American Freedom Scarf Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

American Freedom Scarf 
Free Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

I was laying there in bed, unable to sleep,
 thinking about America and Freedom.
This country is the land of Opportunity and Freedom.
But That Freedom was not Free.
 It was bought with a price of many soldiers who have 
freely given their lives. 
They fought and died for the Freedom we enjoy today.
That was when I came up with the
 idea to design a scarf that represented both the 
American Flag and Our Soldiers.

The Flag portion is worn on the right, over our heart,
And The Camo represents our Men and Women Soldiers.
I AM Thankful For America and 
Those who fought for Her Freedom.
