NOTES:
1. Each Ball is worked as a rectangle, then sewn to create a Ball.


2. Each Ball is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together.

Before beginning to knit, re-wind each color of yarn as follows: holding the yarn tail that is on the outside of one yarn ball and the yarn tail that is buried in the center of the same ball, wind both strands into a 2-strand ball.
3. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
4. 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.
