American Theme knitting patterns?
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 and The Great American Aran Afghan...

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

ETA: I can't find a finished photo of the afghan...but they took these dishcloths 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

Sorta tempted to do this one but haven't got the motivation to
start it yet...haha I guess it will just hang around in my bookmarks!

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.
