A decorative addition to your celebrations! Buntings can be used over and over again, making them a great use of left over yarn scraps. If your a new crocheter and need a visual I have made up a free class on Thinkrific to help.

Abbreviations (AUSTRALIAN TERMS)
Tr – treble

Slst – slip stitch MR – magic ring
For each round change the colour of the yarn. Rounds 1 and 5 have the same colour.
Start with a magic ring.
Rnd 1 – into MR ch3, 2 tr ( 3ch, 3 tr) twice, ch3 slst to 3rd chain. Finish and weave in ends.
Rnd 2 – work standing tr, 2tr, 3 ch, 3tr into a corner space, ( 1ch, 3tr, 3ch, 3tr) into next two corner spaces. 1 ch slst into standing treble. Break yarn, finish and weave in ends
Rnd 3, 4, 5 – start in any 1ch space, starting with a standing tr, work 3 tr into each ch 1 space, in each corner space work (3tr, 3ch, 3tr) join round to beginning standing tr, break yarn, finish and weave in ends.
In one corner of each triangle add a tassel.
Tassels are made by wrapping all 4 yarns around the palm twice and snipping, so that there are 8 lengths of yarn approximately 20cms long.
Fold the strands in half and attach by inserting the folded centre from top to bottom of the triangle and pulling the cut ends around the corner chain of the triangle and through the fold.
Tassels help the triangles to hang nicely.
Row 1 – Crochet a chain about 30 cm, long enough to be used to tie the bunting up with. Dc across the top edge of a triangle, chain as desired between buntings, then dc across next triangle. Once all triangles are joined, make a chain long enough to use as a tie.
Row 2 – DC across the chains and dc on previous row. Break yarn and finish.
