Before working last pentagon, turn ball inside
out and weave in all ends. Do so in such a
way that the fabric will not be distorted when
it is stretched by the stuffing.
Note: As written, ball is stuffed before last
pentagon is completed. If you are uncomfortable
working this way, cast on for one edge of the
last pentagon instead of picking up sts for
all edges, stuff the ball after knitting is
complete, then sew the opening closed.

After working the first few rounds of this
pentagon, stuff the ball most of the way.
If adding noisemakers, do so at this point.
When pentagon is almost complete, finish
stuffing the ball.
