Directions:
Ball is made with two halves.
This project is crochet using rounds. You will need to mark your stitches to keep your place. To help keep track, place a stitch marker at the beginning of the first round, then slip the marker when you come to it on each round. I like to use a safety pin to mark my rounds.
I also suggest using a pencil and note pad or a row counter to keep track of the rounds you have worked
