This adorable baby soccer ball hat knitting pattern combines several easy knitting techniques to knit this fun baby sports hat!
But I PLAYED SOCCER from first grade to high school! A soccer hat knitting pattern should have been the first thing I designed!
(Feel free to call is a futbol hat knitting pattern if you cringe at the word “soccer”, I totally get it)
The hang up was that I could not for the life of me figure out how to get the pattern to knit up easily for you. But I persisted, friends! And I figured out how to get this adorable black white soccer ball pattern using a simple combination of stitches! Nothing too crazy or complex! Yay!
(And yes, I realizes it’s all hexagons and a traditional soccer ball has a mixture of hexagons and pentagons, but… this is pretty darn close, am I right?)
You do need to know how to do some stranded knitting, I used fair isle techniques where I carried the unused color behind the work. But this is super easy-peasy. Once you have the pattern down, you won’t even really need the instructions!
