This Nautical Ocean Breeze Crochet Throw is more appropriate for Fourth of July celebration. Red, white, and blue are typical American colors. It can come in different shades, dark or medium or light reds, whites, and blues. It's up to your preference. Cheers.

I did this pattern in red, white, and blue for my daughter's dorm room! I also added a double-crochet border all the way around it. It turned out beautiful and my daughter loves it!
