The One Ball-aclava

The One Ball-aclava

Pattern Details



Sizes: 20(21, 22, 23, 24)”/50(53,56, 58, 61) cm head circumference


Gauge: 30 stitches and 40 rows per 4” (10 cm) with fingering weight yarn in (k1, p1) OR (k2, p2) ribbing.


*Designer’s note: Stitch gauge is taken when stretched. Keep in mind, the way your swatch stretches is how your Ball-aclava will stretch over your head. If you don’t like the stretch of your swatch you will need to adjust your needles or yarn.


Needles: (1) 32” if using Magic Loop Method OR (1) 16” set of circular needles in size needed to achieve gauge listed above (suggested size: US 2/2.75 mm).


Designer’s note: Everyone knits differently, so I HIGHLY recommend you do a gauge swatch before starting your Ball-aclava to ensure that your gauge is correct for the pattern. You may prefer going up/down in needle sizes depending on your tension and the finished fabric of your swatch.


Yardage: One ball of sock yarn/fingering weight yarn (approximately 434 yds), OR any other yarn that knits up to suggested gauge.


Other notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle, scrap yarn/stitch holder, tape measure and scissors.
