Ball of Yarn

I had a baby shower to go to last week. I pulled out some crochet patterns from the "to make someday" file and got to work. The first thing I made was this crocheted ball.

It was fun to make this ball. The white part was new to me. I've never done a front post half double crochet stitch before.

It was bigger than I expected. It just kept growing and growing. I ended up leaving off a few of the "increasing" rows. I also ended up taking out the middle pink part because it wasn't quite a circle with it (probably a result of reducing the first part).
You can make the ball even smaller by ending your increase rows whenever you want. The trick is to only do just enough of the middle rows to keep it a circle.
