Football Hat

With fall officially here and weather starting to chill, many of you will need something to keep cozy with as you watch your favorite teams this football season! Whether it be NFL or your local school event, these hats are perfect for any chilly autumn evening! Personalize them to fit your team’s colors for extra cheer! 

This hat comes in sizes 0-3 month to teen/adult, which you can find and download the PDF version of through my Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/football-hat-23
