Soccer Ball Crochet Hat Pattern

When I started selling crochet hats back in 2011 I had a custom request for a soccer ball hat. I searched high and low for a pattern. The only request was for it to not be a plain white hat with black shapes sewn on. I was having to luck! 

So I grabbed my hooks, yarn and my sons soccer ball. I was determined to figure something out. My first hat probably took close to 12 hours to figure out-I came really close to giving up. But the picture above is proof that it turned out and was a hit!

I listed that hat and sold 2 the first day. The even more exciting part was that I also received 3 messages from other crocheters asking where I got the pattern. Once I said I had made it up, they all requested to purchase it. The thought of selling patterns had not crossed my mind. 

Well, it took awhile to decipher my notes, decide on a layout and have a few friends test the pattern for me. It was such a success I even branched out and started an entire pattern designing business. 

Thank you  for all your support over the last 3 1/2 years. I have reviewed and updated this pattern and it is ready for all of you. It comes in sizes from newborn up to child. It also includes options to add a brim or earflaps (see images below). 

I am releasing it for $2 (on Craftsy & Ravelry) through Tuesday February 3, 2015.
