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.

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.
