Hi, Guys and Welcome to Studio Knit. Today, we are going to knit a SOCCER BALL!
GOAL!!! It is a fun toy for children, or even dogs! I just noticed that the leading knitting website
Ravelry is featuring my colorful SOCCER BALL on their home page and blog and it is getting
a lot of love. So, I thought it would be fun to share my process of knitting this plush
toy with you. The materials we will use are:
10 grams of Yarn, in any colors of your choice 2 Size 6 US knitting needles
Scissors, a Tapestry Needle And about 8 ounces of fluffy stuffing! We will first create twenty individual HEXAGON
KNIT SHAPES. Mine are white. And twelve PENTAGONS, which I made in various
vibrant colors. This project really familiarizes you with
how a SOCCER BALL is constructed. I never realized it is composed of both Hexagons and
Pentagons. Oh, and if you are enjoying learning how to
knit a SOCCER BALL, please hit LIKE. Let me know you would enjoy seeing more fun ideas
like this! I learned how to make this KNIT SOCCER BALL
from the great free pattern at YanaKnits. I have the link to the complete pattern in
the description below, including how to make the hexagon and pentagon shapes. I have created this graphic to help you see
how to knit your shapes together. I�ll include a link to download this graphic in the description
below, too. Once all your knit shapes are ready, start
knitting them together, following the chart. This ball is, of course, in 3-D, so the shapes
will connect together in a really cool way. Notice how you always have your Pentagon encircled
with five Hexagons? Keeping that in mind will help you as you get closer to wrapping the
piece around to connect all of the sides together. Oh, if you would like to add a shaker, get
creative! I took a plastic Easter Egg, filled it with dried brown rice, and taped it securely
shut. Once we have knitted up all but the opening,
it is time for the stuffing! I�m placing my shaker into the middle of my soccer ball. Awesome, you have learned how to KNIT a SOCCER
BALL! I really hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. And let�s be friends on Ravelry.
I�ll include the link to my username below. And thank you so much for watching Studio
Knit! When you subscribe, you will receive a new knitting lesson every Monday. And check out my other videos like the World
Cup�s #PROUDTOPLAY and how to knit a SPORTS HEADBAND. Sporty fun for everyone! GOAL! Bye.
