This colorful crochet game is a project that is great for kids and safe for any age! Not only is it easy enough for junior crocheters to make, but it's also a creative way for youngsters to play indoors on rainy days. Designer Laura Manning made the striped bucket-of-fun using eight vivid colors plus black, with a matching ball in each of the eight colors. The bucket cover and balls are crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.00 mm) hook. The cover fits a plastic ice cream container with removable handle; its approximate finished design size is for a 7" tall bucket. Original Publication: Crochet With Heart magazine, June 1998 issue.
