The free United States Flag Dishcloth knitting pattern by Snickerdoodle Knits (that's me!) is now available for your knitting pleasure! This simple dishcloth creates a quick, fun summer knitting project that provides a fun and festive piece of decor for your kitchen. Learn more and get the links to purchase the pattern here, or have the free PDF sent to your email.
The yarn that I used for the pattern samples is Lily Sugar 'n Cream in Red, Dazzle Blue, and White. This is a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. I think it would be fun to play with different shades of pinks/reds/oranges, blues/grays, and whites/creams/grays to create unique flags, each with a different personality!
Here are a few color pairings that I've put together. Is there one that speaks to you? Click any of the photos below to view the yarn on Michael's website.
In this section I've included only 100% cotton yarn. I've organized these yarn recommendations from cheapest to most expensive, per gram.
