Orb-It Ball pattern
Get creative and use this simple ball pattern in endless ways! Experiment with different yarns, colors, stripes, and stuffings to make baby toys, dog toys, Christmas ornaments, juggling balls, hacky-sacks, etc.
You can use any weight of yarn and any double-pointed needle size, as long as you like the size and fabric it creates.
For the juggling balls, I used Cascade Arcadia, size 7 needles, and filled the balls with lentils inside knotted pantyhose.
This pattern was The Knitting Nest’s giveaway pattern/kit for the 2009 Hill Country Yarn Crawl.
