Q&A with lpinchin

NitaTDesigns asked:
I am a part of a football loving family that would just adore these in their favorite team's color. Nice!!
lpinchin answered:
Thank you. I love the Blue and Gold in the Winnipeg Blue Bomber Baby hat. Unfortunately, me next grand-baby isn't due until late November and football season is almost over by then here in Canada. LOL
mammad asked:
thanks for the idea !
lpinchin answered:
This one has been a big hit with the boys. They won't wear anything too cute but this one they like.
DebDew asked:
Is there any way to get the pattern for the child's football hat?
lpinchin answered:
I put the link to the pattern above. Just use a worsted weight yarn and a 5 or 5.5 mm hook to get a size that will fit a child about 4-10 years old. You might want to add an extra row or two in length before putting the flaps on if it is for a larger head child. Hope that helps.
sprec63 asked:
Can you please send the instructions or link again, I cannot open the link above
lpinchin answered:
I'm sorry you were unable to open the link. Just google "free crochet child earflap hat pattern" and it will pop up. Then just use my picture as a guide to make it look like a football. I did my first ro of contrast striping on my first row after the increase rows. Both stripes are two rows of hdc. The second stripe is the last two rows before beginning the ear flaps. I did the single crochet border in the main colour. Hope all this helps!
