Football Scarf Starter Kit Instructions


Football season is drawing near, have you prepared your snacks yet? If not, we’ve got you covered, but only if you don’t mind it being a little high in fibers, hehe! Being the crafty community we are, we’re always looking for ways to incorporate our hobby into nearly everything we do, so why would football be any different?!

One of our favorite phrases around here is “Maker’s Choice”, and boy, are we about to give you a bunch of 'em! Inspired by the talented Knit Purl Hunter and her Scoreboard Cowl (if cowls are more your cup of tea), we’ve put together some of the most popular football team colors to make the Football Scarf Starter Kit! This project is sort of like a choose-your-own-adventure, and it all depends on where you start!
Yarn we’re using:
Just as a quick reminder, this kit is designed to be a starter kit for your team’s journey through the season, so we’ve included 2 balls of your team’s main colors. Given how well the teams perform, you may need to snag another ball or two, which should be available on our website under the Cascade 220 Superwash yarn!

Needles/Hooks we’re using:
US Size 7 (Straights or 16” circulars)

- - -

Materials Needed:
- Stitch Markers (If you’re knitting in the round)
- Waste Yarn (If you are using the provisional cast on)
Instructions for all versions:
One color represents your team for the entire season, while the other color represents the opposing team.

Short Version:
Every time your team scores, knit or crochet 2 rows in your team’s designated color.
Every time the opposing team scores, knit or crochet 2 rows in the other color.

Long Version:
Every time your team scores, knit or crochet as many rows as the number of points they scored.
Every time the opposing team scores, knit or crochet as many rows as the number of points they scored.

Favorite/Best Season Version:
Listen, we get it. Sometimes our teams don’t perform as well as we wished they did. Maybe they just dropped the ball on a few games and got some pretty cruddy scores. If you have a favorite season in mind where this wasn’t the case, you can skip the anticipation of the next row and just make your project to record that season! Use these sites to figure out the record from the season, kick your feet up, and knit or crochet to your heart’s content!

Alright, time to get into the knitty gritty of it all!
