Knitted Eyeball

Step 1: Materials

The Materials you will need to make this project:

1. Knifty Knitter set of knitting looms.
These come in 4 sizes, for this project I am using the smallest loom (the blue one) but you can use any size. I have made larger eyeballs using the green loom.

2. Yarn- I am using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice. If you are using one of the larger looms you will want to either use thicker yarn (bulky weight) or use a double strand of worsted weight.
1 skein of white yarn
1 skein of black yarn (you won't use very much black so if you have some leftover from another project that is perfect)
1 skein of blue yarn (or brown or green, whatever eye color you want to make)
1 small skein of red yarn or red embroidery floss, I used Sugar 'n' Cream crochet yarn.

3. scissors

4. Poly fiberfill stuffing

Pick up 2nd color, Tie on, carry along or break off & knit 2nd wedge.

Repeat pattern, alternating colors until there are 5 wedges of each.

Stuff with polyester fiberfil and sew seam.

3 colors can be used by knitting two rows of a 4th color

and only making 9 wedges.

(When using three colors--one gets 12 wedges).

Here ya go..... Each can be made of scrap yarn.

Baby Ball

You can also reduce the size, by subtracting either 2,4,6,8 stiches from each of the above.
