Another Hat for Football Fans

Earlier this year I made Crochet Football Applique Hats for my two boys for Superbowl Sunday. The hats looked so cute and it was a fun way to show team spirit. Of course, when my nephew saw them, he wanted one of his own. His mom had the great idea of adding his favorite player’s number to the hat.

Now that football season is here again, I thought I would share the idea with you. Find all the information you need to make the Football Applique Hat here. Then simply cut the number you would like to use out of felt and sew it to the hat with a running stitch.

This idea isn’t just for professional teams either. It would be great to use for your own football players in their team colors too – a special hat made just for them!

    What color yarn did you use for the main portion of the hat? I am looking for a color to match the eagles green and can not seem to find the right shade. Thank you.

      Hi Mindy! It is a really tough shade to match! I used Red Heart Super Saver in Real Teal. I would usually never use this yarn for a hat, but it was the closest color I could find.

        Thank you! I was thinking of using that color, but I wasn’t sure if it would come off more blue then green. By the way, what brand of yarn do you use most for your hats?

          I usually use Vanna’s Choice or I Love This Yarn (from Hobby Lobby) or Impeccable (from Michael’s). They are all really soft and easy to care for, as well as inexpensive.
