Knit Your School Spirit

High school and college students across the country are heading back to school. And soon the seasons will change and they’ll need hats, scarves, gloves and sweaters to keep warm. Combine that need with the desire to show school spirit and you’ve got the perfect reason to knit! Check out these awesome school spirit knitting patterns to get inspired.


School Spirit Hoodie

Be fashionable and show off your school spirit with this sweet knit hoodie pattern. Use stripes or make the sleeves, hood, and edging one color and the body another. Either way, you wind up with an adorable sweater you can be proud to wear in the school halls. Add a little visual appeal with our worsted weight tweeds.

Game Day Hat

Watching (American) football games gets chilly. Keep your head and ears warm with this school spirit hat. Slightly more complex than your typical striped hat, elements of fair isle are included, but still simple enough for a new knitter. There’s also some great texture elements that will have all your classmates wanting one too!

Stadium Blanket

If a hat isn’t enough to keep you warm, check out this stadium blanket. It’s the perfect way to display your school colors and keep warm. It’s also big enough to huddle under with a close friend or loved one. Our semi-solid yarn would look great with this project.

Spirit Hat with Pompom and Earflap

This pattern is great! You can make it in sizes infant through large headed adult so the whole family can display their support for your school team. The earflaps are perfect for those extra cold days and the chin tie is helpful when the wind kicks up. And honestly, who doesn’t love pompoms?

School Spirit Scarf and Hat

There’s nothing like a matching hat and scarf. Knit these with Thick & Quick yarn from Lion Brand in your school’s colors for a fast way to stay warm and show off your school spirit. If you’re feeling ambitious, try making a bunch of these selling them as a fundraiser for your team.


It’s easy to show off your school spirit with these great knitting patterns. Your friends, teammates, and coaches may just want you to make some for them, too. So get those knitting needles ready!
