Grand Old Bunting ~ Free Knit Pattern by Jessie At Home

Grand Old Bunting
Free Knit Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Bunting is a great way to dress up your outdoor space. This pattern uses Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton, which is 100% cotton, so it is easy care, making it great for outdoor decorations! I have made this sample in red white and blue as part of my Patriotic Party KAL, but you can make it in any colors you want for any occasion. This bunting is made with the triangular flags attached to the hanging cord as it is knit, so when you are done, there is no assembly required! Add some tassels to the bottoms of the flags to dress it up even more.

With main color, CO 396, placing markers as follows: co 63, pm, [co 36, pm] 8 times, co on remaining 45.
Turn, BO to first marker.
To add or subtract flags from the bunting: add or subtract 1 repeat of [co 36, pm] to the cast on for each flag you want to add or subtract from the bunting. This will add or subtract 36 from the entire cast on count for each flag you add or subtract.

Row 1: Remove marker, bind off one more st, k 17 sts, place marker. – There will be 18 sts on the right needle: the last st from the bind off and the 17 more that were knit, the flag will be made using these 18 sts, and the remaining sts will be left alone.
Row 2: Turn, do not cut main color, switch to flag color, k to end. – 18 sts
Row 3: Turn, k to end. – 18 sts
Row 4:
Turn, k2tog, k to end. – 17 sts
Row 5 ~ 6: Turn, k to end.
Row 7: Turn, k2tog, k to end.
Repeat rows 5 ~7: until only 2 sts remain, then knit last 2 stitches together and end off, leaving a long tail.

Remove marker, pick up main color and BO to next marker.

Repeat from the first round of the flag 8 more times, then continue binding off all the remaining sts.
If you added or subtracted flags, the number of repeats will change by the same number of flags you added or subtracted.

Fold the ends of the bunting in a few inches and sew together to make hanging loops on each end.

Weave in all ends.

Add tassels to the bottom of each flag if desired.

Hang and enjoy!
