Join the Scoreboard Knit Along this season and make the Scoreboard Cowl.
So easy and fun: Choose your team's two colors - one will represent your team's scores (MC) and the other will represent the opponent's scores (CC)

As long as supplies last, you'll receive a Scoreboard KAL project bag when you purchase your yarn!
Although we are in Broncos country, we have other team colors too!
