Bunting Knitting Pattern

A Basic Level Knitting Pattern

The bunting pattern is easy to follow, knitting each triangle flat on straight needles.

Great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a great project for practicing garter stitch and learning how to increase.

Bunting flags are often seen made from fabric, fabric buntings made from cotton fabric are popular but knitted bunting is a great way to use up your yarn stash.

What size should bunting triangles be?

These bunting triangles are 6 inches/15 cm in length and 6 inches/15 cm wide.

You could easily adjust the size of the flags by casting on more stitches and knitting more rows.

How far apart are flags on bunting?

The flags are spaced around 5 or 6 cm/13/14 cm apart from each other.

  5. Knit 3 rows in garter stitch.

  8. Link together by stitching yarn through the first flag, leaving a section of thread and repeating, sewing through the next flag and every piece until you get to the last flag.
  9. I would create a loop of yarn at the beginning and end of the banner so you can easily hook it onto something to hang.
