Knit a Christmas ball ornament

There is always place for one more beautiful ornament on the Christmas tree! Knit your own, super easy Christmas ball!

Step 1: Choose your favorite 3 colour combination of any yarn. The heavier the yarn bigger the ornament will be.

Step 2: With colour A Cast on 25 stitches

Row 1: Knit front and back of the loop (or use any other method you like to increase 1 stitch), knit to last 2 stitches, knit 2 together.
