This is number two in a series of soccer balls I am working on. It is made up of spiral hexagons and pentagons.
It was a long process to figure out the position of all the colours to make sure they all match up and form continuing spirals around the ball.
The basic ball is black to form a lining for the crochet
The finished ball
The first one in the series is a patchwork ball made from shweshwe-fabric, a traditional South African fabric, in the colours of the SA flag.
The next one will be embroidered..
More stories and photos about the process on my blog.
