HSA191 Americana Placemat

Knit a bit of history with this 39-star placemat size version of a red, white and blue flag. The lacy stripes symbolize a flag waving in the breeze. The 5-pointed stars are created with an nifty combination of knit stitch and simple embroidery.

The pattern instructions include a neat trick to carry the unused stripe color up each side without showing. No extra ends to weave in!

(Note: Embroidery is optional, leaving the white stars in the blue union appearing as simple knit stitches)
