Uncle Sam's Favorite Knits: 14 Patriotic Free Knitting Patterns

Olympic Games HatIf you bleed red, white, and blue, then these free knitting patterns are for you. When summer approaches, we all have one holiday on our minds, and that's Independence Day. More fun even than watching fireworks with your friends and families or cooking burgers on the grill can be decking your backyard and kitchen (and even yourself!) out in the most patriotic knits ever. Even if you're just looking to outdo that overzealous holiday-obsessed neighbor of yours, at least you're also celebrating the U.S.A. Check out these free knitting patterns for some Fourth of July inspiration.


If you're planning a barbecue on America's birthday, we have plenty of free knitting patterns for a patio celebration. You can go simple and buy some red plastic cups and blue placemats, or you can go all-out like a true American and knit absolutely everything in the pattern of the greatest flag in the world. Why stop there? Dress yourself and even your little ones in red, white, and blue with our free knitting patterns for attire, and decorate your house with some patriotic afghans.

Patriotic Knits to Wear

Team USA Knit MittensLet's face it: you're so American, if you could grab the flag poking out of your house right now and wrap it around yourself for Independence Day, you would.

Break them out again when the Olympic games start up to show your pride in the good ol' U.S.A. These free knitting patterns will get you there.

Luckily, we have a few free knitting patterns here for you. You'll have a backyard so American, the president might get confused and wander in, thinking he's in the Oval Office. These free knitting patterns aren't going to knit themselves, so you better get started before the big day!
