How to Crochet an American Flag Blanket

How to Crochet an American Flag Blanket
How to Crochet an American Flag Blanket

"This American flag blanket is made with soft and cuddly Bernat blanket yarn. In creating this pattern I did the research and made the calculations to ensure that the finished blanket is a correctly-proportioned American flag. I also worked out a hiccup with the star appliqués and developed a special “double-decker” appliqué technique. This free crochet pattern includes valuable tips so that making this beautiful stars and stripes blanket should be smooth sailing for you! This patriotic blanket will brighten any home and would make a great gift for any service member or veteran."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It sure would be nice to have a pattern for this. I can't get it to come up when I click on the link for the pattern.

Hi there, it looks like this blog's domain might have expired. I'll leave the project active for now in case the blog renews, but in the meantime, here is another American Flag afghan pattern you might like: Just copy and paste that URL into your browser. Enjoy!

Thank you Dana. I really appreciate the pattern.

This finished project really looks great on the last picture of the directions. This could easily be a topper for a regular twin bed because of the finished size. I would really not want to fold this but display it somewhere once I put all the work into it.

How knew that it would be such a bother. I would have made the same assumption on crocheting a flag. I am so glad that the poster took the time to share all her information so that if I decide to crochet an American flag blanket I will have all the proper directions.
