Elodie’s Bunting- FREE CROCHET PATTERN

Elodies Bunting-Free Pattern.jpg
Elodie’s Bunting is a product of an idea I had when my daughter was turning 1. So I decided to make a bunting for decoration and while chatting with my husband I came up with an idea. I would make a bunting every year for her birthday and when she turns 18 and is about to go to Uni I would connect all the triangles from the bunting into a blanket. Some years I will design my own and some I will just make from another designer’s pattern. The first year I used someone else’s pattern and this year I have designed one of my own. In the end it is best to block the triangles before connecting into bunting.

Materials
Yarn- any you want, I used the #3 for the hooks 2,5mm-3mm ( I used the hook 3mm), and the size that came out was 6.5 inches as length of one triangle side. Scissors and needle for weaving in ends are needed as well.
Important
Pattern is written in US terms.
Pattern is done in rounds.
Sl st will not be counted as a stitch as well as ch’s within the pattern.
Bobble stitch holds an extra ch to fasten it, look at abbreviations.
Abbreviations

MC-magic circle
Ch- chain

Dc- double crochet
Sl st- slip stitch
Sp- space
Sk st-skip stitch
Sc2inc- increase with 2 sc’s in same st
Hdc2inc- increase with 2 hdc’s in same st

Connecting the triangles into a bunting
As for connecting the buntings there are two ways I do it. Starting with about 20-30 (depending on yarn) ch and then sc over one side of the triangle, more ch between (again your choice, I would at least do 5- I usually do 10). There is one other sturdier way (not really needed unless you like it). This one is shown in my reels on IG and on my Pinterest Idea Pins. So please look it up there.
