NOTE: this pattern can be customized to any football team. Simply change the colors to your teams, crochet the letters, and look up a template of the logo and trace it into felt.

 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.

SPECIAL STITCHES
 Treble Crochet (tr)- Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (2 loops remaining, Y/O hook & pull thru the 2 remaining loops.
 Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

  Rnd 3: sk st where we sl st in previous rnd, [ch8, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next ch, tr in next st, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in next ch], sl st in next 5 sts, [ch8, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next ch, tr in next st, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in next ch], continue to sl st around the face
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

F/O, secure and weave in the ends.


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     Sew the head to the narrow part of the body.
     Sew the hands on the side and the feet on the bottom side portions.
     With pink yarn or embroidery floss, embroider the spots on the ear by making a line across it.
     With pink felt make an oval for the belly and 2 tiny circles for the feet. Glue them in place and embroider 2 small spots on each foot.
     With black felt, cut little small circles to make the eyes. If you have a hole puncher, use that it makes perfect little eyes. With pink yarn or embroidery floss make a line to make the nose then with black make another line down the center of the nose.
