BASTILLE DAY CROCHET

how to crochet, free crochet patterns, flowers, neck scarf, headband, hatband,

Each year on July 14 France celebrates Bastille Day, it is a French national day and a major public holiday and traditionally considered as the symbol of the French Revolution. 


Patriotic feelings break out throughout the country, French people wear blue, white and red, tricolore clothes and sing the Marseillaise (the French anthem). 

Not only is Bastille Day celebrated in France but also in different places around the world, for instance, Sydney, Australia, New York, USA and South Africa and India. 

And here in Whitstable, we celebrated the day with our friends at a private party, which included French food, wine and beer, plus French music and my favourite songs by Edith Piaf.

The Bastille Day party is the reason why I needed to make something in French patriotic colours to adorn my outfit with. I decided on a few red, white and blue flowers for my sun hat and a neck scarf for my husband, who ended up wearing the neck scarf as a hatband instead.

YARN TALK

Fortunately, I had some leftover cotton yarn in red, white and blue, except there was more white, than red and only a small amount of blue. So my design was limited in creativity due to the different amounts of yarn in each colour. 

Yarn Used: King Cole Cottonsoft  
MC - White (710); CC1 Cherry (719); CC2 Saxe (718)

Substitute Yarn: Any similar DK cotton yarn. Always check Yarnsub website for the best match.

On the first night, I made the neck scarf, using more red and white than blue. 

Measurements:
Neck scarf measures approximately 42ins (107cm) in length after being stretched to fit my husband's hat, it is 3in (8cm) wide across Middle Section 2in (5cm) wide across narrow Tail Section and 4in (10cm) wide at widest point of Tail Section.
