Decoration

Option 1 (I like this one more):

Holding the ball with the strap down (pictures below) introduce the decorating yarn into the front loop at the row 3; ch3, (1sc into next st, ch2) around until you reach the last front loop of the row 9. Fasten off, secure and hide the thread.

 

Turn the ball upside down so the strap is up and press the chains down and Voila 🙂

Option 2:

Holding the ball with the strap up (pictures below) introduce the decorating yarn into the front loop at the row 9; ch3, (1sc into next st, ch2) around until you reach the last front loop of the row 3. Fasten off, secure and hide the thread.
