Wavy American Flag Blanket
Tracy Johnson has recreated the American flag in crochet sized as a blanket. The stripes are wavy ripples, offering an undulating design. She offers this pattern as a free download on Ravelry where she shares, "I made this as a tribute for my Dad—a WWII Coast Guard Veteran still kicking at 93! I hope others will make this flag for the special veteran in their life or for veterans that have no one to make one for them!"

This free afghan pattern by Donna's Crochet Designs is inspired by the American Flag but takes liberties with the original design.

American Flag Crochet Dishcloth
This free crochet pattern from Being Spiffy is designed as a dishcloth and certainly works well in that way. However, it could also be used as the basis for a blanket design. As with the squares above, you could either adapt the pattern to a larger size by changing to larger hook and yarn, or you could make multiples of the dishcloth and stitch them into a large afghan.
