Pattern notes

  1. This pattern is written in US terms.
  2. The return pass for every row is the same. For this reason, you will not find instructions for it along with the forward pass instructions.
    • Reverse pass: ch1, (yo, pull through two loops)* all the way till the end of the row. 
  3. Do NOT make the bind off row for the triangles.
  4. You can use multiple colors in the same triangle by changing the color at the beginning of the forward pass. See the Resources section for a tutorial.
  5. I strongly recommend viewing the support video for making this bunting before reading the written instructions.

Instructions 

Triangle (Make 5)

Foundation Row: Chain 2. Make the foundation row stitches (you will have only the first stitch and the last stitch in this row)
Row 1: fs, tfs in every space between two stitches, ls
Rows 2 – 11: Repeat Rows 1. Cut yarn and weave in ends. Do NOT make the bind off row.

Note: You can add / remove rows to adjust the size of the triangles.

Tassels (Make 6)

Make 6 tassels using the method of your choice. You can get creative and use multiple colors in one tassel too!

Assembly

Notes:
1. I used blue yarn to assemble my bunting but you are free to choose any color.
2. I strongly recommend viewing the support video for assembly instructions.

Step 1: With the same Tunisian crochet hook that you used to make the triangles and blue yarn, chain 10.
Step 2: Attach a tassel with a single crochet, chain 5.
Step 3: Attach a triangle using the single crochet bind off method.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you use up all your tassels and triangles with chain 5 in between each tassel and triangle.
Last Step: End with a chain 10.
Cut yarn and weave in all ends.

Modifications

  1. If you are in the mood for making tassels only, or NOT making tassels at all, you can make this bunting with tassels or triangles only.
  2. I made 1.5″ tassels for my bunting but you can make them larger if you’d like. You could even replace them with pom poms!
