I found this cute Crochet American Flag Wreath on Pinterest and knew that I wanted to make it for my front door for the Summer season. The pattern is by Heather Corrinne Crochets and it’s free! So fun!

I used an H/5mm crochet hook to stitch up the wreath and a G/4mm hook for the stars. My yarn is I Love This Yarn in Red, White, and Royal.
The pattern works up quickly. It’s a long rectangle and you don’t have to tie off your ends for each section! You just carry the yarn along the side and hide it when you sew the piece onto your wreath form. I love that!
The pattern is written for a 12 inch foam wreath. I made mine using a 14 inch wreath so I needed to adjust the pattern a little. I added one chain to the starting chain to fit around my wreath so I have 23 stitches across. I also added 2 extra rows to each red and white section – each section has 8 rows. The blue section has 50 rows. The total number of rows for my wreath is 154.
I tied a piece of ribbon around my wreath to use as a hanger. You can also tie a small piece of yarn to the back of the wreath between a few stitches if you want to have the hanger hidden.
Tip: I used stitch markers to hold my crocheted piece around my wreath while sewing up the seam. Made it so much easier!
This is a fun pattern to make and a great way to add a little patriotic color to your front door this Summer.
Very patriotic! Would look nice on anybody’s door!
