I love the tradition of players not shaving during their playoff run as a sign of their dedication, and when my hockey team made the playoffs for only the second time in franchise history, I wanted to play along.  

So, I started my Blue Jackets beard, making it up as I went along. (Photo below)  I knit the base, the part that covers your face in blue.  Then I knit two rows for each game; red (their secondary color) for a Jackets win, or black for a Penguins win.

Unfortunately, my team didnt make it past the first round, so I bound it off in lime green (also a Jackets color!) and started a beard for my first love, the Chicago Blackhawks. (Photo above!)

I did this one a little differently; made the ear loops a little larger, and the beard itself a little narrower.  And I stuck with one color, Blackhawks red, for Chicago.  But I added in another two rows for each period of over time.  (There were a lot of OT periods in this series!)  

This beard stretched thru the Blackhawks series with the St. Louis Blues, the Minnesota Wild, and their ultimate defeat at the hands of the purple-clad LA Kings.  But it was fun while it lasted!

I've seen beards like this, but never in team colors. What a fun idea!
