The Crocheted Indianapolis Colts Logo can be utilized in multiple ways including in a scarf, beanie hat, pot holder, blanket, or garment. It is perfect to include in a gift for any Colts fan!
I am a football fan. Mostly college…Nebraska to be specific, though sometimes we may not want to claim them, I do love my Huskers!
This being said, pro football is huge and I enjoy watching the games. I do not have a specific team I root for, but I know that the faithful fans will sport the gear no matter how good or bad the team is doing, just like us Huskers fans. Today I created the Colts Logo in Crochet.
I created this pattern as part of my “logo” series. Some logos lend themselves better to crochet design due to being more “blocky” in nature, curvy logos are harder, and also those with many colors. This one did have a long smooth curve, but it wasn’t too hard to create.
You can use this pattern block in a scarf or a blanket. You can also take the logo part of the pattern and use it on a beanie hat or on a shirt. This is a pattern for only the logo, so the possibilities are endless!
To make a logo like this, you can use a grid (like graph paper) and fill in boxes in the shape of the logo. Then you will use basically a tapestry crochet technique to follow the pattern.
This means you will do all single crochet, and you will use 2 (or more colors), while carrying the working yarn along while you are crocheting. Each “block” of your graph paper is one single crochet.
When you get to a “filled” block (like for your logo), you change colors, then change back for each “empty” block. You do not cut your yarn, you just continue to work over the yarn, changing colors frequently, until you are done with the color-changing sections, then you can cut your yarn and have the tail weaved in (either by working over or weaving in after.)
For this pattern, I stuck with light grey and blue, but you can vary the colors as desired!
Below are the pattern and the video tutorial.
Let’s get on with HOW to actually make the Crocheted Indianapolis Colts Logo!
First, let’s talk materials.
I used “I Love This Yarn” medium weight acrylic yarn from Hobby Lobby.
About 0.6 oz light grey and 0.4 oz blue. A very small amount, nowhere near a full skein.
I use a size G/4.25 mm aluminum crochet hook.
You’ll want something to cut your yarn (scissors, nail clippers, etc) and a tapestry needle to weave in ends.
You’ll also need either the written pattern (keep reading) or the chart version of the pattern found at the bottom of the page.
*Note: The chart version is a pictorial representation of where color changes happen in the pattern. If you prefer this versus the written format, go to the chart. To use the chart work from bottom right and go back and forth in rows.
Finished size: 6.5 x 6.75 inches
Stitch Abbreviations Used
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
cc = Change colors
- At the end of each row, I do not chain one and then turn, I just turn and go straight into my first sc. I find that I get a straighter edge that way. Feel free to chain one, then turn if that is what you prefer.
- When changing colors during the single crochet stitch: yarn over, insert hook, pull up loop, change colors then pull a loop through both loops on hook.
Foundation chain: in color A-ch 24, turn
- Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, turn (23 sc)
