A further object is to provide a crochet ball It is obvious that various changes and modi This invention relates to a crochet ball holder. Broadly, it is an object of my invention to pro holder which revolves with a minimum of fric tion and which can be readily taken apart if desired. For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of my invention, reference is had to the following detailed description, in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which: Fig. 1 is a perspective View of my crochet ball holder, Fig. 2 is a vertical cross‘ section ‘of same, and ' ?cations may be made in the appearance of my crochet ball holder and that various kinds of materials may be employed in the manufacture thereof, without departing from the general spirit of the invention. I claim: ‘ . _ 1. A crochet ball holder of the character de scribed, comprising a revolvable member for re ceiving a crochet ball, a pin embedded in the central portion thereof the opposite end of which ' is pointed and extends beyond the end of said Fig. 3 is a top view taken along line 3-3 of Fig. 2. revolvable member, a circular channel in said Referring to the drawing, numeral it repre 25 revolvable member, a base having a channel sents a crochet ball holder comprising a revolva adapted to loosely receive the lower portion of ble round top member H which may be made of wood, plastic, metal or the like. Member M has a hollow channel I2 in the lower portion thereof said revolvable member, a circular recess with a conical base to receive the pointed end of said with a narrower channel pin, a hollow member ?rmly embedded in said l3 communicating 30 circular recess, said hollow member having a tri therewith above channel I2. Communicating with channel l3, there is a narrow central bore of lesser diameter than channel IS in which is ?rmly embedded the upper portion of a pin 5'! which is pointed at its opposite end as shown at l8 and which extends below the lowest edge [9 of member ii. Pin H revolves with the re volvable member II. angular opening at the top thereof to maintain said pin in vertical position, the upper portion of said hollow member adapted to loosely ?t within said circular channel without preventing said revolvable member from turning. 2. A crochet ball holder comprising a base member and a vertical member, said base mem ber having a circular recess therein and a smaller recess'with a conical base communicating there A base 20 has a central member 2! which may be of metal, plastic or like material and has a 40 with, said vertical member having a hollow lower portion and a small circular central channel in circular channel 22 adapted to receive the lower its upper end communicating with said hollow portion, a pointed pin ?rmly embedded in the upper central upper portion of said vertical mem portion 2! there is a circular recess 23 terminat ‘ ing in a cone 24. Recess 23 is adapted to receive 45 ber with its lowermost pointed end extending beyond the lower end of said vertical ‘member the lower end of the tube M which is ?rmly em and adapted to ?t and revolve within said coni bedded therein. The upper portion of tube M cal base, a hollow vertical member ?xed within loosely ?ts within the narrow channel is of mem the smaller base recess and extending loosely ber H so that member II may freely revolve around tube Id. The top of tube 14 has a washer 50 into said circular central channel of said vertical ~ member, said hollow vertical member having a l5 ?rmly held therein, the washer having a tri washer with a central opening ?xed within its angular opening l6. The point E8 of the pin portion of member Ilwithout preventing mem~ ber H from freely revolving. In the central top portion and adapted to permit said pin to I1 rests within the apex of the cone 2d thus pro pass therethrough and to maintain said pin in viding a bearing for the revolvable member H. In using my device, a crochet ball 25 is placed 55 Vertical revolvable position. 2,410,018 ‘ ‘ _ 3. A crochet ball holder having a hollow base with a central channel terminating in a cone, 7 a revolvable vertical member to receive a ball of crochet yarn, said vertical member having a long pin embedded in the upper end of the cen tral portion and having a pointed end projecting beyond the lower end of said vertical member \ 4 3 . and adapted to fit within said hollow cone, a tubular vertical member fixed within said cen tral channel, said tubular member having a cen tral opening in its top to permit said pin to pass therethrough and to maintain said vertical mem ber in an upright revolvable position. ‘ - JAMES M.
