Baby Football Beanie {Tutorial}

Baby Football Beanie {Tutorial}

I just love this beanie! I have seen them floating around on Pinterest from different places and I had to try it out! I am very pleased with the end result. And the best part..I am going to share with you how I did it.

Materials Needed:
Main Color (MC)-Brown yarn (I used Red Heart)
White yarn (I used Red Heart)
H-sized crochet hook
yarn needle

Abbreviations used:
MC-Master Color (in this case, brown)
ch-chain
dc-double crochet
st-stitch
sl st-slip stitch

**Note: I don’t know if this is the proper way, but when I switch colors, all I do its make a slip knot on the hook with the new color and start chaining. Then after I finish that row, I cut the previous color and tie it off on the inside to the beginning tail of the new color.

**The size used here is for an infant and would fit 0-3 months.

Row 1-Using MC, make a magic circle. Ch 3, 5 dc in ring. Sl st to join
Row 2- Ch 3, dc in same st as the ch. 2 dc in each st. Sl st to join
Row 3 – Ch 3. *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next* repeat from * to end of row. Sl st to join
Row 4- Ch 3. *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next 2 sts* repeat from * to end of row. Sl st to join
Row 5 (CHANGE to white) – Ch 3, dc in each st. Sl st to join
Row 6 (CHANGE back to MC) -Ch 3, dc in each st. Sl st to join
Row 7-9 – Ch 3, dc in each st. Sl st to join
Row 10 (CHANGE to white) – Ch 3, dc in each st. Sl st to join
Row 11 (CHANGE back to MC) – Ch 3, dc in each st. Sl st to join. Finish off by weaving in tail.

Laces:

The laces part is super easy. Take your yarn needle and thread it with the white yarn. *Make sure you have at least 15 inches to work with. I know it sounds like a lot, but that way you can pull it through without having to worry about it getting too tangled up. The shorter the string I used, the harder it was to make it look smooth.*

I have noted in the picture what number corresponds to where I am talking about.

1. Find the center front of your beanie. From the center, in row 6 (where you changed back to brown), count over three and place your yarn needle in from inside. Pull that through and count over 6 dc’s. Go back in after the 6th dc.

2. From the inside, go to the middle of the hat again,(between 3 and 4) and go down 1 dc pulling the yarn through from inside to out and back in.

3. For this, you will do the same as in step 1, only this time,  you are only using 4 dc’s to go around.

4. Go down as you did in Step 2

5. Go back out to 6 stitches and repeat as you did in step 1.

I hope you enjoy making this hat! As always, your comments and questions are always welcomed! Thank you for stopping by!
