Anchor yarn with a small stitch into the top. * Using crochet hook, pick up a sl st in top of ball and make 10ch, pulling yarn through last st to make a slipknot. Thread yarn through a medium green ball until the slipknot disappears into the ball. Anchor as before. Rep from * to add on all balls. Thread balls as follows: (large purple, medium green, small cream, large green, medium cream, small purple, large cream, medium purple, small green) twice. When you have added last ball, work 10ch and anchor to first ball. Fasten off and sew in ends.
