Spring Break Frisbee

I created this pattern while sitting next to the campfire during spring break. I made several of them... they didn't take anytime at all. I found that a 100% cotton yarn like Lily's sugar and cream or the Walmart Peaches and Cream yarn worked best. On some attempts I used a slightly higher quality cotton yarn and found that the finished product was not as stiff and therefor didn't fly as well...they still worked great, however, so by all means use what you have. I haven't tried making this pattern with any other type of yarn although I'm sure it would work great.

These frisbees are great indoors or out.


Size K crochet hook
2 balls of worsted weight yarn (100% cotton dish cloth quality works best)
tapestry needle

Round 1: Holding 2 strands together and using the K hook use the magic ring method to SC 6 into the ring.
Round 2: 2 SC into each of the 6 stitches (12 st)
Round 3: *SC into next SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (18 st)
Round 4: *SC into next 2 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (24 st)
Round 5: *SC into next 3 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (30 st)
Round 6: *SC into next 4 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (36 st)
Round 7: *SC into next 5 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (42 st)
Round 8: *SC into next 6 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (48 st)
Round 9: *SC into next 7 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (54 st)
Round 10: *SC into next 8 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (60 st)
Round 11: *SC into next 9 SC, 2 SC into next SC* repeat around (66 st)
Round 12: *SC into next 9 SC, SC next 2 stitches together* repeat around (60 st)
Round 13: *SC into next 8 SC, SC next 2 stitches together* repeat around (54 st)




I made this cute set with hacky sack, frisbee, and bag of marbles(I altered the original pattern to make a bigger bag) for the BOW silent auction on March 26th.

  5. Just finished my first frisbee using your pattern but you didn't list how to bind off. Just slip stitch in first loop and pull yarn through and tighten? I am new to this. Trying in out in the woods today. Almost used all the cotton ball yarn. Thanks for the super easy pattern.

    1. Yes just a slip stitch, pull yarn through, and weave in the ends.
