In honor of superhero nerds everywhere, I created The Freedom Throw, inspired by Captain America’s shield. An American star-in-circle shield motif lies in the center of this circular afghan, sized perfectly for display on the back of your sofa. Want to crochet a set of patriotic disc place mats? Easy! Just stop crocheting after the motif and you have the perfect size for your place setting. Make as many as you need.
