Close the 6 remaining stitches through the back loops, break the yarn and weave in ends.

Crochet 8 balls more (in total, you must have 9), using different colors.

Chain 60 ch stitches and join the 1st ball, crocheting a superficial sc on it (see photo). Chain 25 ch stitches and join the 2nd ball. Chain further 25 ch stitches and join the 3rd ball. Chain further 25 ch stitches and join the 4th ball. Chain further 25 ch stitches and join the 5th ball. Chain further 25 ch stitches and join the 6th ball.
