# Purple Heart Crochet Pattern – Free Blanket Square

The purple heart blanket square was created to honor those men and women in our armed forces who were either wounded in action or paid the ultimate price for our country.

August 7th is National Purple Heart Day, which is why it is our August square for the Holiday Celebrations Blanket.

The Holiday Celebrations Blanket has 12 monthly squares. – One square to celebrate each of the 12 months. Some will be holiday squares, some will celebrate other things such as the seasons. All squares are made using the corner-to-corner method.

There are 19 different squares to mix and match, which means you can customize and make it your own.

At the end of the year you’ll have a finished blanket!

If you’d like all the squares ahead of time and not wait for each month’s release, the bundle is available at a discount HERE.

**WHY HOLIDAY SQUARES?**

My 15 year old daughter wanted to crochet one of my c2c squares that I had designed. That led into an entire conversation of her asking if she could make “a bunch of squares” for me and make them into a blanket for herself. Why, yes you can!

So we talked for a while and came up with a plan for a whole blanket circling around the holidays and what we celebrate each month.

She is making each of these squares herself, so please be patient if the squares are a bit late with updated pictures or they’re not professional quality. She’s having fun and making herself a blanket! :)
