Crocheted Bunting Pattern

One Sunday afternoon this Summer I started crocheting these triangles and before I knew it there were enough for a bunting! 


A quick puff of steam from the iron and a bit of tugging made all the points Pretty and Perky.  =)  I was delighted with the results and set about to find the Perfect Place to display my new bunting.

Across the mantel ... no.
Tacked to the bookcase ... no. 
Sewing Room window ... yes!


Here is a close up off the triangle:


And here is the pattern:

  • Ch 3 (= 1 DC), 4 DC, Ch 3 ... 1st side and corner done
  • 5 DC, Ch 3 ... 2nd side and corner done
  • 5 DC, Ch 3 ... 3rd side and corner done
  • Slip stitch to top of first ch 3 to finish round
  • Clip yarn and pull through loop to fasten.
Round 2:
  • Slip stitch new color in any Ch3 corner to join
  • Chain 3 (= 1 DC), 2 DC, Ch3, 3DC ... 1st corner done 
  • 1 DC in the next 5DC ... 1st side done

Round 3:
  • The corners are made the same way as in Round 2 - 3DC, Ch3, 3DC
  • The sides are made the same way as in Round 2, except you will make 11 DC instead of 5 DC.
  • Slip stitch to join round.
  • Clip yarn to pull through loop and fasten off.
Round 4: 
  • The corners are made the same way as in Round 3 - 3DC, Ch3, 3DC
  • The sides are made the same way as in Round 3, except you will make 17 DC instead of 11 DC.
  • Slip stitch to join round.
  • Clip yarn to pull through loop and fasten off.
Joining Triangles:
  • Layout triangles in the order you'd like them connected and choose the yarn you want to use across the tops to join them
  • Chain 25 to 30 to form a string for attaching to wall, bookcase, or mantel.
  • SC across the top of the first triangle ... 23 stitches total.
  • Pick up the 2nd triangle and SC across the top of it ... 23 stitches total.
  • Continue in this manner until all triangles are connected.
  • Chain 25 or 30 for the second string to match the other side.  

Ta-Dah!!!!
