QT Crochet: Laos Flag + Flag Pattern

Our friend's daughter was turning 1. A big celebration was in order and we celebrated with Laos Cuisine Platters, Buddhist blessing, cake, and games. 
In order to celebrate her birthday, my husband came up with the idea to celebrate her heritage through a afghan cover of her flag. This is the new version of the flag, the original has elephants.
