Here are two of the Christmas Balls I made.
One was done this year (red), one last year (green). They're not quite as perfect as I'd like (being pretty detail oriented!), but they are a lot of fun to make and are great practice at stranded knitting.
I'm learning more as I go and one can easily be done in a day. The pattern came from 55 Christmas Balls To Knit by Arne & Carlos. If two-color knitting isn't your cup of tea, the designs can be added using duplicate stitch, or they can be done in solid colors or with decorative/patterned yarns as well. Hope you enjoy them...Happy Holidays, guys!
