The flag afghan e-pattern is wonderfully simple. I received it last week and have it half finished. I will be giving it too a dear friend who so believes in the Buy American policy. I know she will love it.

I love this afghan! I made one of them for one of my boys. It has a gender neutral appearence in my opinion. I did it in one week (but I dedicated quite a bit of time to it... I am going to make another one for my other son and then give them to the boys at the same time as gifts for their bunk beds. their room has an "American" theme. If you are looking for an attractive afghan that has an simple easy to follow pattern simple design and provides "impressive complicated looking results" sure to wow your friends then this is it... I my opinion a beginner could accomplish this easy a quickly with lovely results.

I haven't started it yet but I love all things Americana and flag oriented as we are a military family.

Was really easy until I got the instructions for the edging of the stars. I just wanted to pull my hair out. So instead I just made it up. Wasn't easy, but it still looks really good.

I made this for my husband to use on his rack while underway. (He's in the Navy) He loves this blanket so much. Unfortunately, I think the salinity in the sea air ate at the yarn and it has started to degrade... Am now crocheting it again...but in a stronger yarn...lol

Only about halfway through the stripes. Did it backwards and haven't started the stars. :o) I really like this pattern. Very quick and easy.
