Okay folks, these are really easy to make. If you’ve ever wanted to try a little two stranded colour work, then these are the perfect project to start with before you embark on something bigger. Each ball is made in exactly the same way, but with just a few lines of difference in each design, you can zip along once you get the hang of it. It takes only 5 grams or so of yarn (I’ve used Shetland dk) and some woolly stuffing to make each ball (I stuffed mine with lovely scoured and carded lambswool or wool nepps, so each one is child safe too).
There are 36 different balls to make here if you use just 2 colours of yarn - use more colours, have more balls….
