Crocheted Triangle Bunting...

These little triangles were fun to crochet. Super easy too. It made a cute little bunting to hang up. I am very happy with how it turned out.


The pattern:

chain 2
2 single crochet in the first chain
chain 1 and turn
2 single crochet each stitch
chain 1 and turn
2 single crochet in the first stitch and 1 single crochet in each stitch after
chain 1 and turn
repeat *2 single crochet in the first stitch and 1 single crochet in each stitch after * until your triangle is as big as you want it.

I crochet 13 rows using Lily Sugar 'n Cream and a size J/10 6mm hook. I also crocheted a row of chains/single crochets across the top for hanging. 



This is the first time I have ever blocked a crocheted project. I folded and placed a beach towel on the carpeted floor in a spot where no one would walk on them. I laid out and pinned down my triangles, giving them a nice shape with a little tension but not pulled too tightly. And then I got them really wet with water using a spray bottle. The hardest part was leaving them until they were completely dry.

But, it was worth the wait. They are nice and flat and well shaped.




You'll have to let me know if you make your own crocheted triangle bunting. I'm sure you'll love it.
