Stars and Stripes Bunting
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
Show off your patriotic pride with this quick and easy Stars and Stripes Bunting! The stars are motifs that can be made in a solid color; in a red, white, and blue variegated yarn; or you can even make each of the 3 rounds a different color: one red, one white, and one blue. The stripes come in at the ribbon holding the stars together. Again you can make it solid, variegated or one of each of the 3 rows a different color. Of course, you can also make this bunting in any other colors you would like; or you can make the stars alone for coasters or appliques. There is a video and a chart for the stars as well plenty of photos. Enjoy!
Any really, for bunting I recommend a worsted weight or DK weight so it is not too small, and for coasters I recommend cotton yarn so that it absorbs any liquid. For the samples I used a variegated cotton mill end yarn (so I am unsure of the brand) and red, white, and blue Red Heart Super Saver.
STITCHES AND ABBRIVIATIONS USED:
sl st ~ slip stitch
ch ~ chain
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet

Whichever size works with your yarn
It will depend on your yarn, with worsted weight yarn and a 5.00 mm hook the stars are about 4.5” across.
Make a magic loop, or make 3 chains and join in a ring.

Finish off and weave in ends.
Rnd 1: Ch 20, join with a sl st to first ch to form a loop for hanging, ch 30, *3dc in a ch-2 point of a star, ch 30, rep from * until all stars are attached, place a marker, ch 20, sl st in marked st to form a hanging loop.
Rnd 2: Sc in next ch and each ch and dc across until the other hanging loop is reached.
