An intermediate knitted toy ball is worked in stripes in a chunky singles wool for a geometric effect. Working from the equator to the shaped ends, the shaped stripes create merging lines at the poles of this colorwork toy.

Designer Lisa Shroyer
Finished Size About 23" circumference, stuffed.
Yarn Manos del Uruguay Wool Clásica (100% wool; 138 yd [126 m]/100 g): #U red-brown (red) and #F green, 1 skein each. Yarn distributed by Fairmount Fibers.
Needles Size 10 (6 mm): 16" circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
• Size J/10 (6 mm) crochet hook;
• waste yarn;
• marker (m);
• tapestry needle;
• polyfill stuffing.
Gauge 16 sts and 16 rnds = 4" in stranded stripe patt. Stuffing will distort gauge; gauge is not critical for this project.

The halves really need stuffing to round them out.  If you were going to make a hat I would recommend knitting way more than 5 rounds even before the decrease.

Did this start life as a cap knitting project? It looks like half of it would make an interesting hat!
