Simple watch cap in Boise State colors
Actually the orange color isn't accurate. It was the best I could get on the computer. The actual yarn color is similar to the orange on those traffic cones! lol This is for my husband who is a huge Boise State football fan. I used a 100% cotton yarn and basically winged the hat pattern since cotton yarn stretches so very much.

I have to laugh at Jack. He has been big a huge fan for about 8 years now and didn't go to college there, knows no one in Idaho, has never been in Idaho, just loves their football team. I kind of get drawn in because though I am not a big college football fan, I love to see coaches like Chris Petersen who are excellent teachers of not only football, but life. Besides, where else do you have to wear sunglasses to watch a game there with that blue field?

They've had pretty good football and basketball teams for years. They're known as a 'powerhouse' in their league, so anyone who follows college sports would have seen their games.

How I know the colors is that the Boise State Broncos have the same ones as the Denver Broncos. Which I saw a lot of that when I lived in WY, 4 hours from Denver....
