Here’s a pattern I wrote recently for another class I was teaching – I’ve only made three bunting triangles for this sample but you could make it as long as you like! I hope you like it x
Crochet Spring Bunting:
You will need:
DK yarn in a variety of colours (I have used white, yellow, pink and green)
4mm crochet hook
Needle for sewing in ends
To make the bunting triangles:
With yellow yarn, ch6 and join with a slip stitch to form a foundation ring.
Ch3 (counts as a tr), 11tr into the ring and slst to join (12tr)
Change to white yarn, join in any stitch, ch3, sk1, ss into next stitch – continue all the way around (will give you 6 chain spaces).
*Slip stitch into next chain space, ch2, her, 2tr, 2htr, ss into next ch space* continue all the way around. Cut the yarn and fasten off with white.
Join the pink yarn in between 2tr. Dc. *ch4 then between the next 2tr (2tr, ch3, 2tr), ch4, dc in between next 2tr*. Continue around, slst to join. (This will form 3 corners)
Ch2 (counts as a htr), *4htr around chain, htr into next 2 stitches, then (2htr, ch3, 2htr) into corner space. Htr into next 2 stitches, 4htr around chain, htr into dc from previous round*, continue to end, join with a slst and fasten off.
For the border:
Join the green yarn in a corner space, ch3, sk1, slst into next stitch, *ch3, sk1, slst into next stitch* continue all the way around two sides of the triangle (at the tip/corner of the triangle slst into corner space, ch3, slst into corner space again, then continue as before).
Fasten off after two sides are done. Repeat for each bunting triangle.
Joining the bunting:
With green yarn ch10, slst into first ch to form a loop (this will enable you to hang the bunting easily). Then ch25. This is when I joined my first bunting triangle – dc into each stitch along the side of the triangle that doesn’t have a border yet. Then ch15 again before adding your next triangle, and continue like this until all triangles have been added. After the last triangle ch35, then slst into the 10th chain from the hook to form a matching hanging loop to the one at the other end. Weave in ends. (Obviously if you want the triangles closer/further apart you can vary the number of ch stitches in between).
