Crochet Football Field Coffee Cozy Pattern

Football Season

Hello crafters! So…I can’t be the only one that obsesses about learning everything I can about new subjects that grab my interest…right? Well, as I’m sure you’ve guessed, this is what happened to me this week. My husband joined a fantasy football league along with his coworkers in his new job. Since this has piqued my curiosity about football, I went on a research-binge on American (and Canadian) football.

I know that wasn’t necessary, but I had too many questions! So here I was several hours of reading later and furiously stitching away to create a new coffee cozy design so I can gift them to my husband and his coworkers as they compete in their league.

Let’s get to it!

Materials

Materials:

  • Sizes “K”, “G”, and “D” hooks
  • Worsted Weight yarn in desired colors

  3. The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.

23. With the white yarn and the tapestry needle, stitch across lines every 2 rows. This will create the yard lines. Note: the end zones are going to overlap at the seam.

Assembly Required
