Crochet patterns with patriotic themes are some of the more useful craft patterns in general, given the number of patriotic holidays that are present in every calendar year. They tend to allow a crafter to be a little bit more creative than just the pedestrian attempts at celebrating our patriotism, and really add zest to patriotic celebrations as the festive occasions that they are. The one thing that most of the free crochet patterns for patriotic themes have in common is that they use some variation of red, white and blue yarns and threads to a considerable extent. This is a good thing for a crocheter to keep in mind when yarn shopping - if you see those colors on sale, a bulk purchase may be in order if desiring to attempt patriotic patterns at a later date.
Crochet patterns with patriotic themes are also very good for using up yarn remainders of past projects. Simply find a small patriotic crochet pattern and have at it. These smaller patriotic patterns are also wonderful for teaching children and beginners to crochet the skills necessary to expand their project base, and can really boost confidence. These crochet patterns also make neat little gifts for Veterans as a way of saying "Thank You" for all they have done to safeguard our freedoms.
