Here are a few of my favorite patriotic ePatterns to crochet:
The star-spangled bow tie on this adorable crocheted bear reflects his American heritage. Made popular during the term of President Theodore Roosevelt, the teddy bear has become an American favorite. For an old-fashioned look, we gave our bear an embroidered face and used wooden buttons to accent his movable arms and legs. What a lovable, huggable bear! It is crocheted using two strands of worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.00 mm) hook. We gave our bear an American flag to celebrate the day!
Baby will be a Yankee Doodle doll in these patriotic American flag booties! Made using bedspread weight cotton thread (size 10), each bootie features red and white stripes and embroidered stars on the blue tops and soles. For a comfy touch, we sewed socks inside the footies to keep them snug on wee feet. We used a size 6 (1.80 mm) steel crochet hook.
Patriotic pride isn't just for the 4th of July! You can showcase the red, white, and blue throughout the year with this all-American afghan. Star shapes dominate the airy center of each of the 7"-inch squares in this afghan; the striped edging is worked in Double Crochet Stitches. The afghan is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size I (5.50 mm) hook.
Give a rousing salute to independence by displaying our patriotic granny square coverlet. Rustic shades of red, white, and blue, combined with a star-like center in each square, reflect our pride in Old Glory. It is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size G (4.00 mm) hook.
Patriotic pride isn't just for the 4th of July! You can showcase the red, white, and blue throughout the year with this all-American afghan. Imagine looking up into the dark night at a sea of stars that range in brightness. That's what this afghan resembles with its two square motifs that alternate the placement of red and white stitches. The afghan is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size I (5.50 mm) hook. The plush blue fringe seems to extend the night sky.
As a rousing salute to Old Glory, our patriotic pillow commemorates America's independence on the Fourth of July and throughout the year. This American flag pillow is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size H hook. Eight buttons create the circle of stars.
With its bold stripes and field of star motifs, this throw pays tribute to the American flag. What a spirited accent for your decor on patriotic days or all through the year! The afghan is crocheted using worsted weight yarn and a size J (6.00 mm) hook.
With these crochet ePatterns, you can have a great project to work on in time for the 4th of July holiday and a finished design that shows off your patriotism all year around!
