We thought that this “vintage” look ripple stitch American Flag Crochet Pattern was a great way to celebrate with the 4th of July just around the corner.

This amazing pattern is worked in ripple stitch and is super easy!

In other words, the ripple in this design is created by working dc3tog to form ‘valleys’ and 3 dc all in one st to form ‘peaks’. In each row, take care to work dc3tog over the 3 sts in each ‘valley’ and 3 dc in the center dc of each ‘peak.’ However, you may wish to use stitch markers to mark each peak. The ripple pattern may not be evident until you have work multiple rows. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Finally, yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Subsequently, the blue field for Stars is worked in intarsia. Finally, the Stars are made separately and then sewed to the afghan.

The intarsia method:

The intarsia technique is different to Fair Isle, where colours are alternated frequently across a row and out-of-use yarns are stranded across the back of the work. Similarly, as intarsia knitting, you will need to have separate balls of yarn in use for each and every colour change across a row. However, use whole balls if it’s less than three colour changes.

Alternatively, wind off small amounts of each yarn and let them hang from your work to prevent any tangles forming.
