Aunt Nana’s Crochet: Indianapolis Colts Inspired hat

Go Colts-HatMy dad would’ve loved this Indianapolis Colt’s hat. He was a tried and true blue Colts fan. Admittedly, I have not really watched the Colts religiously since they won the Super Bowl in 2007.  My nephew, Sean was just a baby then, and living with me at the time with his mother. As a family, we watched the Colts games and cheered them on in our blue!

So, I made Sean a Colt’s hat. I’ll make Barry one, too. It just seems to have a little more meaning for me. I know my dad would have loved this hat! Go Colts!

GO COLTS! Horseshoe Crochet for your pumpkin :)

Indianapolis Colts pumpkinIt’s game day for the Indianapolis Colts! I searched the web for a crochet horseshoe for a Colt’s emblem and found a video pattern. I found this free You Tube Video tutorial for How to Crochet a Horseshoe by Sabrina at Havoc Mayhem Creations.

I crocheted a Colts hat for my nephew, and it really needed a horseshoe! This is an extra large pumpkin, and chaining 40 makes one  giant horseshoe! Luckily, you can crochet this embellishment really quick. I couldn’t waste the effort, so I used some pins and attached it to a pumpkin. 🙂

Stay tuned for my Aunt Nana’s Crochet Go Colts hat!
