Why not add some sweet old-time charm to the house front & crochet up your very own flag!
This Pattern is from an old 1942 Spool Cotton Company booklet entitled Gift Shopping with Crochet, Book 191.
I fell for this flag straight off! I love things like this, things that are a little quirky & perfectly useful! When I read into the pattern, I had a mini fit, it was made using thread & steel hooks (yikes)! This flag would take FOREVER, but I neeeeed it, so I modified mine just a little. Using good old cheap, colorfast, indestructible & fast drying (no mold here) worsted acrylic & a 5mm hook, I set off to be my own flag maker!
Original pattern also has 50 small thread crochet stars all neatly in rows, again seriously involved, so I opted for an Americana type ring of stars. I used the patterns star instructions, but just made them with the acrylic.
Perfect for Memorial day, 4th of July or just for something different, be the only one on your block or in your town with a handmade flag!
