Red white blue crochet projects have found their place in my handmade collections and tutorials as part of my American dream. US is my second home ever since I arrived in year 2000. What I like most about this country are the endless possibilities to find your way and follow your passion. And the fact that I have the privilege to live and work here to make life happen is something I wanted for a long time. Some dreams do come true!
So the colors of red, white and blue to celebrate milestones of American history are important and beautiful at the same time. 4th of July celebrations coming up in a week inspired me to round up my red white blue crochet projects and showcase them here to hopefully inspire your own ideas.
Red white blue baby girl dress
It all started with the adorable red white blue baby girl dress. Ever since I found the dress pattern I imagined the ruffles in red, white and blue and bodice in summery white. Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour Yarn was perfect with pretty shiny threads woven into the yarn. My coworker fell in love with the dress and bought it for her 2-year-old granddaughter along with the flower headband.
Red white blue crochet throw
Next one is the red white blue crochet throw. I found the huge ball of Buttercream Rainbow Boucle Yarn and made it into this festive throw perfect for patriotic home decor.

Red white blue wine tote – no. 1
The wine tote was inspired by Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour yarn.
Red white blue mason jar covers
Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour yarn also inspired me to crochet the red white blue mason jar covers. These look great outside with little candles burning inside.

Red white blue wine tote – no. 2
Wine has apparently been an inspiration for me as I made yet another red white blue wine tote. This time I used Lily Sugar’n Cream Ombre yarn and I love how this yarn creates the swirling stripes around the bottle.

Last but not least, the newest addition to my red white blue crochet collection are the Pinwheel doilies. They are inspired by Lizbeth’s patriotic crochet thread set.
