Pocket Frisbee

Hello crafters!

Summer is in full swing now so it’s the perfect time to post this tutorial for your own pocket frisbee! You might not have ever thought that you could crochet a frisbee that actually flies but this one really does the trick. There are so many advantages to pocket frisbees:

  • soft and safe for your children to play with
  • much easier on dog’s teeth than a hard plastic frisbee
  • you can pick out all kinds of cool yarn colours to make yours unique
  • you can fold it up and throw it in your back pocket
  • it only takes about an hour to throw one of these together
  • and it really flies; especially when it’s wet!

Now that you’re all excited let’s get to it!


  • Cotton yarn I used Bernat Handicrafter “Big Ball” (I have only experimented with cotton yarn because it is sturdy and heavy)
  • 8mm crochet hook


  1. I tested out a few versions before deciding on this design and realized that using two strands of yarn is more important than adding extra rows to make the frisbee bigger.
  2. This pattern is worked in the round but there is no joining at the end of the rounds. The pattern is worked in a continuous round. You can mark the beginning of the round so that you don’t lose track of where the beginning is.
  3. I don’t have stitch markers at home but I use either a paperclip or a small piece of yarn that I tie on and can just untie after.
  4. If you are having trouble with your marker you can just remember that each round will have six increases.
  5. An increase simply means work 2 single crochet into one stitch
  6. To do a single crochet decrease insert hook and pull up a loop. Insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.

  5. “6sc, increase in 7th stitch” Repeat 5 more times.

  9. “10sc, increase in 11th stitch” Repeat 5 more times.
  10. “11sc, increase in 12th stitch” Repeat 5 more times. At this point I put a marker in the last increase stitch at the end of the round.crochet frisbee
