My American Flag

 

With the 4th of July just around the corner, I thought I would pull this project out of the archives for those of you who are still looking for something to make before the holiday weekend.

I made this last fall after finding the knitting pattern in a Debbie Bliss book. It still remains to be one of my favorite knitting projects to date!

The project is super simple (provided you use Debbie Bliss’ pattern – I cannot remember the name of the book where I found it, but I do know it’s from one of her newest books).

   

Once you finish your knitting, I simply cut a piece of blue felt – same size as the flag – and whipped stitched it in place. I purchased the wood stick from a craft store and inserted it before whip stitching the felt piece in place.

This is super easy to make, and I managed to finish it in one night. So you still have plenty of time to whip it up before the big day!
