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!

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.
