Bedroom Bunting

Inspired by the beautiful knitted bunting at ‘The Broca’ in Brockley I thought this bunting might girlify my pretty boring bedroom. I’ve just been making a few pieces in between other projects as each flag takes about 10 minutes to make. These are really easy as they use a very simple garter stitch. In some pieces I’ve used two different colour wools together to create a different look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The simple bunting pattern will create a flag that will need to be sewn to a ribbon, for my flags I knitted in a loop for a ribbon to thread through as I hate sewing. You could experiment with different sizes of wool or needles but the basic pattern is the same.

Simple Bunting Pattern

Using 1 or 2 threads cast on 20 stitches

Row 1: Knit all 20 stitches

Row 2: Knit all 20 stitches

Row 3: Knit all 20 Stitches

Row 4: Knit 2 stitches together (K2tog), knit until last 2 stitches, Knit 2 stitches together (K2tog)

 

Repeat rows 1-4 until there are only 2 stitches left on the needle.

Next row: K2tog

Cast off final stitch.

 

Bunting with loop for ribbon

First 10 rows: knit all 20 stitches

To make the ribbon loop:

Fold the bottom hem upwards to meet the stitches on the needle

Knit each stitch together with a stitch from the hem joining the two together.

Continue as follows:

Row 2: Knit all 20 stitches

Row 3: Knit all 20 Stitches

Row 4: Knit 2 stitches together (K2tog), knit until last 2 stitches, Knit 2 stitches together (K2tog)

  1. I’m setting up a new independent wool shop in Formby, Merseyside and want to get people knitting bunting as advance promotion for my launch in March 2015. Your pattern is great, it’s so simple but looks really effective. Would you mind me distributing the pattern for free – crediting you of course! – to as many people I can get interested as possible?

    If you could email me a reply I’d be really grateful

    Thank you!

    • Hi Isabel,
      I only just received a message asking me to approve this question which is odd as I see you posted it a while ago. I know I am too late to answer your question about bunting, but I am always happy for the patterns on this site to be distributed for free 🙂
