How to crochet eyeballs with Debbie Stoller's Washable ewe yarn

One set of eyeballs says to the other,"________________".
I really don't know what they are saying to each other but they do make me laugh.
Is it crazy that I am giving my Halloween decoration eyeballs costumes now? Howdy partner!
If you like my latest set of eyeballs and want to make yourself a set grab a hook and yarn and get crocheting.

I used a size "I" hook and some of the new Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller Washable Ewe Yarn.

This is the general pattern, I'm not really exact about my crochet and I purposefully made my eyeballs slightly different sizes so they would have a bit more personality.

Black yarn:
Chain 1 and then 7 single crochets in first loop. Slip stitch into first stitch.

Change color to iris color:
Single crochet 2 rounds increasing approximately every other stitch to create a dome shape.

Change color to white:
Single crochet for 2 rounds again increase approximately every 2 to 3 stitches.

1 round of single crochet with no increases or decreases.

Single crochet decreasing approximately every 5th stitch until you have a hole about the size of a marble.

Add stuffing and a marble or two.

Finish crocheting and stitch closed.

Read, Craft, Repeat Spooktastically!

OMG I love the crocheted eyes with the little hats on them! They're so funny! I love crafts made with a tongue-in-cheek style and these fit the bill!

I get such a kick out of your eyeballs, Stef.

You're already in Halloween mode?

Yikes, am I behind or are you ahead?!
