Pattern - Mini Rainbow Bunting

Mini crochet bunting, I love you! I am sightly addicted to making these little triangles. They are fab for brightening up a shelf or a nook.

I made my first set a couple of years ago when I made my sister and brother in-law's wedding cake. I used the little bunting as a topper to spell out their names!

I then made some again for my boy's fifth birthday cake, again spelling his name and age.

I thought I would share the pattern with you and you can keep them basic or customise as you like!

Pattern in UK Terminology

Hook - 4mm

Cotton 4ply in whatever colours you wish to use.
I used Scheepjes Catona in rainbowy colours, with a White to join.

The little triangles measure 3cm x 3cm


With any colour, make a magic ring

Row 1 - Ch1 (does not count as a st throughout), 2 dc into ring, turn and close the ring (2 sts)

Row 2 - Ch1, 1 dc in each st up to last st, 2 dc in last st, turn (3 sts)

Row 3 - Repeat Row 2 (4 sts)

Row 4 - Repeat Row 2 (5 sts)

Row 5 - Repeat Row 2 (6 sts)

Row 6 - Repeat Row 2 (7 sts)

Row 7 - Repeat Row 2 (8 sts)

Row 8 - Repeat Row 2 (9 sts)

Fasten off and weave in ends
Make as many as you like to make the bunting as long as you need it. For the bunting in the picture I made 4 of each of the 6 colours and that gave me a length of 120cm bunting

Making up

With white, ch25
Pick up 1 triangle and dc in each of the 9 sts along the top, ch6, pick up next triangle and dc in each of the 9 sts along the top, repeat until you have used all your triangles, finish with ch25 and fasten off
Tip - keep this bit loose so the bunting keeps it shape and hangs nicely 

Ta-dah! All done!
If you make this bunting, I'd love to see your finished makes!
