sheen and gorgeous colors.

The yarn is Schachenmayr SMC “Catania” and is made in Hungary, but I found an US store that carries the yarn. I purchased my yarn from Yarn Paradise. I just received them this evening… super fast delivery BTW… I just ordered them 2 days ago! I was thrilled when I opened the box and saw them. The colors are so vibrant and the yarn feels soft, smooth and lovely. I bought 12 different colors so I should be able to make some very colorful balls. I can’t wait to get to work with this yarn.

Given the fact that Christmas is just around the corner, and I really don’t know much about crocheting, I don’t know if I’ll get any done for this Christmas. But it’s never too early to start on next Christmas, right? 🙂

BTW… We now have a button up to visit us on Pinterest. Hope you stop by 🙂



  1. Hi,

    I just found your website this morning. I am going to enjoy browsing – love it. I will also try out the crocheted balls – haven’t crocheted in ages and they look so beautiful – must try them. I have been to Yarn Paradise – it’s in the heart of Asheville, NC and sits on a cozy street near a tearoom. Love that shop. Have spent a lot of money in that shop. Thanks for sharing your art…Cathy

  2. What vibrant colors. The yarn is just beautiful. Makes me want to start this project.
