A Little Ohio State Fan

I had a special request from a dear old friend of mine from middle school. My friend Megan had asked me to crochet her baby boy, Jack, an Ohio State Helmet Hat. I was so thrilled to have the chance to crochet something for a little boy. I have been crocheting pink; flowery; girly things for awhile now so this opportunity was refreshing and fun.

I think my favorite is the buckeye leaf "stickers" on the side.
On a real Ohio State helmet, they have to be earned. ;)

I saw where you were from and thought no that can't be Ohi, then I came to your blog and saw your Ohio State hat. We live in Tipp City. Its a small world! I just wanted to say hi!

We are practically neighbors indeed as we reside in West Milton...which is about 10-15 minutes from Tipp City! ;) Thanks so much for stopping in and for the sweet compliments about my hats. I really appreciate it and good luck with you upcoming lalaloopsy party!

Hello Hannah!

I apologize for not responding sooner. For some reason I did not see this comment until now. For the buckeye leaf stickers, I just crocheted a basic circle pattern and then embroidered the buckeye leaves onto it using green sewing thread/floss. Here is the basic circle pattern I used....

Starting with either an f or g hook.

Make a magic circle
sc 4 into ring (4 sts)
2 sc in each st around. sl st into next st and fasten off. (8 sts)

Congrats to you!! Good luck creating your football helmet hat, and happy crocheting!

Sincerely,
Lindsay
