Team Sports Mini-Hats!
mini-hats, made in the colors of several professional football teams ( yes, we
are Denver Bronco fans!), were knitted on my knitting machine. I began
with a small mock-ribbing, then changed colors and knitted the 'body' of the
hat. I would simply pull forward
the fairaisle needles by hand to add the name in the contrasting color. I would then change colors again if I
needed to and decrease stitches using the lace carriage. I would draw the end of the yarn up
through the remaining stitches and draw the end tight. I then used this piece of yarn to stitch
together the back of the hat. A pom-pom was added to the top in the appropriate two or
I made them for such a variety of teams because I was selling them at
craft sales that year. They are printed with the name of the team, or with a person's n
ame. They can be used as Christmas ornaments
or as refrigerator magnets. I
either made them with a loop of yarn coming off the pom-pom or stuck a magnet to
the back. I also wore mine
safety-pinned to my coat lapel. I
would stuff it with a Kleenex to make it stand up nicely. A couple of people having 'Bronco
parties' would commission me to make them with the names of each of their guests
so they could give them as gifts.
I also made some of
these in local school colors and personalized them with the students'
names. I really had a lot of fun
making these. I could make one in about six
