We are still in football mode here at our house, so we decided to make more football hats this week, this time with more team spirit. Now we are ready to cheer for either team in the Super Bowl (although these little guys will be snug in their beds by then).
To make these hats, I followed the color changes suggested in the Striped Band Hat version of my free Versatile Earflap Hat Pattern. I added tassels to the earflaps and sewed on a crocheted football applique. This cute applique is available for free from the Speckled Frog Crochet blog. It is really quick and easy to make, and it adds an extra special touch to the hat.
