Baseball Hat:
Crochet the first three rows in white yarn. The 4th row is crocheted in the back loops (of the 3rd row) to make the edge of the ball appear more noticeable. Apply the ball pattern using a backstitch (with a contrasting thread).
Basketball Hat:
Crochet the first four rows in yarn that is similar to the color of a basketball... i.e., pale orange. The 5th row is crocheted in the back loops (of the 4th row) to make the edge of the ball appear more noticeable. Apply the ball pattern using a backstitch (with a contrasting thread).
Soccer Ball Hat:
Work up to 1st row in black. Attach white for rows 2 and 3. Row 4 will need 2 extra white stitches worked in to achieve the pattern. (Just do an extra 2dc in the same st on each side. Row 4 is worked with **6 dc in white, then 4dc in black**; then repeat pattern between ** 4 more times. (50 st). Change colors. Row 5 is crocheted in the back loops (of the 4th row) to make the edge of the ball appear more noticeable.
Football Hat:
Follow directions for rows 1-12 using team colors. To make the football (using brown yarn):

Row 1: ch7. Sc in 1st ch from hook, hdc in 2nd ch, dc in 3rd ch, hdc in 4th ch, sc in 5th ch... around. Ch where you need a little extra 'give' at the pointy ends of the football to make it lie flat.

Row 2: Sc twice in 1st st, hdc twice in 2nd st, dc twice in 3rd st, hdc twice in 4th st, sc twice in 5th st... around. You may need to omit one or two stitches to make the football lie flat.

Row 3: Follow pattern as for rows 1 and 2, increasing where needed to obtain the football shape. The football on the hat in the photo is about3" x 4". You can pull it into a football shape as you stitch it onto the hat. However, before stitching the football onto the hat, add the 'seam' (+++) to the center of the football by adding backstitches in a contrasting color.


All of the hats can be stitched in any combination of team or favorite colors.

These sample hats were made and donated by Donna Casella.
