Bella the Boba Tea - New Version

Bella the Boba Tea 

This post contains affiliate links, all links are for products that I have used and recommend, by purchasing items through this link I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you which helps me continue to make free patterns for you to enjoy

I originally made this pattern almost three years ago when I first started designing and I decided

it was time to update it. The pattern is the same, I just switched up the format so it’s the same

as my more recent patterns and added some more instructions and photos in order to make it

easier to follow. 

This pattern is super quick and easy, it took me a little less than an hour, but if you're a beginner or haven't done a lot of amigurumi, it may take you a little bit longer. 

I’ve made the boba tea using lots of different colours for the tea and white for the lid, but you could also use any combination of colours. I used a worsted weight acrylic yarn because I find it works really well for amigurumi, is affordable, and you can find it in so many colours, however, you could totally make this with a thinner yarn to make a tiny boba, or with jumbo yarn to make a giant boba. Some great options for worsted acrylic yarns are WeCrochet’s Brava Worsted, Red heart’s Super Saver and Craft Smart Value. 

All the pictures will have a short explanation in italics and dark grey below them.
