A lot of brilliant, shimmering, sparklingChristmas decorations are sold in stores. But the knitted ball will be a warm, cute, very home-like cozy decoration on the Christmas tree. You can connect such a ball to 5 knitting needles. You will need yarn of different colors from the remains, 5 spokes and sintepon or other filler. 1 row. We type 12 loops and divide them into 4 spokes as knitted socks. 2 row. We knit according to the scheme. 3 row. At the end of each spoke we make an increase. 4 row. We knit without changes. 5 row. At the beginning and end of the needle, we make one increase. 4 + 2 = 6, and in the series 24 loops. 6 row. We knit directly, without changes. 7 row. 6 + 2 = 8 p. On the spoke, 32 in the row. 8 row. Without changes. 9 row. 8 + 2 = 10 p. On the spoke and 40 in the row. 10 row. Without changes. 11 row. 10 + 2 = 12 points on the spoke and 48 in the row. 12 row. Without changes. 13 row. 12 + 2 = 14 p. On the spoke and 56 in the row. 14 row. Add to the knitting color thread, we have it red. We knit according to the scheme. The number of loops does not change. 15 row. White thread. 14 + 2 = 16 p. On the spoke and in the row 64. 16 - 27 rows. The number of loops does not change, we knit according to the scheme. 28 row. 16 - 2 = 14 points on the spoke and 56 in the row. We subtract on each spoke one loop at the beginning and at the end. 29 row. We cut off the red thread. We knit unchanged, white thread. We took a simple cheap ball with a diameter of 13 cm. You can not stuff our toy with a sintepon, but you can tie an already existing ball. Let's try it now, since the narrowing of knitting will go on. Further we knit together with it. 30 row. 14 - 2 = 12 points on the spoke and 48 in the row. 31 row. Without changes. 32 - 40 rows. According to the first scheme. Now it remains to adjust the fingers of the thread to lie flat, close the top hole and hide the thread inside the knitting, sew the bottom hole. And the ball is ready! Happy New Year!
