4 Free July 4th Patterns – Get Your Independence Day On!

4 Free Fourth of July Crochet Patterns

We have a roundup of FREE Fourth of July 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 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 July 4th Cozy crochet pattern
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? This simple cozy that will fit most cans, plastic, and glass bottles. This is a great pattern for beginners who want to practice in the round or for intermediate artists who want something simple and easy to work up.
Get creative and change up the colors to  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

Star Spangled Banner Crochet Pattern July 4th
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

Granny's Fireworks afghan block July 4th
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

Fireworks Mandala July 4th crochet pattern
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 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!

You love patterns, right?

Yep, so do we. So, you probably spend a lot of time tracking down patterns, looking for good ones. Hoping they're easy to understand and don't have mistakes that mess them up.

You probably have found some really nice ones and have tons saved to your computer or phone. Yep, so do we. So then, you make them, and that's it. Back to the searching for the next really good pattern. It gets old.

We created Happily Hooked to fix that. We LOVE good patterns and we really like easy-to-understand patterns. And, we are pretty particular, too. We triple-test every pattern to make sure it works like it's supposed to and so it comes out like the picture.

So, you may have heard that we also have the BEST group of members around. Ask anyone. Our Facebook group is supportive, kind, friendly, and we just absolutely DO NOT ALLOW anyone to be mean. That's the bottom line. We LIVE for our members' smiles. 

And for patterns. I mean, I'm not going to lie about it, right?
