My partner is a huge cricket fan and I always love making fun knitted gifts for him, so this cricket ball was the perfect gift for him at Christmas. This cricket ball will make a great ball to safely throw with his teeny nephews and teach them how to be great fielders!

This pattern also doubles up as a pattern for a baseball, so you can make one for baseball fans too!

The pattern for all three sizes of Cricket Ball and Baseball is available for free on my blog. For an ad-free version, you can buy the PDF.

The pattern is also available for free on the Knotions website, where the pattern was first published.
