With the 4th of July coming up, I thought that I would make a patriotic pattern! When I hear the word patriotic, I think about red, white, and blue, and stars. So, I came up with this cute, quick, and easy Granny Star pattern. It’s great for a bunting or banner or even just as a decoration at your Independence Day party. The star takes about 5-10 minutes to work up (depending how fast you crochet) Tomorrow, I will share how to turn them into granny squares. 🙂 Enjoy and Happy Crocheting!
