  13. Edge the pennant row 1: Join the yarn in the top left hand corner of the pennant. Ch1 and make 1dc in the same stitch. Working along the side edge of the pennant towards the ‘point’, make 20dc evenly along the edge to the ‘point’.

  15. Working along the other side of the pennant, make 20dc evenly along the edge until you reach the top. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Join pennants

  1. Make as many pennants as you want in your string and lay them out in the order you want them to be connected. Ch20.
  2. *Join the chain to the top, of right hand side of farthest right pennant. Make 1dc in every stitch along the top of the pennant to the end* and ch1.
  3. Repeat from * to * until all the pennants are joined together. Ch20, fasten off and weave in ends.
  4. Starting at the far right end, join at the start of the Ch20 from the previous step. Make 1dc in every stitch to the end. When you reach the chain between the pennants take care that the ch1 is not twisted. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
  5. Repeat step 4.
  6. Take the end chain pieces and turn them back on themselves in line with the top side edge of the closest pennant and sew into place to create a hanging loop. Enjoy!
