Loom Knit Play Balls
I made these for my new nephew and am happy I could give him a homemade gift. I made 2 different sizes. The larger size was made on the blue circle loom (typically used to make infant hats) and the smaller ball was made on the peach colored flower loom (uuuhhhh - typically used to make flowers.) You can see pictures of looms with yarn on them below.
I just did the Basic E-Wrap Stitch to make them and added in a stripe in the center to make them a coordinating set. I stuffed them with batting around a small jingle bell in the center before casting off and closing.
To make the larger balls I cast on 25 rows on the blue circle loom.
To make the smaller balls I cast on 16 rows on the peach flower loom.
