Be Your Own Betsy Ross

From 1942, this Spool Cotton Company book features a pattern for a 48-star American flag, crafted with a #9 steel hook and J&P Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen in red, white, and blue. Stripes and block are crafted with rows of double crochet, finished with a slip stitch edging. The white stars are made with chains, single crochet, double crochet and half-double crochet, and they're sewn on separately (you have to make a total of 96, since they're sewn onto both sides). Completed flag measures 24 x 36 inches.

Gift Shopping with Crochet features 23 pages, with patterns for motifs, jewelry, bags, baskets, flowers, slippers, and other novelties. Price 10 cents.

For retro crochet books and traditional thread crochet, please check my Etsy shop at www.acadiancrochet.etsy.com. Lots of fun vintage too!
