Step 10 can use any stitch as long as you've left the appropriate seam allowance

You only need to draw the gradual curved line on one quarter of it in Step 6, so when you fold it and cut it out along that line the piece will be symmetrical in both directions

.... I would love to know how you managed that...
no wait i got it, less strait line more curve. however long the strait line is at the point and the side that will come out as a flat spot on your finished ball, I wish I could sketch in comments:(, eh ill post something tomorrow if that's still confusing
