Get the full knitting pattern inspired by Taylor Swift’s 87 Beanie that she wore while supporting boyfriend Travis Kelce at his football game.
My Sideline Spirit Hat Knitting Pattern is inspired by the handmade beanie gifted to Taylor by Kut the Knit, which was crocheted in Travis’ Kansas City Chiefs team colors, complete with his jersey number embroidered on its brim.
Knowing that Swiftie Knitters would love to create a similar version for themselves to sport, I’ve rushed this design to the top of my list to produce for you. Whether you’re proudly wearing or lovingly gifting, this sporty knitted beanie will be a prized accessory for years to come.

• Main Color (White): 113 yards
• Contrasting Color (Red): 17 yards
Knitting Needles: Size 9 US (5.5 mm) 16-inch circular needle and set of 4 double-pointed needles or size needed to obtain gauge
