Americana Yarn

Red Heart has several yarns that come in red, white, and blue — in a single ball! Therefore, they make it easy to turn any pattern into a patriotic pattern without much effort. Of course, you can use these yarns however you would like. However, they often work best on a plain pattern that doesn’t have a complicated stitch pattern.

To Wear

From fun costumes like a Statue of Liberty crown and an Uncle Sam beard to practical items like a cowl or baby hat, get in the spirit with these projects to wear! Since there aren’t a lot of major holidays during the late spring and summer months, this gives kids an excuse to dress up and have some fun. Many of these are also great for photos shoots.


If you’re chilly while away from the fire pit, or just need a blanket for a long weekend picnic, these blankets are exactly what you need.
