My grand daughter, Molly, is very impressed with the "Merican Flag." I understand most flags are "Merican" as far as she is concerned. When I saw the pattern for this sweater in the Mary Maxim catalog I had to make it for her. I am not really very good at juggling all the colors but I don't think Molly is real particular. Unfortunately I didn't finish it for Christmas but it is quite large and will fit for awhile.
