Pretty Party Bunting – Free Pattern!

IMG_2782

Ok, so it didn’t take me very long to get well and truly bitten by the wedding bug… but at least it’s brought out my inner craft goddess.

This week has mainly consisted of giant tissue paper flowers, woolly pompoms, garlands and glue. My latest addition to the (ever growing) wedding decorations pile is some cute crochet bunting, and after wresting with a number of new crafts, I was relieved to go back to doing what I do best.

This adorable bunting is super quick, super versatile, super hard-wearing and can be made in just about any colour and dk/aran weight yarn.

*Disclaimer: I accept no responsibility for your home being completely covered in bunting after you become completely obsessed with making triangles…

Stringing Together

Lay the triangles out in your preferred colour sequence (that’s the tricky bit!).

Using a contrasting yarn of your choice, ch10 and slst to first ch to make a loop. Work 1htr directly into the first ch of your first triangle (the top right-hand corner), and into each ch across.

As you get to the end of the first triangle, grab your next one and continue with 1htr across the top, working into the ch. Continue working along the top ch of each triangle until you have joined all 12 together.

Ch10 and slst to first ch to form a loop, then fasten off and weave in the ends.

I tend not to block my triangles (mainly because I’m too impatient…), instead, I just puff some steam over and squash them for a second with an iron once I’ve finished.

  1. Cute! I love a bit of bunting – I usually make a granny triangle but love this solid approach. (By the way, homemade weddings are the BEST! You’ll have a great time!) xx
