Each row of color will taper off at both edges-this will make the ball shape of the tawashi.
||Make the last yarn over of your last stitch with a second color (I used three in all, which makes it easy to pick up the colors at the end of each row), and turn.
||Row 2: Working in the back loop ONLY, ch 1, sc in first 2 sc, hdc in next 2 hdc, dc in next 12 dc, hdc in next 2 dc, sc in last 2 dc (changing colors with last sc), and turn.
Repeat row 2 twenty-two more times, for a total of 24 stripes of color. Row 3 will be your third color (white, for mine). You'll work every row in the back loop only, which will give the tawashi a slightly ribbed texture.
||When you get to the end of your third (white) row, grab the color from the first row (green) to complete the last single crochet, and turn.
