Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round on dpns

Pattern Description:

Blame the world championship in Brazil for this cute pattern!
My soccer baby hat comes in 2 sizes. And by changing needle size you can also adjust it to preemie size.

The pattern includes Germany and USA version.
I think that many other countries can be adapted from the pattern.

It shows the country name, flag colors and has soccer balls and the flag colors at the crown!

It(tm)s not too difficult too knit.

For normal sizes I would suggest 4-ply Acrylic or Merino or cotton yarn. For preemie sizes 4-ply sock yarn or thin cotton yarn or cotton - sock yarn.

Enjoy and happy soccer knitting!
