Good Evening Crafters,
I am currently working on a huge quantity of Homemade Christmas decorations, mainly crochet based, which will all feature in a blog soon. In the meantime please see the below Crochet Bunting Tutorial! Perfectly festive!
1. – Measure the area you wish to have your bunting in.
2. – Choose a hook and yarn, the thicker the yarn and hook the bigger your bunting will be with the same amount of rounds.
3. – Slip knot onto the hook, and Start a Chain of 4, do a slip-stitch to make a cirle.
4. – Then, do a chain of 3, then 2 double crochets, chain 1, then 3 double crochets, chain 1, then 3 double crochets, chain 1 and join in the top stitch of the first double crochet chunk with a slip stitch.
5. – Then Chain 4 for the next (this will make up one double crochet in that gap, and 1 chain across). When you are on this round, each gap is a corner, so that means 2 sets of 3 double crochets with 1 chain inbetween them in each gap (pictures below).
6.- Then repeat this process until you get around to the first chain you did on this round (you will only need to do a set of 3 double crochets, chain 1 and 2 double crochets as the first chain will make the 3rd double crochet).
7. – Then repeat this process, for as many rounds as you like, doing 3 double crochets in each gap (2 sets in the corners) and 1 chain in between them.
8. – Once you’ve made all the flags you want (they should look something like the below), it’s then time to attach them together.
9. Start with one flag, and chain stich through the top stiches of it right to the other side, then chain 5 between the next flag and then continue to chain along the top of the next one.
10. – Once all your flags are chained together, I like to double crochet them, to make it all a bit more robust (the below is a small sections of some I recently finished for my parents living room, please excuse my duvet cover in the background). Tah Dah! you’re done!
I love crochet bunting, Fabulous for every occasion! The one seen in these pictures is going to be for christmas and I also intend on doing upside down triangles with buttons as deorations to look like Christmas trees!
Happy Crafting xxx
