Rainbow Bunting | Free Crochet Pattern
A crochet rainbow bunting is a great way to add some color and a little extra joy to your office or classroom as school starts. I can imagine how great this would look over a chalk board or along a shelf. Or it would even look great as an accent on a craft fair table.
As most of you know, my new IKEA pegboard is one of my favorite installations in my work space. I LOVE how organized it keeps my things and how it looks on the wall. But every work space needs a pop of color.
I added this rainbow bunting (or a banner, if you prefer) to liven up the space. It’s done using one cake of Lion Brand Mandala, in Gnome. If you use the whole cake, it will make a very long bunting, so I only used portions of each color. But if you want a bunting that is about 3 triangles per color, you can use the whole thing.
All Lion Brand Yarn is 25% off at Joann Fabric until August 29th!

Bind off. You can weave in ends or leave them and crochet over them when you make the chain.
For consistent color changes, cut and attach tassel after each triangle.
Cut 12 10-inch pieces. Hold together and fold in half. Use hook to draw center loop through the ch-1 space in Row 2. Pull loose ends through loop and pull tight to create tassel. Wait until very end to cut to desired length so tassels are even.
Ch 20, 23 sc across Row 11 of 1st triangle, *ch 10, 23 sc across Row 11 of next triangle, repeat from * until all triangles are on chain, Ch 20. Tie off both ends tightly.
