Top 5 4th of July knitting patterns
It’s that time of year again – the summer is hot, the skies are clear, the barbecue is sizzling, and the knitting needles are clicking away. Check out our top 5 Independence Day knitting patterns, bound to keep the patriotism flowing throughout the year!
This adorable patriotic hat is designed to fit newborns to adults, using any yarn that knits up with 5 – 5.5 stitches per inch. This hat is made using the Fair Isle stranded knitting method to achieve the design; it is knitted in the round on circular needles or DPNs. We love Drops Cotton Light for a light summery hat, and Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for a snuggly year-round hat.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a garter stitch flag blanket! Knit in one piece using chunky, bulky weight yarn, this blanket is a snap to knit. It would make a great picnic blanket, sofa throw, or Christmas present. Knit it with Stylecraft Special Chunky for a low maintenance knit that you can machine wash and tumble dry. We recommend shades Lipstick (1246), White (1001), and Denim (1302), as seen here.
This versatile accessory can be worn as a poncho, a scarf, or a shawl. It’s perfect for warm summer knights; this shawl can last you from Memorial Day to Veteran’s Day and everything in between. It’s knit on size 11 (8 mm) needles and measures 15 x 25 inches when finished. We love Rowan Siena, a 100% cotton fingering weight yarn – check out Mariner (672), White (651), and Chili (666), as seen here.
This friendly tea cozy looks like it was inspired by the infamous Ralph Lauren olympian jackets from the last winter Olympic games! It will fit any standard 2 cup teapot, and this pattern is knitted in the round on circular needles or DPNs. This teapot is knitted up in any DK weight yarn, like Sirdar Country Style, a machine washable wool blend that can be tumble dried.
We love this garter stitch infinity scarf – it’s perfect for any season. It is knitted flat and seamed up; the stars are created using a stranded knitting technique that is charted in the pattern. This pattern features Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky, a 100% merino wool yarn that’s smooth and soft.
