American Star Afghan Block crochet pattern update

The latest in my pattern updates is this 12 inch American Star Afghan Block.

I’ve downgraded the pattern difficulty to Easy by changing a couple of the rounds to make it less challenging.  Why do something difficult when there’s an easy option?!!

The original design was a bit bland and needed a new lease of life.

I’ve added a few rounds of stripes in bright red and white to more closely represent the American flag which the original design didn’t have.  I just used red for the original block and the new version looks so much better with them!

And, I’ve made the instructions for joining the star to the block a little easier – the original method was a bit clumsy!  I’m really pleased with the finished block, its so much brighter and much easier to make. I hope you like the finished crochet design too!
