Perfect Party Pennant Garland
- 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!
