This year I am participating in the 2018 Christmas in July Crochet Along, hosted by Marie of Underground Crafter and Pia of Stitches n Scraps.

When I saw the opening to join this crochet along, I got really excited and popped over to sign up. Most spots were already filled, but this month happened to be open, which is inspired by the men in our lives. My challenge was to design something that could be worked up quickly for gift giving, and something a guy would like to receive - the first part not bad, but the second part not such an easy task!

Time went on, and I was getting nervous that I wouldn’t have anything ready when I remembered this hat. I made this hat two Super Bowls ago, and wore it to my nieces flag football games, but never published the pattern. Football + Men = Success! Hehe. AND! This pattern is sized from newborn to adult large, so you can make the whole family matching hats :)
