Crochet and cross stitch a blanket to honor a US Veteran. My satisfaction in making this public is the Veterans it honors. I would love to see a photo of your creation, with or without the Vet it's made for! Blessings All.

Crochet and Cross Stitched Veterans Lap Blanket Pattern

 I am making this pattern public due to the volume of vets now returning from active duty in a war zone and for all those who havereturned home, this is my way of saying to all of them "Welcome Home, My Deepest Gratitude and We Love You"
Before making this item please be aware of the FlagCode of the United States.
 
"No disrespect should be shown to the flagof the United States of America." "The flag represents a living country and isitself considered a living thing." 
 I made it for a US Veteran friend and stronglyrecommend it only be made to honor a veteran. If someone is willing to fight under and for it, theyshould be allowed to be covered by it in life.
 Please confirm with the recipient that they would love to have this work of art before making it.
 Additional information regarding the Flag Code.Wikipedia:The
United States Flag Code
establishes advisory rules for display and care of the flag of the United States. It is Section 1 of Title 4 of  the United States Code(4 U.S.C. § 1et seq). This is a U.S. federal law, but there is no penalty for failure to comply with it and it is not  widely enforced — indeed, theU.S. Supreme Court has ruled that punitive enforcement would conflict with theFirst Amendment right  to freedom of speech. (AFlag Desecration Amendment has been proposed from time to time and, if ever passed into law, would  override Supreme Court rulings on this matter.) This etiquette is as applied within U.S. jurisdiction. In other countries and places,local etiquette applies.
