Amigurumi Football - Free Crochet Pattern for the Super Bowl

Today I have a quick and free amigurumi pattern for you today to help you get ready for Super Bowl Sunday!  No time to make it before then?  This would also make an adorable addition to a baby gift :)

This would be a perfect toy for the kids to throw around during the game, or it would even be a cute decoration for your snack table :)  And even if you aren't huge Super Bowl fans, this is still a fun toy to play with inside for the last long weeks of winter!

Supplies

Abbreviations

  • ch: chain
  • SC: single crochet
  • SC2Tog: single crochet two together

 

Finished Size:

Approximately 7"

 

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds.  I recommend using a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch of the round.
  • I embellished my football with non-toxic puffy paint.  You could also use white yarn if you prefer!
  • I started stuffing my football after Round 28.  I gradually added more stuffing until the I reached the end.  I stuffed mine so that it is packed tight!
