BUNTING FOR BEGINNERS
A go-to recipe for dressing up a room or preparing for a party – just add bunting! Colourful flags are so cheerful and easy to make too. This pattern combines a little bit of knitting with a little bit of crochet, but you’ll only need the basics for both.
Materials: worsted weight yarn in as many colours as you like (we used 4 flag colours and 1 connecting colour). One 100 gr, 200m/220yd skein makes approximately 30 flags.
4.5mm/US7 straight needles, 4 mm/US6 crochet hook, darning needle, scissors.
Gauge: 20sts per 10cm/4” on 4.5mm/US7 needle
Flag size: W 8cm/3.25”, H 5.5cm/2.25”
To make flag:
CO 3 sts and K 1 row.
Next row: *SL1, M1, K to end of row*, repeat till 15 sts on the needle.
Bind off and weave in ends.
Continue to make flags till desired number is reached.
Using crochet hook and connecting colour CH 5, * 1SC into each bound off stitch of a flag, CH 20*, repeat until all the flags are connected, end last repeat with CH5.
SL1: slip one
M1: make one
CH: chain (crochet)
SC: single crochet
Level: Knitters must know how to cast on, knit, bind off, how to increase with “make one” and how to both chain and single crochet with a crochet hook.
