Here is a free crochet pattern for this very patriotic placemat, which is great for your upcoming 4th of July celebration!
The placemat is made using the single and double crochet stitches, as well as slip stitch and skip stitches.
The outside edges of the placemat feature a somewhat frilly appearance, and the red, white and blue color scheme makes it a perfect addition to your Independence Day festivities.
The frilly edges add a festive touch, and the colors of red, white and blue evoke a patriotic feeling that is sure to bring some extra patriotism to the holiday.
So if you’re looking to show off your American spirit this 4th of July, this is one placemat you won’t want to pass up!
However, don’t let the time/season of year stop you from crocheting up a set of these placemats at any time of year!
Not only can these placemats bring some extra sparkle to the Fourth of July holiday, but they can also be used to decorate your home for any occasion.
Bright colors are sure to bring a pop of color to any room and the festive design will be enjoyed year-round.
Color combos that come to mind include pastels for Easter, browns and oranges for fall season, and of course, greens and reds for Christmas, just to name a few! Pastels often remind me of spring and rebirth, while browns and oranges evoke the feelings of coziness and warmth associated with the fall season. Greens and reds are the traditional Christmas colors because they represent the evergreen trees and the red holly berries.
Easy stitching and added embellishments make this a perfect project for a 4th of July or patriotic barbecue!! Red, white and blue are the colors of the US flag, so adding them to the project will make it look even more festive!
Stars are added as decorations, and the directions for crocheting the stars are included in this pattern. This project is a great way to show your love of the 4th of July and patriotism.
Whip a set of 4 Patriotic Summertime Placemats up in no time for a great gift set too!
