Old Glory Flag Crochet Blanket Pattern
"This throw measures 36" x 62" and is designed to mimic an antique Betsy Ross version of the American Flag with its 13 stars and 13 stripes. The main body of the flag uses the Suzette Stitch to give it a wonderful, squishy texture. The pattern is stuffed full of written details, tips, tricks and large-sized photo tutorials! There is color changing involved (once per row) and only on the upper portion of the afghan and this is also covered in a photo tutorial. The stars are made separately, glued into place and then sewn on by hand."

Beautiful design and excellent instructions! This was the first time I've ever attempted a crochet project like this. My crochet experience is limited, but I was able to follow the instructions without any problems. Thanks!

I have to save this to my favorites. Right now I have too many projects going, but I have good intentions on crocheting this for my favorite Veteran, my husband. I usually don't crochet much for him, but this will be a great piece for his Man Cave.

This is stunning. Old Glory never looked better. I am married to a Vietnam Veteran and he would appreciate having this in his office as decor. Even though it is an afghan I don't think I could ever be comfortable using it as anything but decor. I imagine one could increase the number of stars if I wanted to for a modern flag.

I love the colors like cranberry instead of red and linen instead of white. The designer has a nice story behind the making of this afghan/blanket. What a great idea to make this for a raffle or auction. The next time I want to participate in the silent auction at my kid's school, I will consider (if given enough of a heads up!) making this. I think Americana is truly a design idea that just about everybody loves.

I love this design. The directions contain lots of step by step progress pictures and it is explained in great detail to help make this project a lot easier. This is perfect for Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day or all year round. I would love to make one of these to display in my family room.
