World Cup Crafting

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

We are a few days into the 2014 World Cup and excitement abounds!

The FIFA World Cup, often referred to as the World Cup, is an international association football competition by the senior men’s national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport’s global governing body. Fans all over the world tune in and cheer for their teams. This year’s World Cup is being hosted in Brazil, began on June 12th and the finals will conclude on July 13th.

Like most knitters we like to knit for any occasion here at Stitch Geek and thought we would round up some patterns that would be great for World Cup knitting/crocheting.

Hope you enjoy!

First up is the Brazil 2014 World Cup Pet amigurumi. Designer Upa did a wonderful job designing this one, and many others too if you browse her pattern store!

Knit Your Own World Cup Willie!We recently accepted a donation to the museum collection that unearthed a secret hobby for some of our social media followers – knitting! As a museum we love to hear from people who have rare or unique items of memorablia that help us paint a picture of fan culture throughout the ages.
