Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Little Crochet Football (free pattern)

Remember the Newborn Football Hat and Booties I shared a little while back? Well, I had a little more of the same yarn, so I used it to make a little matching football!
My football looks slightly lumpy, doesn't it? Okay... I'll confess. I didn't have any fiber fill stuff, so I stuffed it with cotton balls. There. I said it. I choose to think of it as being resourceful... yeah... that's it... resourceful...

Anyway... let's just get to the pattern.

This pattern has been moved. Please see Important Note above this post.

    1. Thank you, Lauren!
      I think I want to make more with different colors. I need to find some 49er yarn! lol

  2. I LOVE it!! I need to make one for my little guy. A football that's soft, so it won't break things. Oh, and I think you're very resourceful using cotton balls. It worked, and I didn't even notice any lumps. :-)

    1. Thanks, Erin! I had to squish it to try to hide the lumps. lol Glad they aren't too noticeable! :-)

  3. Love this crocheted football! Thanks for sharing the pattern :)

  4. Cute football! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi friend!! I featured this pattern in my fall crochet roundup!

  6. I love this but I'm having trouble with putting the stripe in, mine is lope sided, is there a secret on getting the stripe right??

    1. I KNEW I pinned a tutorial on this. Hopefully this helps you. :-)

    2. Thank you so much..

  7. I made it in under an hour and my son was thrilled...he loves football...Thank you for sharing your pattern.

    1. Ooh! Great idea! I LOVE football to... I just might need to make another one for our tree! ;-)

  9. very patterns I'm making the hat and booties and football for my grandson who is suppose to make his entrance on April 23 thank you for sharing your patterns so well explained and easy to do!!!!!

  10. "Round 2: [sc 1, 2 sc in the next st] around. (9)
    Round 3: [sc 2, 2 sc in the next st] around. (12)
    Round 4: [sc 3, 2 sc in the next st] around. (15)
    Round 5: Sc in each around. (15)
    Round 6: [sc 4, 2 sc in the next st] around. (18)
    Round 7: [sc 5, 2 sc in the next st] around. (21)
    Round 8: Sc in each around. (21)"
    Am I not getting something right? Am I supposed to be repeating the stitches in the [ ] all around? Because if I do that the stitch count at the end (9, 12, 15, etc) does not add up correctly - please help!!

  11. I'm sorry! I figured it out!!!! That's what happens when you try to crochet with a 14 month old and a 10 year old wanting your every moment! So now their in bed and I can concentrate on some me time!
    Thank you for a wonderful blog spot.
    God Bless,

    1. haha! I can definitely relate! My 2 year old is hanging on my arm, yelling, "mom!" and my 5 year old just hit my 13 year old with a Play-doh rolling pin. ;-)
      So glad you figured it out. It's amazing what a few minutes of quiet can do. lol
