Football Hat - Cascade 220 Sport

So, it's fall, which means football in a lot of households.  Last spring, I figured out some colors in both Cascade 220 Sport and Cascade 220 Fingering that would work for all of the NFL teams.  I had the idea for a hat that could be adapted for any team colors.

Cascade 220 Sport is one of my favorite yarns to work with - it plays well on the needles, comes in more than 70 colors, and there are 164 yards per 50 grams.


Materials:

  • 2 skeins - Cascade 220 Sport - shown in MC (9573) and CC (8903)
  • US 4 - 16" Circular Needles
  • US 6 - 16" Circular Needles
  • US 6 double points
  • Stitch Marker
  • Yarn Needle
Abbreviations:
  • k - knit
  • p - purl
  • kfb - knit in front and back of same stitch
Using US 4
Cast on 120 (108) stitches with CC (8903)
Join in round - careful not to twist, place marker
P1, [K2, P2], to last 3 - K2, P1

After 2 rounds change to MC (9573)

Cont in 2 x 2 rib for 2" (1.5")

Change to US 6

  1. Ok, I don't like football but I love hockey. Even though the NHL is in lockout right now, I'd love to make up some hats for myself and my friends. How about NHL colors?

  2. Thank you for the football colors! I made a Seahawks hat for my son using the sport weight yarn. I agree with Ellen, I'd love a list of NHL team colors - specifically the Edmonton Oilers. All three of my boys would love hats and mittens with the Oilers colors!
