Mini crochet bunting pattern

This is a pattern to crochet very simple, mini crochet bunting.  It uses very basic techniques so I think it is suitable for even beginners.

Each pennant is approximately 9.5cm wide and deep.

The pattern uses DK yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. It is written using US crochet terms.

Abbreviations:

Sc – single crochet – insert hook into next stitch, yarn over (yo), pull through stitch (st), (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops.

Hdc – half double crochet – yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 3 loops.

Hdc Decrease – half double crochet decrease – yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into next stitch, yo, pull through first loop (5 loops on hook). yo, pull through all loops on hook.

Row 1 – chain 13

Now for the edging.  Starting at the top left hand corner (it doesn’t make a difference between front and back with this pattern :) put 2sc through the first space in the top outside edge.

Sc evenly along the edge – your stitches should be evenly spaced close enough together that the edge doesn’t get pulled out of shape but not too close together that the edge puckers. As a rough guide I put approximately 26 sc around each pennant.

When you get to the point of the bunting put 2 sc in the same stitch to allow you to turn the corner.

You don’t need to do a second row around the outside but if you would like to follow the same method as the first round. 2sc in first stitch, sc in every stitch apart from the 2sc at the point and 2sc in the last stitch. You can achieve different effects by using different colors and multiple edge rows – try things out and have fun!

Make as many pennants as you want for your string and place them in the order you want them to be in hen they are hung.

You now need to attach them all together and make hanging loops.

Step 1 – Chain 24. Then, remembering that you are working from right to left, sc across the top of the first pennant.

Step 2 – When you reach the end of the top of the first pennant, chain 1, and sc in the top corner of the second pennant.

Work across the top of the pennants in sc putting a single chain in between each pennant until you reach the end of all your pennants.  Chain 24 and fasten off.
