This is a beautiful pattern of a blanket I designed years ago. It's an American Flag in all its glory! I've been crocheting for the past 40+ years and have been designing my own pieces for about 30 years. I've also been selling my creations for about that long. I recently started selling my patterns, because I've receive a ton of requests from my fellow crocheters. The pattern I'm offering here comes with complete instructions and a photo of the finished piece. The stitches are not complicated (in my opinion), but it can get a little complicated when you add the stars to the blue field. You must follow the photo exactly for the placement of the stars. Other than that I loved making this blanket, and I've made and sold a few of them over the years. I'm sure you'll enjoy creating America The Beautiful, as much as I do. Happy Crocheting!
