Free Pattern – Patriotic Pinwheel Afghan Pattern

Several years ago I sold crochet and plastic canvas designs on a regular basis to The Needlecraft Shop, Annie’s Attic and Crochet World.

They are all now under the ‘same umbrella’ company as Annie’s Crochet and Crafts, which operate Freepatterns.com

My Patriotic Pinwheel Afghan is now being featured at Free Patterns for download!

I designed this afghan to resemble a pinwheel quilt pattern. After it was published and returned to me, it was given to my son whom I had promised it to! He still has it to this day.

Today is the perfect day to showcase it!

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!
