It’s a sweet and simple little football. It’s the perfect size to keep on your desk at work, to turn into an ornament, or perhaps even to turn into a baby rattle. I used about 60 yards of Martha Stewart Crafts Extra Soft Wool Blend (a worsted weight yarn which has tragically been discontinued) for the base of the football and white scrap yarn for the lacing and stripes. You can substitute with any worsted weight yarn. I used a US size G6 4mm crochet hook. You’ll also need some fiberfill to stuff the football and a yarn needle to stitch it together and add the stripes.
