Watch football for any length of time, and you’ll see this very hat being sported on the sidelines… Or the non-knitter’s version at least!
These hats, topped with a pom-pom, are very popular among players and fans alike. You can knit it using your high school, college, or favorite national team’s colors; or just play with color however you like.
This pattern includes instructions on how to make a sideline beanie of your very own, customized to your favorite team! The stripe pattern is spelled out for you, complete with little check boxes to mark off your progress as you go. Also included are directions to make the pom-pom, and a little knit-as-you-go trick to create a neat, tidy, folded hem on the brim without sewing.
This hat is knit in the round, with a special reverse stockinette brim, but there’s not a single purl stitch required. You will need 3 colors of lace weight yarn, but don’t worry, it’s thick, warm, and knits up quickly using the technique in the pattern.
Happy knitting! ♥
