Are you looking for an easy crochet football pattern? You’re in the right place! This Tunisian crochet football pattern works up super quick and uses only one-skein of Lily Sugar N Cream in warm brown and some scrap yarn in white! The Tunisian crochet football-themed pattern was originally inspired by my nephew who will be arriving this December! My cousin and his wife are big-time College Football fans, so much so that their baby is officially a Boomer Cougar (a product of Oklahoma Sooners and Houston Cougars)! This pattern is for a Tunisian crochet football pattern that can be made as an applique, face or body scrubby, or as a stuffie or toy! You will work flat, embroider some eyes and a smile on the front, and then sew pieces together. You can add some polyfil before closing all the way up to make it into a stuffie. I’ve also added a band at the back so you or your little one can hold onto the ball more securely! Video tutorials are included for all stitches.

Crochet Hat Pattern – Inspired by Hat Not Hate

Looking for a free crochet hat pattern? Here's a unique design I've created in honor of the Hat Not Hate campaign by Lion Brand in child to adult sizes.

Pin it Now and Make it Late

Looking for a free crochet hat pattern? Here's a unique design I've created in honor of the Hat Not Hate campaign by Lion Brand in child to adult sizes.

Are you looking for a fun free crochet hat pattern? I created this super cool design for hat not hate! There are still a couple of weeks left to send in your blue hats to support the anti-bullying campaign by Lion Brand! You can head to the Ravelry download link by clicking the button above!

I experienced bullying in various forms while I was growing up. Sometimes it was hurtful words and other times I remember being hurt physically. I used to be shamed for the way I looked and for being the only South Asian kid in the class. That’s why this initiative means a lot to me. This initiative is relevant to the backlash POC makers are currently experiencing for speaking out against injustice.

This design comes from a place of unity. It’s important to “put yourself in another person’s shoes” so you can see the world from their perspective. Similarly, we have to “try each other’s hats on” to truly understand one another. This is the only way we can show each other compassion and move forward.

Free Crochet Hat Pattern –

Disclaimer: This pattern has not been tested so please let me know if you find any errors! I’ll fix them right away!

The way the pattern is written, the colorwork will be on the front of the hat and there is no shaping involved. It is a tubular/cat-ear type hat as modeled by me! Bub’s hat is the first prototype. That’s why the heart is made with both contrasting colors which were difficult to crochet. As a result, I decided to use one color to make the heart!

Notes:

This pattern uses a few Tunisian crochet techniques. Use the following video tutorials as needed:

  • Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions.
  • The following instruction are implied:
    • The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st.
    • Always TSS in the last st of the row, being sure to work under both loops of the st.
  • Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass in the same color.
    • Return Pass Instructions: Ch 1, *yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook

Mompreneur life – How it all came together

Mompreneur Who? – Craft as Therapy

I learned how to knit in 2010, around the time my father passed away. When I think back, I realize that it was a big part of my healing process. I am so grateful I had my aunt there to teach me the basics. I found it so peaceful knitting row after row and somewhere in between I accepted that my dad was in a better place. At this point, knitting was for healing and I never thought I would become a mompreneur.

As time passed, I honed in on these skills by watching a LOT of YouTube videos! I also tried my hand at crochet. Although it requires just 1 hook, I found crochet to be more difficult. I took a break but never entirely gave up. When I came back to it, I got the hang of it and improved over time!

Mompreneur Life – My First Design

Fast forward a few years and I got awesome news: I was going to have Bubs! This meant I could finally make something for my own tiny baby! Being a Spring baby, he became my June Bug and I decided to make a bug-themed blanket for him. I designed the caterpillar applique because I didn’t like any of the designs online. When I was done, I loved how he turned out! I know there are a ton of mistakes which show up here. For instance, my circles were messy as I hadn’t perfected the magic circle technique. Also, I could have done a better job in sewing on the applique. Despite all that, I loved that I was able to take something that was in my mind and make it a reality. It was a one-of-a-kind caterpillar made for my June Bug to come!

This little guy, #noorsknitapillar is what inspired me to become a mompreneur! He's the very first thing I designed for my own June bug!
My caterpillar applique, my first ever design made for my lil‘ June Bug to come! Here, I used Lion Brand’s Pound of Love in Honeybee, Antique White, and Bluebell and used Lily Sugar’N Cream in Warm Brown 

This is when I knew I wanted to share my talent with the world beyond making gifts for my loved ones! It worked out perfectly because I wanted to stay home with Bubs for the first couple of years. I opened up my Etsy shop in October of 2017, just a few months after Bubs turned one!

Mompreneur Life – Growing with My Business

After almost a year of having my business and learning from the maker community, I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to focus exclusively on design. Read more here about why I chose children’s pieces as my design focus! With this shift in my business, I really wanted my story to show in a way that people would know my why as soon as they saw my logo. That’s where my Knit-A-Pillar and Hooker-Fly come in. The Knit-a-pillar represents the caterpillar applique which was my first design and the crochet hook butterfly adds to my focus on clothes and accessories for lil‘ bugs till they become butterflies!

Mompreneur Life – Noor’s Knit-a-Pillar

In honor of my blog launch, I created a free pattern for this little guy. You can find the free pattern below or head to my Ravelry store for the pdf. The PDF includes written instructions and a full video tutorial for how to make the caterpillar applique and how to sew it onto a finished project! You can access this pattern and video tutorial on Ravelry by clicking here! If you end up making it, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #noorsknitapillar and link back to my blog! I can’t wait to see which projects he’ll be cutely crawling into!

Noor’s Knit-A-Pillar Applique Pattern:

With Color A, make a magic circle and dc 12 into the circle, sl st into the top of the first ch 2. Pull tight and close the circle. Leave a 15 in. tail and cut. Repeat once.
With Color B, make a magic circle and dc 12 into the circle, sl st into the top of the first ch 2. Pull tight and close the circle. Leave a 15 in. tail and cut. Repeat once.

Sew on the 4 circles to your finished knitted or crocheted piece by aligning them as shown in the pictures above.
