Football Beanie Pattern

I'm sorry to have to post this. Unfortunately, there are too many people using my pattern to make money online when I specifically stated do not sell my pattern or items made with my pattern online. (I stated finished items may NOT be sold online...and I have seen exact copies everywhere online!) So, I regret to take this down from my blog, but it just irks me to no end that people will be so dishonorable. I had been making this hat for a few years and never once saw something online like it. That is why I decided to add it in the first place. I have, however, decided to sell MY pattern for $1.50 in PDF format on Ravelry.com. Again, I'm sorry to all those who respected my pattern. It's the bad apples that ruin it for everyone else. ~April

  9. I love this little hat, and will be making it for friends that are having a little boy this year.

    I'm new to crocheting, and was wondering what FO meant? Also, any tips for a newbie as to how to change colors?

    Thanks!!

  11. AnaBeatriz, FO means to finish off. There are lots of tips and how to's on crochetpatterncentral.com

    I also love to use the info Teresa provides on her site:
    http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com
    She even has a section for newbies and provides videos for many of the techniques.

    I will try to find more detailed info on the techniques and get back to you, if that's ok.

I so wanted to make one of these for my 1 year old but I needed to figure out the whole sizing and where to place the white 'stitching' but low and behold you already figured it out for me, hooray! I will probably make these for my friend's sons, too. I found you through ravelry also.

  38. I'm expecting a baby boy this winter and I'd like to make hi one of these hats. I'd also like a copy of the pattern, if you're inclined to provide it.

    Thank you,

  39. Thank you for having provide this pattern online some time ago and thankfully I had printed it out. I absolutely love the look and fit of these for both my toddlers (girl and boy). I guess someone that works for TSA loved your patterned football beanie also since they were so inclined to help themselves to my son's hat. My daughter's hat made it home (to her's I added a large flower to the side to give it some feminity). I too have seen a whole lot of this hat on etsy.com and probably other places. I promise that I have not sold this hat nor pattern to anyone! I just made 2 more hats, now I just need to add the lacing to the front. http://pinterest.com/pin/63191200992993740/ and with color variations, http://pinterest.com/pin/63191200992993739/. Thanks again for having shared!

  40. I have been searching for a pattern to make my husband a Raiders beanie. I finally thought I had found a site that would have what I needed, and what do you know I failed. I would consider purchasing this pattern if there was a picture of the beanie to help me make this important (to me) decision. If you would like to send me a picture my email is . Merry Christmas
