A little project just before the holidays. You can make this in Shetland Wool yarn. For this you can use a single coloured bauble.

This pattern is worked in Shetland lace, which means all rows are knit.

Because it is worked in the round the end result looks like stockinette.

You will need:
a tape measure to size the ball.
In this example it is a blue one, circumference is 25cm or 10”.
Hight is approx 8,5 cm or 3”.
A set of 5 double point needles size 2,5mm or US1.5.
Preferably bamboo, they are light and will not drop out of the stitches as fast as a metal needle. A stitch marker to indicate the beginning of the row.
A fine tapestry needle
A bit of left over bit of Shetland Wool 1ply yarn. Approx 30m or 33y.
