HeartStrings knitting pattern #A191
Knit a bit of fictional history with this 39-star placemat size version of a red, white and blue flag. The lacy feather and fan stripes symbolize the flag waving in the breeze. The 5-pointed stars are created with a nifty combination of knit stitch and simple embroidery.
Shown in Crystal Palace Cuddles colors #6116 Mars Red, #6101 Snow White, #6112 Navy
The pattern instructions include a neat trick to carry the unused stripe color up each side without showing. No extra ends to weave in!
- Size: Approximately 18" by 11"
- Yarn: Bulky weight
- Knitting needles: Size US 10 (6 mm) suggested
- Notions: Tapestry needle
- Skill level: Intermediate
- Stitch instructions: Written and charted
- Construction: Knitted flat in one piece; no seams to sew; simple embroidery to complete the last 2 points of the stars begun with white knit stitches
Note 1: Embroidery is optional, leaving the white stars in the blue union appearing as simple knit stitches.
Note 2: This Americana pattern is not an actual U.S. flag, nor makes any claims to be. Out of reverence, of course you would want to protect and care for it as you would any of the precious items you knit.
