Pattern Description:

Here is a cool soccer beanie for small and big boys :)

The beanie has a two-color ribbing, followed by a band of soccer fields, soccer players, No 1 tricots and goalies and a real soccer ball pompon at the top.

I knitted the beanie completely in 4-ply sock yarn.
But you can also use Acrylic or Merino yarn of similar gauge.
For bigger heads please use bigger needle size and/or 5-ply yarn.

The making of the soccer ball pompon is also included in the pattern.

You can also knit it in the colors of your favorite team.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
