How did you knit a ball like that? I would so love to make one of these... Cheesy
  (Bongirl5, your avatar is great!)

I second this question... I have to make soot sprites!! 

And thanks for the link to the candy.. I'm going to surprise my guy with them, too, only he's 26!  Hehe..  we can't get enough of the Miyazake! (although Kiki's Delivery Service was pretty weird plotwise, even for one of his movies.. anyone else?)

This is how I made them:
Quote
Using 4 dpns and holding the two yarns together as one strand, I cast one on each of 3 dpns, then increased in each stitch, then increased just the first stitch of each needle, then the middle stitch of each needle, then the first and last stitch of each needle, then knit straight a few rows, then did decreases instead of increases in the same type of pattern.
Ok. Let me think.

Pattern style:

-Caron Simply Soft in black (or any black worsted yarn)
-Patons Cha Cha in black (or other eyelash yarn but I really do recommend this one for the best effect)
-size 3 or 4 dpns, set of 4 or a circular (if you can manage one this tiny)
-two white buttons (no idea what the style is called) with irises painted on in black and sealed with clear fingernail polish, dried for at least an hour)
-a very small amount of stuffing. Two cottonballs might even work, or some of the yarn itself.

On the worsted yarn, strand the two buttons, slip toward the yarn ball.
Cast on 3 stitches, one each needle, holding the two yarns together as one.
1 ~ Inc in each st
2 ~ *Inc, k1* 3x
3 ~ *k1, inc, k1* 3x
4 ~ *inc, k2, inc* 3x
5 ~ K 1, slide a button up, p1, k1, slide a button up, p1, k to end
6-9 ~ k
10 ~ *dec, k2, dec* 3x
11 ~ *k1, dec, k1* 3x
stuff
12 ~ *dec, k1* 3x
13 ~ dec in each st
Use a drawstring closure to bind off. Leave the tail long and use to sew on a clip if you wish.

I think that's right. No yarn here at school to test the pattern so let me know. Or maybe I can print this and test it this weekend. I'll put this on the original post.

Umm.... I made mine  Grin

I think I'm going to make a whole bunch... because really, what else can I do with that ChaCha yarn?  Cheesy (besides fuel my addiction for soft fluffy stuff)
Test with fun fur, to show the difference:


Really? knitting/increasing with that few stitches in the round was killer to work with. soo.... instead of purling in the round (to put the right side out) I knitted to make an inside out soot ball (it took me the longest time to realize that I was knitting in the round wrong! Embarrassed )
