I've been searching everywhere for american themed knitting patterns, like for granny squares and stuff like that. The only patterns i can get off search engines are socks and the ones that look good are crochet patterns and i am not very good at crocheting, so i am stuck.

If anyone can help me out,i would really apprechiate it!

thanks a bunch.

There is the Great American Afghan (http://www.stitchesmarket.com/xcart/customer/product.php?productid=49&cat=214&page=1)and The Great American Aran Afghan... (http://www.stitchesmarket.com/xcart/customer/product.php?productid=6462&cat=214&page=2)

There was also someone who did the States and made the Flag out of them...but I haven't found that yet :think:

ETA: I can't find a finished photo of the afghan...but they took these dishcloths (http://www.knittingknonsense.com/index3.html)and did the states in red and white...then the star cloth in blue...and made the US flag from them

about so here it is :)

Here are some charts and dishcloth patterns that you could incorporate into anything.

i tried knitting the flag afghan of every state, but for some reason, mine are turning up reversed from what it should look like, i dont know if i have done anything wrong, but i am sure i haven't. it is just weird how they are turning up like a mirror image of the pics from the site.
