Braided knitted ball for charity pattern – children love these!By
This is a darling knitted ball that is easy to make.Â Make 2 – keep one for yourself and give the other to charity!
These are hand knitted – here are the instructions from ravelry.com – if you don’t belong, sign up – it’s free and full of wonderful people and patterns.
These balls are called ‘comfort balls’ and the children in hospital, homeless shelters and crisis centers love the soft toys. Â So do the adults
If you want to make them for your local animal shelter, you can put a jingle bell inside of the ball inside of a plastic container like the clear balls that knee highs from Wal Mart come in. Â We don’t recommend bells inside of the ones going to children because of the choking hazard.
This is a perfect project for all the scrap yarn you have left over!.
We could really use donations of yarn to help us make these comfort toys. If you would like to share your stash with us, please mail donations to:
