My kids have been clamoring for these crochet flags so I’ve been frantically trying to finish them for the Fourth. I’m especially excited for my littlest to have flags to wave around, as they’re too young for sparklers this 4th of July.

They were super quick and easy. I love how the variegated blue yarn turned out in the blue square. It has just enough white to represent the stars. These crochet flags are fun for littles to wave around, and they look great as decor too.

Such an easy, fast little project. Which is perfect, if I’m going to hand them over to my kids.

Notes

To get this flag started I used Foundation Single Crochet, there is a quick photo tutorial below, if this is a new technique for you. Or get the full photo tutorial with video tutorial here Foundation Single Crochet.

Be sure to carry your red and white yarns, crocheting over them as you go. Then you can pick them back up when you’re ready for the next row in that color. You can just drop the blue yarn (no need to carry it) and pick it back up. This just leaves a beginning tail and ending tail to weave in.

The flag will curl at the edges after it’s worked. I felt it was a little too much (even for a flag) so I blocked it overnight. Instructions for blocking are included in the tutorial.
