These hackysacks are quick to make, plus they only use up slightly less than 10 yards, so they are perfect for random little balls of yarn you have lying around. They make great gifts for kids and can be stuffed with polyfill for some soft balls to throw around.

I realized that the technique for making the spirals might be a bit confusing. I’ve also made a little tutorial to explain the first two rounds.
