Knit Ball Pit

September 2018
7 - 14 yards (6 - 13 m)
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

January update: We have received over 2,000 balls! Thank you to everyone who has contributed!

If you are coming to VK LIVE in NYC, you can still bring balls to add to the pit on site. And I will post photos of the ball pit in action at VK LIVE soon!
If you missed taking part but would still like to support this project, you can donate funds directly to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.

Mochimochi Land is going to Vogue Knitting LIVE in NYC this January, and we want to make a splash with a whole ball pit full of knitted mochimochi balls!

After Vogue Knitting LIVE, the balls will be donated to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, who will send them to kids in Congo, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe.

Thank you to our sponsor, Cheers To Ewe!

To make this squishy cuddly fun possible, we need YOUR help: Please join us in knitting hundreds of colorful character balls! The deadline for contributions is January 3, 2019.

The free pattern (available in both flat and circular versions) knits up quickly with less than 10 yards of yarn needed. It’s a great project for yarn scraps!

** Please help us spread the word! You can download a printable flyer along with the pattern from this page.

** Crocheted balls are welcome too! Here’s a free pattern by Naomi Grattan.

We can’t wait to receive all your squishy happy mochimochi balls!
