Knitted Bunting

by Christina

Hello friends!

It’s a rather rainy day here… perfect for a bit of knitting. I have forgotten to share with you some lovely bunting I made for Easter… well, spring in general.

Inspired by Lori’s lovely bunting I decided it was about time I made some for myself.

I found that this was a simple and easy project to carry around with me while John played outside. It tucked easily into my purse and well, was generally addictive so I think I’m going to have to knit another.

knitted pendants

1 skein Plymouth Kudo (worsted weight yarn, approx.  198 yds)
US #7 needles (I used 2 dpns since they were short and easy to carry around)
Size H crochet hook

Cast on 20 stitches using the long-tail cast on method.
Rows 1 – 6: K
Row 7: K2, ssk, k to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2
Row 8 – 10: K
Repeat rows 7 – 10, seven times
Row 11: k2, k2tog, k2
Row 12: K
Row 13: k1, slip 1 st k2tog pass slip st over, k1
Row 14: k
Row 15: slip 1 st k2tog pass slip st over
cut the yarn and bring it through the last loop to bind off.
Weave in ends

To create the cord, using the US Size H crochet hook, chain 14, *chain across the top of a pendant, chain 6*, repeat from * until you have desired length, chain 16, turn and single crochet into each of the chains to the end. Pull yarn through last loop and weave in ends.

I didn’t block  my bunting, but I suppose you could.

For my fireplace bunting which measures 70 inches I made 8 pendants.

Currently I’m reading “Below Stairs”. I love “Upstairs Downstairs” and Gosford Park - this is right in the same genre.

Joining with Ginny - Happy Knitting!

  1. How cute!! This would be great in our school/sewing room. This may just be my next project. Thanks.

  2. I love this! We are repainting our living room right now, and I would love to knit a bunting to go with the new color scheme!
