If you want a nice soft indoor ball, knit this with cotton or wool and stuff with a fabric ball or ball form. If you want an outdoor ball, you can cut strips of plastic bag or some other water-resistant yarn and knit it around a mini beach ball. You can also use a thinner yarn to make a mini ball, key ring or hacky sack. The PDF includes a bunch of ideas for patriotic colours, in case you’d like to support the home team.
PS: This is cool! How coincidental. If you don’t want to knit a soccer ball (anyone watching Euro 2008? Yay!) you can Knit an Inukshuk for the 2010 Winter Games in British Columbia.
