It might seem like it’s a little late to be knitting for the Fourth of July, but you still have time this weekend to stitch up a patriotic craft that will get you through the holiday, the Olympics, backyard barbecues, Labor Day and beyond.
Case in point, this Americana Evaporative Beverage Cooler (I have no idea why it’s called that) from Lion Brand Yarn, pictured at left in the photo. Worked flat in Garter Stitch in Lion Cotton, the bottom is red and white stripes and the top is blue, on which you can embroider your own stars if you like when the knitting is done.
It holds a two-liter bottle and will be useful long after this holiday non-weekend is done.
Are you doing any crafting for the holiday? Spill it!
