This project is great for gifting or keeping as a souvenir from your favorite team or game. So grab your yarn and hook, and let’s get started!
- G 4mm crochet hook
- Brown & White worsted weight yarn size 4 medium bulky (I used "I Love This Yarn")
- Keychain accessory
- Tapestry Needle
- Stitch Marker
Stitch Key (US terms)
- Magic circle - MC
- Chain - CH

- Single Crochet Decrease -DEC
Final measurements for this football are 4" by 2" (Metal keychain will add another 1-2 inches)
This pattern is crocheted in a continuous round, you will not be joining each round.
I like to start this pattern with a magic circle. If you are more comfortable starting with a CH 3 (then SS into first chain to create a small circle) please feel free to do so.
Single Crochet Increase: Work 2 SC into the same stitch
Single Crochet Decrease: Insert hook into the front loop of the next stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Insert hook into front loop of next stitch. Yarn over and pull up another loop. Now, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook.
Change yarn color: Change to next color of yarn when working last single crochet of round (this change will be specified in parentheses.) On last SC, insert hook into stitch pull up a loop, now yarn over with new color of yarn and pull the new color through both loops on your hook. Gently pull both tails of yarn to tighten join. Now continue crocheting with new color.
Final stitch count for each round is noted by the number stated in parentheses at the end of each round
I have also included the YouTube tutorial if you are more of a visual learner.
