You're a Grand Old Flag
by George M. Cohan
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
Show off your patriotism with our self striping American Flag sock yarn. Red and white stripes are set off by a wider stripe of blue with stars. No ends to weave in, let the yarn do the work for you.
Sample sock is 64 stitches around, about 8 stitches per inch. This is the Penny Sock pattern.If you'd like to see what others have done with this yarn, please check out the projects on Ravelry. *Note: the picture above shows the pattern on a different (discontinued) yarn, please see our other striping yarns on Safari to see the actual yarn base used.*

Hand or machine wash cool with wool appropriate pH neutral detergent or shampoo with a splash of vinegar, dry flat. For best results, hand wash quickly in cool, remove from water promptly. A color catcher may be a good idea. I set the red and make sure it doesn't bleed, however your water and detergent will have different chemistry and thus possibly different results.

This yarn is approved by Socks for Soldiers for leisure socks, and The Painted Tiger is proud to support their efforts.
