Happy September!! We are back with our Tunisian crochet along. If you missed any of the previous patterns, you can always find them by clicking here. Let’s get stitchin’!
I can’t believe that it is September already. The kids have headed back to school, the air is turning cooler, and thoughts turn to all things Fall – apples, leaves changing colors, and football. This month’s pattern is a football because one of my favorite things to do in the fall is to watch football while crocheting (and of course have my pumpkin spice coffee next to me). The pattern is just a plain football shape, but would look great with some added stitching details stitched on in white. And if a football is not your style, don’t forget Kara’s apple pattern from last year.

Tunisian Crochet Abbreviations (you can click on links to review the “how to” for each stitch):
Set up row: Pull up through the back ridge of each ch across — 30 sts (Noted as the first row of circles).
Work pattern as charted above taking note of the following:
- when working your forward pass, the loop on your hook counts as the first stitch (indicated as a circle in the chart)
- the last stitch is made through the two end loops of row below (also indicated as a circle in the chart).
- a basic return pass should be used throughout (i.e., yo, draw through 1 loop, *yo, draw through 2 loops, rep from * across).
- Row 35 should be worked as a bind off row; work Trs bind off (Noted as the last row of circles).
KEY: Circle = first/last stitch; Color = Trs; White = Tks.
