Soccer Hat

I have had four friends announce they were pregnant and due this summer. Three of them are on track and one suffered a miscarriage. The one I sent the baby blanket to has since discovered she’s having a boy.

Her and her husband are big soccer fans, or football everywhere but the US. They even went to South Africa when they hosted the World Cup. So it’s no surprise that she wanted a baby hat that looked like a soccer ball.

I found a cute free pattern here.

Here is my mock up to make sure I could do it.

It totally looks like a brown and red soccer ball. At least it does to me, but then again I’m not a football fan no matter which sport it is.

After she insisted that it has to be in black and white I came up with this.

The white yarn was a different gauge than the black but by making DC instead of SC I was able to match the sizes of the motifs. Over all I’m pleased with it.

Even if I didn’t have a model that fit it right.
