Knitted Yarn Ball

A ball of yarn that has been intricately woven together using knitting techniques. This yarn ball is the result of carefully looping and interlocking yarn strands to create a cohesive and durable structure. The process of knitting involves using needles to manipulate the yarn into various patterns and designs, resulting in a unique and visually appealing finished product. Knitted yarn balls are commonly used in crafting projects such as making clothing, accessories, and home decor items. Whether used for practical purposes or as a decorative element, a knitted yarn ball adds a touch of warmth and coziness to any space. The art of knitting has been passed down through generations, with each knitted yarn ball telling a story of tradition and craftsmanship.

Break yarn and pull through remaining stitches. Pull tight and then sew up side of ball. Stuff to desired firmness. Run the sewing yarn through the cast on stitches, pull tight, and fasten off.


New Notes

Yeah, I certainly could have written that better if I’d actually known the names of the increases and decreases I used. Not that it really matters, since my goal was to double or halve the stitches. With that in mind, anything (written like this) is a note. Usually about ways you may want to try something different. For example, I currently don’t think long-tail cast on is the best cast on for the job, provisional may be better.

Yarn, Needles, & Gauge

Not particularly important. Pick something that won’t let too much stuffing show through and you ought to be good.


– Cast on 6 stitches. (Note that I originally designed this with a long tail cast on, but anything ought to work)

– Knit a row.

– Pfb across row – 12 sts (You can alternatively use any increase you want as long as you double the amount of stitches)

– Starting with a knit row, work 2 rows in stst

– Kfb across row – 24 sts (Same as last increase row, just double the stitches)

– Starting with a purl row, work 9 rows in stst

– K2Tog across – 12 sts (Same as increases, you just want to halve the stitches here)

– Starting with a purl row, work 2 rows stst

– P2tog – 6 sts (Halve the stitches again)

– Knit 1 row
