Perfect Party Pennant Garland

Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue

  • US-F, 3.75mm hook
  • Any worsted weight yarn – each flag as shown uses about 40 yds total, with additional required for rope/swag (Peaches & Creme in White and Sunshine shown)
  • Video tutorials: sc, dc, and working into the edge

For Each Flag:
Row 1: Ch 2, work 3 dc in the 2nd ch from hook. Turn. (3 sts)

Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), work 2 dc in the 1st st, dc in the next st, work 2 dc in the last st. Turn. (5 sts)

Row 3: Ch 2, work 2 dc in the 1st st, dc in each st to last st, work 2 dc in last st. Turn.

Repeat Row 3 until the pennant is the desired size. As shown, go to Row 17. Break yarn and finish off.

For the Rope/Swag:
Chain a rope or swag long enough for all the flags to fit, plus some extra at the ends for hanging, I recommend doing this with a separate skein if possible, and not breaking the yarn or finishing off until the flags are all attached and you can see how long it needs to be for certain.

Edging the Flags and Joining to the Rope:
With the edging color, join with a sl st to the top left corner of the first flag. Sc evenly along the edge to the bottom point. Work 3 sc into the bottom point, then sc evenly along up to the top. At the top right corner, work 2 sc into the corner stitch. Then, positioning the rope behind the top row of the flag, sc in each st along the top of the flag, enclosing the rope in each stitch. At the end of the row, drop the rope and work an additional sc in the side of the top left corner. Break the yarn and seamless join to the first edging sc. Weave in ends. Repeat this process for each flag.

So who will you make a crochet pennant garland for? They’re festive and fun and very green! They make a great tradition when used year after year, and are so much nicer than cheap paper and plastic. I can’t wait to see what you all do with this pattern!

    Did you “kill” the acrylic after making these? My pendants seem to be rolling up on the bottom tips. Would “killing” the acrylic help them lay flatter?

    I LOVE the ideas that come to mind – I’ve never done craft fairs, but am looking to start and I think I’ll be using these – either with my biz name OR with Happy on one, and Holidays below…

    But, I’m starting one soon for my kids’ room to hang above their beds. 😉 Thanks for sharing.

    Rather than chain a rope, do you think it would be possible to border all the pennants, and then fsc up to the first pennant, then sc into the top, and repeat? Wouldn’t that make it so you wouldn’t have to pre measure the rope?
    I’m a relative beginner, so would love your input before I try and modify this to use fsc rather than chain.
    I love all your patterns and videos :-) they’re great for beginners learning new techniques!

      Absolutely! There are several different methods you could use, and they each have their virtues. 😀 Thank you so much!
