Loom Knit Playtime Balls

Lion Brand® Baby's First®

GAUGE:

14 stitches = about 4 in. (10 cm)
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT.
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
2. The loom is configured into a rectangle to make it easier to hold, but the Ball is worked in rows across only one side of the loom.

Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces: (2) 12-hole pieces, (4) corner pieces.

Connect pieces to form a rectangle as follows: corner piece > corner piece > 12-hole piece > corner piece > corner piece > 12-hole piece.

Insert 12 small pegs into every hole along one 12-hole piece.
Insert 2 small pegs into the corner piece to the left of this 12-hole piece and one small peg into the corner piece to the right of this 12-hole piece - 15 working pegs placed. Place contrast color pegs in connecting holes to hold loom together.

BALL (make one in each color)
Cast onto every working peg.
Knit one row, then purl one row until piece measures about 12 in. (30.5 cm) from beginning.
Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail.

FINISHING
Thread yarn tail of one rectangle into yarn needle provided with loom, then sew cast-on edge to bound-off edge to form a tube. Knot yarn tail, then weave it in and out through stitches along open end of tube. Draw stitches tightly together and knot yarn to secure.
Stuff with fiberfill stuffing. Thread needle with matching yarn, then weave needle in and out through stitches around remaining open end of tube and finish off as for first end. Thread yarn ends into same needle and weave ends to inside of Ball.
