Football Amigurumi

I'm in a fantasy football league with my husband and his cousins. I actually won last year! The previous winner mailed me our trophy (it was a ceramic pig, for some reason), but he didn't pack it well, and it pretty much shattered in a million pieces. Of course my first thought was to make my own trophy! We all live in different parts of the country (California, Arizona, Indiana and New York), so having to send the trophy in the mail is something that will almost definitely happen. My plan is to make an amigurumi Lombardi Trophy, and here is the football for the top. It's a nice size, that can be fun to toss around the house.

If you like this pattern, check out my other ones! You can find them here: http://tomboynanny.blogspot.com/p/crochet-patterns.html
Materials needed:
Size G crochet hook (4.0 mm)
Worsted weight yarn in brown and white (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee and White)
Tapestry needle
Stitch marker
Scissors
Fiberfill stuffing

Notes:
Gauge isn't important. This is made in continuous rounds, so do not join or flip your work.


Stitches used:
Magic Ring
Single crochet (sc)
Increase (2sc)
Invisible decrease (invdec)

Instructions:
1. Make a Magic Ring with 6 sc stitches
2. 2sc around  (12)
3. (2sc, sc 3x) 3x (15)
4. (2sc, sc 4x) 3x (18)
5. (2sc, sc 2x) 6x (24)
6. (2sc, sc 7x) 3x (27)
7. (2sc, sc 8x) 3x (30)
8. (2sc, sc 4x) 6x (36)
9. (2sc, sc 11x) 3x (39)
10. (2sc, sc 12x) 3x (42)
11. (2sc, sc 13x) 3x (45)
12. Sc around (45)
Change to white
13. - 14. Sc around (45)
Change to brown
15. - 26. Sc around (45)
Change to white
26. - 27. Sc around (45)
Change to brown. Take about 2 feet of white yarn, and sew in the stitches. Start with a long one going the length of the ball, and then a few over that. Begin stuffing the football with fiberfill, and continue doing so as you go.
28. Sc around (45)
29. (Invdec, sc 13x) 3x (42)
30. (Invdec, sc 12x) 3x (39)
31. (Invdec, sc 11x) 3x  (36)
32. (Invdec, sc 4x) 3x (30)
33. (Invdec, sc 8x) 3x (27)
34. (Invdec, sc 7x) 3x (24)
35. (Invdec, sc 2x) 6x (18)
36. (Invdec, sc 4x) 3x (15)
37. (Invdec, sc 3x) 3x (12)

Fasten off tightly, and weave the end in.

  1. Love your idea of a crochet Lombardi trophy! And, of course, the football itself. Thanks for posting it. It would have been a lovely surprise for my late husband. Now, however, I get to keep it for myself - and MY team!

    1. Thank you Brenda!
      Sadly, the Lombardi Trophy was never made, since it came out looking silly. But I'm glad you like the football!

    1. It means 2sc, then sc in the next three stitches. Repeat that 3 times. At the end you will have 15 stitches.
