This repeatable motif was designed to make a blanket but would also make a great scarf! Choose your team colors or add them in afterwards as a border or an iron-on decal.

I’m not really much of a sports person, but I do have a few sports-themed patterns on Ravelry. Check them out here.

The most important thing about this design is the adjustable size. Make a scarf, a baby blanket, or a king size blanket! It’s up to you!

Thank you to my testing team: Angela Kermack, Cindy Daling, Divya Tellakula, Linda Bakker, Natalie Caruso, Nessa Miller, & Marijke Laenen.

With one purchase (on Ravelry or Etsy) you’ll have access to 2 pattern files: one for the interlocking crochet method and one for the overlay mosaic crochet method.

Each file contains the full written pattern and a chart.

The mosaic charts have x’s showing where the dropped double crochets go. I also include a chart-reading instruction sheet and a photo tutorial for the optional double envelope border with every pattern.

The interlocking crochet option includes a chart-reading instruction sheet as well.

As a repeatable design, you get to decide how large to make it!

This is a single repeat of the mosaic option, crocheted by Cindy Daling.
