We have a few serious football fans in the family, so this Football Fun Set pattern was a natural fit, but the inspiration came from my young nephew who issued a challenge: “Aunt Maria, can you make anything in crochet? Even a football?” Well, I’ve never been one to turn down a challenge and of course, I had to impress my nephew, so here is what we came up with. Yes, I said WE since he helped me with the design and those are his hands you will see in the pattern instructions, holding the ball for stuffing. Now he wants me to make them for all his friends!
The pattern includes: the big full size football which is great for throwing around or as a throw pillow; the small football which is perfect for smaller hands and the beverage cozy, which, let’s face it, we all know is really a beer cozy!
