Free Crochet Pattern - Football Beanie Chemo Hat
Slouchy Football Hat. Originally I wrote the pattern as a beanie but then revised it for the slouchy version. I just found the original beanie version, so here it is. It's written for one size only. If you can do a little math, you can adjust this pattern to fit just about any head size.
Circumference = 3.141592 X diameter
Please note, this pattern is copyrighted and may not be reproduced or redistributed. Completed hats may NOT be sold as the distribution of this free pattern is to promote awareness of the need for fun children’s chemo hats. Feel free to make as many as you like for personal use or for charity. Please don't sell completed items from my free patterns as they are written to help promote charity, not for the profit of others. There are plenty of independent designers (myself included) who allow completed items to be sold from their commercial patterns.
