We love crochet buntings and garlands! It doesn’t matter what they look like and what color you make them in, they are perfect to give rooms a little touch of joy.
And if you use want to use them to decorate an open air party, they’re definitely the best you can get! 🙂
Making your own crochet buntings really couldn’t be easier, you only have to follow these instructions:
Row 1: start by crocheting 3 chains and then crochet 2 double crochets in the third chain counting from the crochet hook. Turn the project around.
Row 2: crochet 1 chain, then crochet 1 half treble crochet in the next stitch and 2 half treble crochets in the last stitch. Turn the project around.
Row 3: crochet 1 chain, then crochet 1 half treble crochet in each of the stitches until you get to the last stitch, crochet 2 half treble crochets into the last stitch. Turn the project around.
Repeat the third row 3 until you have completed 15 rows and until you have a total of 15 stitches.
This means: crochet 1 chain at the start of each row and then crochet 1 half treble crochet into each of the stitches until you get to the last stitch and crochet 2 half treble crochets into the last stitch.
That means that the total number of stitches increases by 1 in each row. You’ll see how it slowly forms a triangle!
When you are done, don’t cast off the last stitch.
Now we are going to continue crocheting half treble crochets around the rim of each bunting, in order to make it look better and more defined.
Continue at the side of the bunting and crochet 1 half treble crochet into each of the spaces between the stitches at the rim.
When you get to the tip of the bunting, crochet 1 half treble crochet, 1 single crochet and 1 half treble crochet in the same stitch.
Continue crocheting half treble crochets at the other border. Finish by crocheting a slip stitch when you get to the upper end of the bunting.
And now you’re finished with your bunting!
Repeat the previous steps until you have enough buntings to create an entire garland.
Once you are done with all the buntings, the moment has arrived to join them. Cut a thread that is long enough to put it up on the wall with and then simply thread it through the stitches of each bunting, as you can see in the image.
Mix buntings of different colors as you like.
And now the moment has come to put up you garland 🙂
As you can see, you can use different colors that match the decoration of the room where you want to put up the garland (if you want to use them for a party it’s a good idea to match colors which fit the theme of the party).
In addition to that, you can customize them adding or framing the rims of each bunting with text, what do you think?
