Flow on Revolved Surface

Or if you have a pattern that repeats at certain intervals maybe you can trim out a small section the middle area of a sphere where it is not so highly compressed as at the poles and then repeat that around, something like the attached sphere.

Although that may not quite work right because each sector has some trimmed away area in the corners, and Flow will be working on the underlying full surface. But it depends on what kind of pattern you are trying to create.
