Football Baby Hat Free Knitting Pattern by blogger Gina Michele
With the Super Bowl coming up I thought it would be cute to knit Indigo a Football Hat. I must admit, I don’t watch football but my family is obsessed. I knew they would get a kick out of seeing Indigo in his little football hat.
This Football Hat Knitting Pattern features a ribbed band and a stripe at the crown. The “laces” are sewn on after the hat is completed using a yarn needle. This hat is a quick knit and it’s the perfect thing to get your little one Super Bowl ready!
