There are MANY free crochet patterns out there, and most, if not all, use the Bernat Blanket yarn. But, if you don’t have any on hand and you still want to make some water grenades, grab a 5.5 mm hook and some chunky 5-weight yarn.
These can be made in under 20 minutes each! So, in a couple of hours, you could have 6-12 grenades ready to be thrown! Depending on how fast you can crochet them. No muss, no fuss!
