Free Crochet Pattern Large Stars & Stripes Afghan

      Here is a free afghan pattern I really like. I call it Large Stars & Stripes. You can see why.
                          The afghan is worked in sections and then the entire thing is sewn together.
                                        The colors used are navy, claret, soft white and cornmeal.

                            The center was designed and then all the other elements were added.

Monkey Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Another free pattern! This time for a Monkey Hat. It calls for Red Heart Super saver yarns and will fit most adults (green). I did the blue with a sport weight and smaller hook so it will fit most children. So you are getting a two for one with this pattern.
The mouth, eyes and nose are felt that can be either glued on or sewn on.
