Crochet Football Applique Hat

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.

I hope you found this useful, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to leave a comment or you can email me at email hidden; JavaScript is required. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

    Just to let you know that I got this message “Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist.” when I looked for the football applique. 🙁

    I am having trouble with the football applique. Is it supposed to be worked in a round or should I be turning at the end of each row?

      Yes, you should be turning at the end of each row. Then at the end you sc around the whole thing.
