OK, so I am not the best crocheter in the world, but I try hard, and everyone says my stuff looks good. Here is my delimma. I made an American Flag blanket. Actually made it to the federal specs for flags. (And, let me tell you how hard it was to figure THAT out!) I have the whole blanket, including the border done, but I can't figure out how to do the stars. I have a paper pattern for the star field that is also made to spec, but I am not sure how to go about putting them on. Should I crochet them first and sew them on, or should I crochet them directly onto the blue? I can post pics if need be. Just let me know.
