Happy Stars and Stripes

After making the knitted American Flag wreath, I had lots of leftover red, white and blue yarn, so I went on an American flag craft frenzy. First I created this infinity scarf using a 1x1 rib stitch. The same star pattern was used to attach stars on both sides of the blue section. I couldn't quite figure out the right length, one loop looks too long and two loops look too small!

After that, I made this mini crochet flag using this free pattern. Of course, I wanted to be authentic and sew exactly 50 white beads in the correct pattern. This painstaking task took about 10 times longer than crocheting the two sides, so I only beaded one side. And what exactly do you do with a mini crochet flag? I wasn't going to use it as a keychain, so it just sits there on the table for random crafts.

Still, the best flag craft is the American Flag wreath. Go check out the pattern!
