Red, white and blue – the colors of the United States flag.
This is a free patriotic crochet cup cozy pattern that is a great make for Summer or for the fourth of July.
This is a quick crochet colorwork project. It uses 3 colors total but only 2 are used at a time in the various rounds. The red, white and blue for the USA is represented by the United States flag.
This project is an easier colorwork design but if you have never done colorwork before you may have a difficult time. This pattern is NOT a tutorial for crochet colorwork.
You will need to know a few things before beginning. You should know how to change colors properly and know how to work in the round.
You’ll also need to know how to work a foundation single crochet stitch, how to work in the back loop only and how to read and follow a graph.
I hope you enjoy this one!
