17 FREE Knit and Crochet Game Day Patterns

With the Super Bowl coming up soon I thought it would be the perfect time to round up some of the cute football related patterns out there. Some are knit and some are crochet so I hope that you find something that you like as a great game day pattern. Work them up now before the game!

On the day of the game, don’t miss the Game Day Mystery Make Along! Each year, I host a stitch-along for knitters and crocheters. Clues are released throughout the day, and you don’t know what you’re making before you start! Find out more about the Game Day Mystery Make Along!
