Thursday, May 28

This square shouts the 4th of July or any occasion requiring R/W/B. I like it and will probably make more. I am thinking a purse would be cute lined with red, white and blue material.

It starts off looking like a wheel from a covered wagon.

Not too many color changes for this square.

And done!! No special stitches. Just the usual.

After making this, I found the “true” blue color usually used with red and white. From Lion Brand. If I make more squares, I’ll use their navy yarn instead of Sugar ‘n Cream’s navy.

Yarn used:
Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton in Red, Soft Ecru and Bright Navy.

Measures 6 1/2″
