Triangle Bunting

Stash-busting Challenge 2021

Last year, Knitting With Chopsticks and Joy Of Motion Crochet had a Stash Busting Challenge where designers shared patterns that could be made with quickly and could help thin out your stash and scraps. Well, this year they decided to do it again.

For this year’s challenge, I designed the Triangle Bunting because I love playing with the granny stitch. It always grows so fast.Also, I don’t really make many decorations for home, so it was a nice change. To download the free pdf of this pattern follow the instructions below. Remember, if you make any of the Stash-busting patterns, use #sbchallenge when sharing. We love seeing your interpretations!

Finishing

Weave in ends. Piece needs to be blocked in order to open up the mesh stitches. When blocking, be sure to stretch piece out somewhat. You can block using any method you prefer. I blocked this by pinning piece to blocking mat, spritzing with water and then letting it air dry.

 

Decide the order you want your garland to be in. With MC, ch 40, then *slst in the top corner of one of the triangles. Slst in each stitch of the top of the triangle.*  ** ch 20**. Repeat * to **, until you reach last triangle. Repeat *to *. Ch 40 and fasten off. Weave in ends.
