looking for Patriotic patterns
Ok- has anyone found a goldmine of these? Knit or crochet? I keep getting suckered by about.com. I only end up looking there and I_don't_like_any_of_the_patriotic_patterns that they link to. Really. So, does anyone know of any...good (I know this is subjective) patriotic patterns. I guess at this late date, the smaller the item, the better. I'm not looking for heirloom items, just something I can make with the red, white and blue acrylic yarns I have already purchased.

Yes! I am lazy - I admit it!! I'm just hoping someone has a bookmark to pass along, not that anyone will go looking for me...

TIA
Carol

These look cute:

I saw a beautiful pattern for a flag blanket in a catalog (Knit Picks maybe?) but I think it was crocheted.

Good luck!

I did thanks - the only thing I liked was the Lion Brand scarf and afghan.

My sister gave me a stack of old knitting mags that she couldn't bear to throw away. One of them is entirely patriotic--blankets, flags, everything red, white and blue. Of course, its from the bi-centennial! :D

wow ingrid that's cool!!! is there anything you can share?

Nuno, I think that's a project that we *both* can complete. I started one last night (alas, I didn't finish, but I will!)

I'm going to link this thread in the KAL forum, for the June challenge. Make sure to submit pictures! when you complete one!
