Crochet Bunting

Crochet bunting is the cutest addition to any room.
It’s a great statement decoration at parties – one that you can dig out time and time again – but it can also be hung as a permanent feature to add some everyday jazziness (new word?!).

I’m generally scared of bright colours in the home, so one of the good things about making your own crochet bunting is that you can tailor it to best suit your environment; indoor or out.

Crochet bunting also makes for a lovely personal gift for a pregnant friend that’s preparing the nursery, or as a keepsake for a bride-to-be; especially when each flag is handmade by your closest friends and family.

Now, fellow crocheters will always say ‘don’t buy cheap yarn!’, but the value stuff really does have its place – and it’s definitely for projects like this – where you don’t want to splash out but you do want good results.

I’ve used James C Brett Top Value dk yarn in a mix of shades from Love Crochet, with a 4mm hook.

To start, ch 2

Step 1: Work 2 dc into the second ch from the hook (2)

Step 2: Ch 1 and turn, work 2 dc into the first st, and 1 dc into the remaining st (3)

Step 3: Ch 1 and turn, work 2 dc into the first st, and 1 dc into the remaining 2 st (4)

Step 4: Ch 1 and turn, work 2 dc into the first st, and 1 dc into the remaining 3 st (5)

Step 5: Ch 1 and turn, work 2 dc into the first st, and 1 dc into the remaining 4 st (6)
… cont.

Step 6: Work this pattern through until you’ve reached your desired flag length/width. I worked 17 rounds for my flags.

Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

Repeat until you have crocheted the number of flags you’d like to use for your bunting.

Step 7: Work 1 row of sc across the top of each flag in your chain colour (I chose white)

Step 8: Take your chain colour yarn and ch 10, attach your first flag with a sc and work 1 sc into each st along

Step 9: Ch 5 between flags
…cont. until all of your flags are joined.

Step 10: Ch 10 once all of your flags are connected.

Fasten off.

And all that’s left to do is find the perfect spot to hang your bunting.
