4 Free Fourth of July Crochet Patterns

july 4th free patterns crochet

Many places around the good ole USA have banned fireworks for more than one reason this year. But that doesn't mean you have to sit around bored. We have a roundup of FREE crochet patterns to help you celebrate Independence Day in the prettiest way possible!
So, grab these patterns, your hook, and your yarn, and enjoy a cool drink and some uninterrupted time with your favorite hobby. (And just think about how happy your pets will be without the scary thunder rockets in the skies, while you're at it.)

Without further ado, we present:

4 FREE Fourth of July crochet patterns for you to take and make. Each of these patterns has the benefit of being compact so you can take it with you, each uses relatively little yarn, so you may even have enough in your stash already, and the pattern for each is fairly easy.
The last pattern might be the exception to “easy” but for those of you with a bit of crochet experience, if you read it carefully and follow it step-by-step, you should be able to handle it. I've even linked you to the photo tutorial version of the pattern.
Ok, now let's run these up the flagpole and see what happens!

1.) 4th of July Cozy designed by Tia Davis from

free crochet pattern july 4th
Skill Level: Easy
Materials: (shown in) Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Red, White, and Blue; Hook size H/5.00mm, yarn needle
The author of this adorable bottle cozy says:
“Are you planning a 4th of July celebration and want a cute hostess gift? Or maybe you just want to celebrate in style? Crochet this simple cozy that will fit most cans, plastic, and glass bottles. This is a great pattern for beginners who want to practice crocheting in the round or for intermediate crocheters who want something simple and easy to work up.
Get creative and change up the colors to crochet a cozy that's perfect for any holiday or occasion. This makes a great Father's Day gift for the hard-to-buy-for dad too!*Note: I carried my yarn from round to round as opposed to breaking yarn at the end of each round. Since the yarn carry-over is on the inside of the cozy it won’t show unless you turn the cozy inside-out.”

2.) Star Spangled Banner Crochet Bunting Pattern from Kara at Petals to Picots

Skill Level: Easy
Materials: Red, white, and blue worsted weight yarn, approx. 218 yd each (shown in Knit Picks Brava Worsted in Red #25712, White #25694, and Solstice Heather #25702), US H-8 / 5 mm crochet hook, tapestry needle and scissors for finishing
This patriotic bunting would be perfect for any summer picnic or to grace the banisters of a graceful country porch! The creator says:
“Celebrate the Red, White, and Blue with this quick and easy Star Spangled Banner Crochet Bunting pattern! I saw someone on Ravelry work up my Granny Star Pattern in red, white, and blue and thought that would be a perfect idea for a 4th of July bunting!”

3.) Granny's Fireworks afghan block by Darlene Swaim of Lotus Designs

Skill Level: Easy
Materials: Worsted weight yarn in Blue, White, and Red (shown in Plymouth Yarn – Encore), Size G(4.5mm) crochet hook, buttons of your choice, needle & thread
This adorable afghan square caught my eye and I couldn't help but drool over all of Darlene's beautiful patterns on Ravelry. You'll want to do yourself a favor and check them out, too. I think this square would make an adorable trivet or would be perfect when repeated as a whole afghan by itself!

4.) Fireworks Doily / Mandala by Zooty Owl

Skill Level: Intermediate
Materials: Shown in Raeesah Cotton Soft DK (100% cotton) and Elle Premier Cotton DK (use whichever yarn blend or thread count you like), 4/4.00mm crochet hook
If you're not into the red, white, and blue, you might want to try this gorgeous explosion of color in this soothing mandala pattern. They can be very mesmerizing and help to take your mind off other things.
As the creator describes:
“Last Friday an idea for a Doily / Mandala popped into my head … Doodling the design just was not enough and I had to get crocheting on the idea immediately (completely ignoring the heaps of WIP's staring at me accusingly!!) My friend Angela said that this reminded her of FIREWORKS!”
So, whether you choose your own beautifully different colors, or you even decide to work this up in patriotic red, white, and blue, you can personalize this pattern to your heart's content.

Happy Independence Day!
