Texas Independence Day

On February 28, 1836, a group of Texians came together at Washington-on-the-Brazos to declare independence from Mexico and declare Texas as a Republic. The Texas Declaration of Independence was signed on March 2, 1836. Sixty men signed the document, 57 of whom had moved from the United States to Texas after the Mexican government had promised them a republican government. War had begun several months before and ended with the capture of Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1936. The signing of the declaration took place while the Battle of the Alamo was raging in San Antonio.

To celebrate my favorite state, this year I’ve made an easy C2C potholder using the Texas flag as inspiration.


Dishie cotton worsted yarn – 1/2 oz. each red, white, blue

Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook


Working in C2C format:

Row 1: 1 red square

Row 2: 2 red squares

Row 3: 3 red squares

Row 4: 4 red squares

Row 5: 5 red squares

Row 6: 5 red squares, 1 white square (wrong side)

Row 7: 2 white squares, 5 red squares

Row 8: 5 red squares, 3 white squares

Row 9: 4 white squares, 5 red squares

Row 10: 5 red squares, 5 white squares

Begin to decrease on top of flag (white side), increase on bottom of flag (red side)

Row 11: 5 white squares, 4 red squares, 1 blue square (right side)

Row 12: 2 blue squares, 3 red squares, 5 white squares

Row 13: 5 white squares, 2 red squares, 3 blue squares

Row 14: 4 blue squares, 1 red square, 5 blue squares. Fasten off red.

Row 15: 5 white squares, 5 blue squares

Begin to decrease both sides

Row 16: 5 blue, 4 white

Row 17: 3 white, 5 blue

Row 18: 5 blue, 2 white

Row 19: 1 white, 5 blue. Fasten off white.

Row 20: 5 blue

Row 21: 4 blue

Row 22: 3 blue

Row 23: 2 blue

Row 24: 1 blue

If you would like to put a hanging lp on the corner of your potholder, make the last square of Row 24: ch 3, dc, ch 10, sl st in 10th ch, 2 dc, sl st in next square.

Fasten off blue. Weave in all ends.


With white yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), 5 sc in 2nd ch. Join with sl st. *ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sl st in next sc,* 5 times. Fasten off white leaving 12″ length. Sew star to center of blue portion of potholder.
