This easily customizable toy pattern is a fun way to play with colors. The small amount of yarn required makes it great for Mini Packs or stashbusting.

The spheres are worked in the round and stuffed before finishing. Directions are given for versions with three, two, one, and no stripes. Increases and decreases are the same for all versions. One mini skein (25 grams, 54 yds) is enough to make one sphere. Mix and match the colors and choose from three, two, one, or no striped versions to make a customized set, or follow the recommended color combinations to use up the whole pack and make eight sets of three.
