Bunting Pattern

This pretty knitted bunting is perfect for decorating inside or outside for parties, and a great way to use up leftover yarns from your stash – the knitted flags look best in a mix of different colours and textures.

Only simple stitches are used, so it’s a great pattern for beginners.

The bunting knitting pattern is great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a great project for practising garter stitch and learning how to increase/decrease.

You can even experiment and personalise the flags by adding embroidered initials or knitted bobbles.

The bunting flag size can also be adapted if you want to make them smaller or larger.
