Superbowl Beanie

 My husband is a huge New Orleans Saints fan. He was going crazy during that game last weekend. So, he is really excited that the Saints are finally going to the Superbowl. In my opinion, I think the Saints have the best colors in the NFL, and that's as far as my football knowledge goes. With all this excitement, I decided to make him a beanie with a New Orleans Fleur de lis symbol on it. He likes my beanies because they're custom made to fit him perfectly.
 I did some research on tapestry crochet, and I think I might be able to pull it off. I drew the symbol on a piece of graph paper, then I tried to make the same image by filling in the boxes instead of drawing it out. It looks like I'll have to crochet the symbol upside down so it will come out right on the hat. This might take some trial and error. We'll see how it comes out. I'll post pics of my progress later.
