In honor of the upcoming fifth anniversary of the attacks on September 11th, 2001; I designed this square.

[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/scapegrace/th_911001.jpg[/IMG] front

[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/scapegrace/th_911004.jpg[/IMG] and back.

(Images are clickable to enlarge).

I also made up a page on which is posted the graph to use as well as descriptions on stitching overtop to create the design.
This is the link....
http://www.geocities...are_afghan.html

I made it using a size H afghan hook. It turned out 9 X 8 inches even though it's 28 stitches high and wide. The tunisian stitch is taller than it is wide. I think if you single crochet stitched this, it should be a perfect square.

Once the square is completed, you stitch the details on.

It doesn't take very long to make, (this is what I did while Crochetville was down), and I hope some of you out there will make it too.

Please share the link with your friends.

We really must never forget.

Have hook; will travel!

Christ, who dwells in you, has something He wants to do through you wherever you are. Believe this and Go in His Grace, Love, Power and His Peace."

Oh! I was so surprised to see this back at the top today! :)

I'm glad you-all like it! :yay

I made my square into a small bag. I posted it in another thread last year with my other flag bags but I can post it here too since that was a while ago.

Here's the bag, front and back...

The back has a U.S. Betsy Ross flag on it. (Images are clickable for enlargement).
