Large Crocheted Ball
Well here's what I learned when making a larger ball...
Start with a circle of 6, I like a magic circle because you can close the hole in the middle very tight. Begin your circle as usual, first row 2 sc in every stitch, second row 1 sc, 2 sc and so on until you've come to row 4 or 5(this will depend on how big your ball will be, I was using thin yarn). After finishing row 4 or 5, next row will be 1 sc in every stitch. Next row continue expanding for your circle. Next row 1 sc in every stitch. Next row continue expanding for your circle.
Basically your last 2 expansion rows should have 1 sc rows between them. We now have roundness!
