What are you most proud of? I'm happy with the way the stripes of large stars and stripes of small stars matched up to create this fun design. The stripes are also crocheted together so there is no need for sewing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy pattern, but follow the instructions closely when joining the stripes to make sure the stars line up correctly. Two sizes are included: - Throw: 43" wide x 53-1/2" long - Twin Coverlet: 62-1/2" wide x 86" long This pattern is available for $4.00 and is written in U.S. terms.

Really NICE! I plan to use size 3 thread, or perhaps even yarn and upsize this for a king size bed!

Super cute! I'm not one to usually decorate in a "stars and stripes" theme, but I could use this year round! Nice work :)

I'm not a nautical person, however these stars and stripes are beautiful.

I love this! Anything with stars is my favorite thing, I have lots of stars in my house. Do you know how it would work out in Yarn?

Thank you so much! No, I haven't tried this in yarn yet, but think it would probably work best in a lighter weight yarn.
