New England Patriots Applique

I designed this Patriots logo to attach to a hat I was making as a gift for someone.  I had tons of people ask me for the pattern but, if you are unaware, if is illegal to sell anything that resembles something which has a copyright/tradmark attached to it.  And I’ve been told sports franchises are even stricter than some other companies.  I spoke with a lawyer and he said it should be fine to give the pattern away, as long as I’m not making a profit.  I’ve also drafted up my own legal notice, which I have also attached to the pattern.

***LEGAL NOTICE*** It is illegal to use a registered tradmark, or logo, for profit.  Even the image on a trademark is registered and cannot be copied with the intent to profit – in any form, including yarn.  Therefore, I’m giving this pattern away free, BUT that also means by using this pattern you will not use it for profit.  It is illegal for you to make this and then sell it (seperate or attached to another item).

Helmets LogoThe watermark is because these are my children. I do NOT own the copyright to these logos.

Happy Crocheting!


  1. well, then there is a problem with them making the new cloth ribbons that have patriots logos on them!! i am using it to make things

  2. so very cute

  3. What pattern did you use for you helmet?

    • Ashley, it’s actually a pattern I’m getting ready to release. (had a slight delay between illness and Christmas)

  4. Ok thank you

  5. How did you do the little star? I am having trouble getting a star shape.

    • Carissa, I did corner to opposite corner. I took a couple tries for me to get the right size/shape so it would look right.

  6. Can you make a video? I’m still learning how to crochet and don’t quite get how to do this.

    • I’m sorry Ashley, but I can’t. I did this up as a quick free pattern so I wouldn’t profit from copyright laws.

      • Thats fine I figured it out and tweeked it to make it look exactly like the logo.
