This crochet yellow-blue Ukrainian Heart I dedicate to a beautiful country where I was born and to its brave people who have amazed the whole world with their courage and their strong will to defend their freedom.
I live in the US now, but Ukraine will always be my motherland, my country where I spent more than half of my life, and will always be the country “where I am from”.
My crochet Heart of Ukraine is made in traditional colors of the Ukrainian flag – golden yellow color on the bottom and blue color on the top.
But do you know what these colors mean? Blue represents the sky and yellow represents the wheat fields under it. Ukraine has been known as “the bread basket” and the nation is very proud of its harvests from its famous rich, black soil.
You can make this Ukrainian Heart for yourself, for your friends, or for anybody in support of Ukraine, its people, and their freedom.
