American Flag Wreath Crochet Pattern

I always find myself admiring Lucy’s crochet wreaths on Attic 24, like this one here and this one here, so I thought it would be fun to try one of my own. With the 4th of July approaching, a patriotic wreath seemed the perfect idea. I love how it came out and am looking forward to making one for every holiday! Hope you enjoy it …


American Flag Wreath Crochet Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • 12 in. Styrofoam wreath
  • red, white, and blue worsted weight yarn
  • G and H hooks
  • tapestry needle
  • pearl pins (optional)

To assemble your wreath, fold strip in half and Sl st Rows 1 and 112 together to form a ring. Sew ring to wreath as in Lucy’s tutorial here. Arrange stars on blue portion of wreath as desired. Stitch into place or use pearl pins to fasten to wreath (another of Lucy’s genius ideas!).

    Was just pondering how to make a Fourth of July wreath last night. Had a general idea what I wanted to do, then got the email with your pattern from All Free Crochet with what I was pondering … but easier! Thank you!

    • Kara June 26, 2013 at 10:12 pm #

      Yay! So glad it came in handy to you. Good luck with it and I hope you enjoy it 🙂

    I love the 4th of July Wreath, but it took 25 pages of precious paper to get to it. What a waste.

    • Kara June 26, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

      Hi Beverly 🙂 Glad you like the pattern. You should be able to choose the page range to print on your printer. That is what I usually do when printing off the internet. Hope that helps.

      • Suzanne Broadhurst June 27, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

        There’s also a site called Print Friendly (i have no connection to them, just heard about the site through friends).

        It has made printing crochet patterns so much easier. You can either enter the URL of the page – or use their little bookmarklet – and it will give you options, such as Remove Images and Delete This. You can delete the unnecessary bits.

        Also, when printing patterns, it’s important to go to the actual page of the post rather than the main blog link, otherwise the print button thinks you want everything, not just what you see on screen. Easiest way to make sure you are on the post’s page is to click the title of it.

        Hope that helps!

        • Kara June 27, 2013 at 1:48 pm #

          I just downloaded the plugin in for it so now there is an icon at the bottom of my posts for people to print from. Thanks for the tip 🙂

          • Suzanne Broadhurst June 27, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

            Oh! I didn’t know about the plug-in for blogs. Yay, gets even better! Thank *you* for the return tip. 🙂

      It looks great, Suzanne! So glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  12. Annie July 6, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

    Love the pattern! Bought a 12 in form from the store. Got home started crocheting. Checked to see if it would go around the form. Perfect! Continued. Found I had to add more rows to fit around? When I went to stitch it together I could t get it all around. I had to stretch it. In some spots it doesn’t go all the way together. It’s ok though. No one will see the back. I’m starting the stars now. It says start with magic ring. The video says chain the amount the pattern calls for. But I don’t see an amount! I know the 4th has come and gone but I want to make this for a friend whose husband was deployed. Thanks. I’ve never used magic ring before.

    • Kara July 9, 2013 at 11:06 am #

      Hi Annie 🙂 Glad the base of the wreath worked out for you! To do the stars, just ch 1 after the magic ring and start the stitches are noted in the pattern. Hope that helps!

        If I may say so there are prettier 2′ star patterns on the internet that have more defined points, just google 2″ crocheted star pattern. I used red heart yarn and followed the pattern exactly and had to add 7 more striped rows for it to go around a 12′ form. I also made it 5 single crochets wider so it wouldnt be so tight to the form.

      • Nettie October 7, 2017 at 10:07 pm #

        Just google it to find the instructions on how to do a magic ring. You can google anything that you don’t know how to do.

      Awesome!! Thanks so much, Tamara!

  14. Randi March 5, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    thank you so much for the pattern I am making this!

  15. Jennifer June 21, 2014 at 7:46 pm #

    Thanks for publishing this! I have seen this pattern a few times and thought it may be too complicated for a somewhat- beginner but it was very easy to understand and super quick to work up! Came out great and I have received may compliments on it! Thanks again!

  16. Evaline June 22, 2014 at 5:27 pm #

    I just found the site and just love all the different patterns you have on it. I am going to do flag wreath I like to do something different on holidays. Thank you for the site and hope to use allot of patterns.

  17. Denise September 30, 2014 at 12:37 pm #

    How many chains do you start your magic ring with for the stars? The pattern doesn’t say and I’m at that step. The tutorial says to use the number of chains per pattern but I don’t see it listed here. Thanks!

    • Kara September 30, 2014 at 12:42 pm #

      Hi Denise 🙂 You will be working all the stitches from Round 1 in the magic ring, starting with the ch 1 indicated at the beginning of the round. Keep in mind the magic ring is an alternate to making a beginning chain and the forming a loop. If you would rather, you can do that though … just chain about 4 chains and join and then continue the pattern at Round 1. Hope that helps!

      • Denise October 1, 2014 at 9:22 am #

        Thanks, I was able to figure it out after I sat down with my hook and yarn. I’m not used to have it written out that way. Thanks again!

  18. Rosanna Judah-Elliott January 16, 2015 at 3:09 am #

    Hi, I was wondering if you allow items to be sold from this pattern?

    Thanks so much!


    • Kara January 16, 2015 at 1:28 pm #

      Hi Rosanna 🙂 Yes, you may absolutely sell any items you make from my patterns. Thanks so much for asking and good luck!

  19. Pat May 25, 2015 at 5:16 am #
