Knit and Crochet Patterns & Yarn Color Recommendations for Super Bowl Sunday XLVII 2013!

January 31st, 2013

Pin It

Super Bowl XLVII is this coming Sunday, have you gotten your craft supplies ready? A great way to support your favorite team is by sporting accessories or clothing with the team’s colors; it’s even better when the item is handmade.

There are 3 days left to make an item to show your team pride on Sunday, but you still have some time! All you need is a super bulky yarn like Hometown USA, or, a small project with a worsted weight yarn like Vanna’s Choice. Besides, if you don’t get to finish it in time, you can always use it for the next football season (or wear the item on Monday!).  You can knit or crochet something as easy as a cozy for your canned beverages, or a simple hat or scarf to show your team spirit.

I thought it would be fun to share a few easy patterns that could be completed in time for the game, and colors in Hometown USA and Vanna’s Choice that match the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens colors – check them out below!

    I love the school colors scarf and hat set.

    Since my team (Houston Texans) didn’t make it to the Super Bowl (this year), I’ll have to go with the Ravens. Why? Because 1) they remind me of the crows here in Huntsville (TX) and 2) I like their colors better. Hehe.

    Will I be crafting? If I’m not asleep, I’ll be studying. Maybe if the game is good I’ll watch and crochet the scrap blanket I’m making for my parent. I have to do something when watching TV.
    Who remembers this: Baltimore. Apple core. Who’s your friend? Me.

    This is weird but I just bought some novelty yarn in sf colors so I guess that makes them “my” team. I’m crocheting a möbius scarf and its going pretty fast.
