Football Headband / Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Football Headband / Ear Warmer 
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs




The Football headband / Earwarmer Crochet Pattern
 was written about 12 years ago.
I saw some of my Neighbor kids coming home from
 football practice and  decided it was time update the pattern.
 We added lots of pics and a brand new video.


The Headband is very easy and quick to stitch up. 
Make it with your favorite team and sports team colors
 and cheer on your team. So, Moms and dads stay warm
 while watching your kids play football.

It measures about 3 inches wide and 19 inches ling. 
Remember it is very stretchy and will fit up to a
 24 inch head. And it's super easy to adjust to any 
head size needed.

 This week we are stitching up a crayon that can also
 be used as an applique, magnet and bag tag.
These are perfect For School kids and teachers,
just like the pencil.


I actually was not going to do the crayon,

 wanted and needed.
And I love how fun it turned out.

 School Spirit Texting Gloves
 Crochet Pattern

The School Spirit Gloves is the 3rd Crochet Pattern 
In Our School Spirit Series.
I wanted to design a simple, yet cute, series of Crochet
 Patterns for "Back to School".
They are Fingerless, also called, texting gloves. 
They will help keep your hands warm, but your fingers
 are still free to text.

Pattern 1 -

Pattern 2 -
 The School Spirit Beanie Hats
4 Sizes - 
Crochet Pattern And Video LINK


Pattern 3 - 
The School Spirit Texting / Fingerless Gloves
Crochet Pattern And Video LINK

Pattern 4 - Coming Soon

The Idea here was to design some fun items that
 are easy to crochet, crochet up quickly
 and can be stitched up in any school,
 team or favorite colors. 
Each pattern is a written pattern with pictures
 and a video tutorial.

The texting Gloves stitch up super quick and perfect for fall
 and winter when there is a chill in the air. And Again the are
 super cute in any school or team colors.
and the glove will work for both right and left hands. 
So Just Make two exactly the same.
