After making a lot of amigurumi items that had ball shapes in them, I realised that there was a simple mathematical way of working out how to get whatever size ball I was trying to make, more or less, knowing how many rows were needed between the shaping for the top and bottom of the ball (sphere). The first eight sizes are here in full, after that I tell you how to continue if you want to make larger ones. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do more than count and maybe divide an even number in half! So here you have a pattern you can use to make a huge number of different sizes of ball or sphere with whatever yarn you have to hand – although I do recommend a firm one, such as a cotton, if you want a fairly accurate sphere. It’s also a good way to use up leftovers – I include how to work out how big a ball you can make with the yarn you have, although you WILL need to do some maths for that.
