Crochet Tutorial: Football Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Football Headband

Growing up in the Green Bay area, Wisconsin, USA one cannot help but be a Green Bay Packers fan. They say we bleed green! Well this girl is no exception! With the NFL playoffs right around the corner, I designed this football headband.
Football Headband
Although this is in the colors of my favorite team-Green and Gold, this can be modified to your team colors either in Pro sports, college sports, or high school/middle school sports. This can also just be made into a seasonal headband with no team involvement if you are not the competitive type! Unlike me who wants the Pack to GO ALL THE WAY! I love me some football!

Football Headband
What’s really nice about this headband is that although I made it in the football format, by simply changing up the colors, you can make it in a variety of ways for other sports. Orange and black can be for basketball, white and black can be for soccer, red and white could be for baseball, solid black for hockey, simply by changing the striping and adding a few other embellishments. You can also make this a solid headband and just add a flower that will be cute for anybody on any occasion. Again, creativity knows no bounds!! Have fun with this and be sure to share your finished work on Facebook!!
