Home of the Brave
Home of the Brave was inspired by the colors of the original yarn used. I love creating projects for the American patriotic holidays and when I saw this kit of minis, I knew I needed to
create something special!
Using an easy-to-memorize, 8-row repeat of stitches, Home of the Brave’s main body has a beautiful lacework of undulating arrowheads with a pointed shell border. I used every last inch (and won at yarn chicken) of the kit in a gradient of red, white, and blue. I wanted something that could be a dramatic shawl or an extra-long scarf that I could wind multiple times to give different looks. But you can change the length and/or width just by adding or subtracting repeats as stated in the notes. It is a fast crochet, even at its original length, but the pattern will keep even the most advanced crocheter engaged.
