Honoring Our Veterans
There are lots of ways to honor a veteran or military family, including making them a crochet throw or homemade blanket. Inside Honoring Our Veterans by Carolyn Pfeifer, you will find 13 crochet patterns that are made using American-made yarn in patriotic or camouflage prints. Homemade gifts, especially crochet blankets like these, are always a nice and meaningful way to show appreciation for those that serve including men, women, and families.
Choose from a variety of comforting crochet patterns including the red, white, and blue American Hero afghan (pg. 6), which is a lovely throw for any military family's living room. The Badge of Courage throw (pg, 13), is also a nice choice. Crocheted in a rich purple color, this crochet blanket was designed to honor recipients of the Purple Heart Medal. Other patterns include the Camouflage throw (pg. 16), Desert Ripples (pg. 18). Dress Blues (pg. 20), Earth & Sky (pg. 22), and more. There is even a Pink Camo throw (pg. 37) that's great for the military women or even a little girl whose father has served.
Aside from all the wonderful patterns, you will also find a special Veteran Salute in the front of the book. There's also information about how you can help including Community Outreach, National Programs, and more. Plus, all of the yarn that's recommended to work up these crochet blankets are made in America.
