Flickr user/Sprite Stitcher/Princess of All Cosmos Mara Cheng made a crocheted katamari that works a bit like its videogame counterpart, and she did it the Jesse Pinkman way: with magnets. Yeah, Science!
Actually Mara made it the Amy Shimel way. Amy designed the pattern back in 2007, way before Jesse and Walt needed magnets. Amy’s design calls for 28 0.75″ round magnets stuffed inside the ball along with Poly-Fil. Amy says you have to crochet the main body as tight as you can so that the Katamari won’t be deformed by the weight of the magnets. Roll to Amy’s website for the instructions.
