The Crocheted Los Angeles Dodgers Logo can be utilized in multiple ways including in a scarf, beanie hat, blanket, or garment. It is perfect to include in a gift for any LA Dodgers Baseball lover!
To be honest with you, I am not a huge baseball person. To me, the games seem really long. Now I was a golfer, so I understand that long sports are okay, but I don’t even like watching golf! So there, it is said.
My husband, on the other hand, loves baseball: playing and watching. He grew up in the bay area and is a SF Giants fan. He embraces the rivalry with his best friend’s team, the LA Dodgers. He has a healthy hatred for the A’s. I already did the Giants logo, so now it is time for those Dodgers!
I created this pattern as part of my “logo” series. Some logos lend themselves better to crochet design due to be more “blocky” in nature, curvy logos are harder, also those with many colors. Anyway, this one turned out great with the classic LA in blue.
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.)
So for this pattern, I stuck with the two primary LA Dodgers colors: blue and white.
Below are the pattern and the video tutorial.
Let’s get on with HOW to actually make the Crocheted Los Angeles Dodgers Logo!
First, let’s talk materials.
I used “I Love This Yarn” medium weight acrylic yarn from Hobby Lobby.
About 0.8 oz white and 0.2 oz blue. A very small amount, nowhere near a full skein.
I use a size H/5.0 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 by 5.5 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 19, turn
