I had asked on Instagram if anyone could guess why I might get in trouble for the colors of the Rival Crochet Infinity Scarf, but no one was brave enough to guess or maybe my clues weren’t clueish enough!
In our house, we are Ohio State Buckeyes fans. Now, I’m a fan by marriage but hubs was born and raised in Ohio so his blood figuratively, and somewhat literally I suppose, runs scarlet and gray. Since Ohio State and the University of Michigan have pretty much the biggest rivalry ever, I thought I’d be in big trouble for making a scarf in Michigan colors.
Well, apparently team colors are an area where my man pays attention to nuances. Go figure. I was informed that Michigan’s colors are blue and maize and since the scarf is navy and yellowstone, I’m in the clear. Phew.

This is a great scarf to do in team colors no matter who you are cheering for and it looks classy enough to wear beyond the tailgate party.
Let me know in the comments if you are watching (read: crocheting while vaguely listening to) college football and which team colors you will choose!
