Here it is, the start of the College Yarn Team Color Match up.
Of course I went with Cascade! I love them! But I did you one better than with the NFL List, I've matched up the teams to Cascade 220, and to Cascade 220 Superwash.
Why? Because if you have the good fortune to go to a stadium that isn't dry, you may have a beer related mishap and need to wash whatever lovely hand knit. You don't want your team spirit to shrink in the wash do you?
So, listed first are the 220 options and second are the Superwash options. Again, this is done to the best of my ability, and for the love of team sports and knitting.

Now, is it the Big 10 because there are 11 teams? Or perhaps I messed up somewhere?
What? You're school isn't listed here? Neither is mine. For local Kzoo people, I'm doing the MAC like a week from now. But I'll throw you a bone...

So, again a big thanks to the fine folks at Cascade for the big rainbow of colors. If you need some Team Colors check these yarn stores with HUGE Cascade selections:
Your Local Yarn Store-Battle Creek, MI
Thread Bear Fiber Arts-Lansing, MI
No, I'm not getting payola, or anything from any of these places, they really do have a great selection of the colors you NEED.
