Grand Old Bunting is a great way to dress up your space. This pattern uses 100% cotton yarn, so it’s easy care, making it perfect for outdoor decorations!

I have made this sample in red white and blue as part of my Patriotic Party KAL, but you can make it in any colors you want for any occasion. Grand Old Bunting is made with the triangular flags attached to the hanging cord as it is knit, so when you are done, there is no assembly required! Add some tassels to the bottoms of the flags to dress it up even more.

The yarn for this design was provided by Lion Brand. All opinions are my own.
