Want ideas on how to combine your school colors? Stripes are always in style for hats and scarves. You can also knit or crochet a project in a solid color, then use your contrasting shade to duplicate stitch the initials of you or your school. For a tweedy effect, hold both shades together (like in our Sumptuous Tweed Scarf).

What are your school colors? How do you show your school spirit through yarncrafting? Let us know in the comments.

    Appalachian State black and gold!  It gets cold in Boone, NC, so we need lots of hats and scarves.  Someday I'll have to crochet a nice, warm stadium blanket, too.

    Why stop with stripes and initials? I designed my own version of the iconic Hog hat for my littlest Razorback fans.

    You do not have a very good green for Michigan State Spartans.  I have used the ones you show, but they are not quite right.  Go GREEN Go White!

    Scarlet and crimson are both used by many schools. Your scarlet does not look right, and there is nothing for crimson. You need far more choices in green too. Where is the forest green, like Michigan State? You don't even cover all the NFL teams, I don't see any teal for Miami Dolphins nor the deep purple for the Minnesota Vikings. Please enlarge your color choices.
