18 Crochet Football Patterns – A Roundup

Since I’m not quite ready to release my next pattern, I thought I’d try my hand at a roundup and it has been so much fun looking for crochet football items! My theme on the blog this entire month has been football so I think it’s a great way to send August out. It’s still hot here but everyone is talking about their fantasy football drafts, you can see all of the football gear in stores now, and my own son will be playing football for the first time in a little over a week. It brings to mind sweatshirts and blankets and huddling (pun intended!) in the stands or on your couch, cheering on your favorite team. You can almost smell it in the air! So without further ado, here are 18 crochet football patterns:

We were watching some of the pre-season pro games this past weekend. (Have I mentioned that my son will be playing football for the first time in a little over a week?!) This little football applique is a really easy way to decorate any hat, blanket, or other item to show your love of football. Make hats and blankets in your favorite team’s colors to really show off your team pride. The hat pictured is my Basic Striped Beanie which you can find by clicking here and I made it in the reigning super-bowl champ colors. 🙂

With brown, ch 12



Sc in 2nd ch, *hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, trc in next 5 ch, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in last ch.*


Turn (working stitches along the other side of foundation chain), sc in 1st ch, repeat from * to *.



Sl st into 1st sc. Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.



For laces: Cut about a yard of white. With yarn needle, insert from wrong side of football through the middle of the foundation chain to the right side at the 3rd st (dc), pull yarn through.

Insert yarn needle back down through middle of the foundation chain at the dc on the other side of the football (yarn and needle should now be back on wrong side of football again).


Then work 4 stitches up and over the first stitch in between each of the 5 trc in the football; worked perpendicular to the first stitch made.


Pull the stitches fairly tight. Finish off.





Weave in all ends except for the long brown yarn left to sew onto hat, blanket or any other item.
