Pattern Description:

A simple pattern for a toy ball, made up of 6 leaf-shaped sections.

The small ball is approx. 3" diameter, medium 4" and Large 5-6".

Obviously this will vary depending on how tightly/loosely you knit. I have not given a set tension for this pattern as it doesn't really matter, as long as you are happy with your results.

The balls can be made using any DK yarn and I suggest 3mm needles to give you a nice firm fabric which will not stretch to show the stuffing when filled.

If making the balls for juggling, I suggest the small or medium sizes and you may need to add something into the filling to give you more weight.

I have tried to make the pattern as simple and clear as possible, but if you have any problems please feel free to PM me.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!


No gauge given as it is unimportant for size. However, use a slightly smaller needle size than recommended for your chosen yarn to get a nice firm fabric which will not stretch too far when stuffed.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small 3" diameter, Medium 4", Large 5-6"


  • 3mm needles

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle for sewing up
  • Toy filling
  • Small stone or other weight if making for juggling

Whatever your heart desires!

Excellent Super Easy  March 28, 2014

I found this pattern to be super easy to follow. The only trouble I had were remembering what row I was on and sewing it together at the end, but that's down to my own stupidity :). I completed this in about a days work.
I'll be doing more of them later, and they will all go to charity :)
