Supplies Needed

• Wool yarn in several colors (make sure it’s not “washable”)
• Crochet hook or yarn needle
• Pantyhose
• Fabric scissors


Let’s Begin

1. One 3.5-ounce skein of yarn will make 2 dryer balls; you’ll need about 4 balls for any load of laundry, so gather 2 full skeins, plus more for additional color, if desired.
