Knitted Bunting


What you need  Knitted Bunting

8ply wool

4.25mm or 4.5mm Knitting needles

Extra yarn for binding edge

 

NOTE: You may choose to use 5mm hooks or needles in which case, cast on between 35 and 40 stitches depending on your tension. This will make an 8″ triangle.

What you have to do

To make a 6” triangle, cast on 40 stitches. To make a 10” triangle, cast on 50 stitches

Step 1: Cast on 40 stitches leaving a 4” tail with the first stitch. So that the bunting can be tied together.

Step 2: Knit 2 rows

Step 3: At the beginning of each row, knit the first 2 stitches together to start decreasing the sides.

Step 4: When you get to the last stitch, draw thread thru to fasten off and weave the tail into the triangle. If you are attaching a tassel, then leave a tail to sew the tassel on.

Note: Size may vary with different wool plys. The size variant isn’t important in this case as it will make our bunting unique.

How to string the bunting together

Knitfest asks if you would kindly send us your triangles individually so that our wonderful team of volunteers can assemble the bunting as needed but if you would like to make some for yourself at home, here’s how you put it all together. Please tie in your ends.

Using 2 threads of yarn, double crochet along the top of bunting ‘flags’ for required length. When finished required length, tie off.

Note: Add about 2ft extra at each end to tie around posts or across your room.
