Flower Version – Amish Puzzle Ball

I am so taken with these fun little balls, I have made 3 regular ones now and I also had a go at an elephant but that is another story!

Flower Amish Ball Pieces

Thought I would try the flower version to add to my growing collection. It works pretty much the same as the other pattern in principle except you make flowers for the tops instead of the oval shapes. I did download a pattern here which is free, thank you to Dedri Uys, check out her pages on Ravelry she has lots more ideas using this unusual pattern.

I regret to say that I was not keen on the four petal flowers so decided to adapt the flowers a bit and have tried making a 5 petal version. I also chose to make a multi coloured version rather than the monochrome style shown in the pattern. I am hoping to get it finished in the next couple of days so I will let you see how it goes.

      Thank you, it would not last too long with Mollie if she is anything like my sons labrador was, Fudge would have loved one of these but would have the stuffing all over the floor in minutes!

        Molls is very timid and gentle and she loves her teddies to death… Likes to give them a good licking, leaves them outside etc! I have to wash or chuck them after a while!
