Knit A Fairly Accurate Baseball … Looks Very Realistic To Me!

Babe Ruth said, “Never allow the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!” And you know what, I think that advice can be applied to knitting and crocheting too; never let the fear of making mistakes keep you from trying a new pattern or learning a new skill.

How about a knitted baseball? Isn’t this great?

A note from designer Marcus Hartzler, “This ball is exactly what its name would suggest: a fairly accurate baseball! It uses the same two panel construction that an actual baseball uses. The combination of working the panels from the inside-out and short row shaping gives the stitching the smooth curves that are recognizable from any angle.”

“If you want to create something truly unique and maybe challenge yourself in the process, give this a try!”
