Unofficial Miami Dolphins Beanie

They may not be a contender in the 2011 Super Bowl XLV game slated for Sunday, but my husband has always loved the Miami Dolphins. I knit a beanie for him at Christmas using his favorite team’s colors.

Since I could not find a knitting pattern for a Miami Dolphins beanie, I modified Kathy Lang’s Beanies for the Brave pattern found on Ravelry (her pattern may also be found on the web, see Resources below).

This beanie is not approved/endorsed/licensed or otherwise sanctioned by the NFL people-in-charge-of-such stuff. It has, however, been approved by my husband—in the end, that’s what is important to me.

Cascade 220 100% Peruvian Highland Wool (ordered through Unwind, the Yarn Shop) was used in colors approximating those of the Miami Dolphins. You can change the colors to reflect another team—of course, that’s unofficial and my husband wouldn’t like it---shhhh.

  • Color A: 1 skein Cascade 220, color #7812 (“Lagoon”)
  • Color B: 1 skein Cascade 220, color #9542 (“Blaze”)
  • Color C: 1 skein Cascade 220, color #2404 (“Atlantic”)
  • Color D: 1 skein Cascade 220, color #8505 (“White”)

One of the young men working on the remodel of our house saw me knitting the beanie and asked for one, too. So here is Jason’s finished beanie, my thank-you for the hard work he’s put forth to do a quality job for us.
