Heart Bunting Crochet Pattern


Due to many requests I have finally written down the crochet pattern to my heart bunting, which I designed a while ago now, but still hangs beautifully in my kitchen.

Perfect for the summer to decorate your gazebos or beach huts, maybe for a newborn baby room or for a birthday special occasion. A simple project but with great results.

You can watch the video tutorial here:


Recommended Materials
  • DK/Light worsted weight cotton yarn
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle and scissors
Pattern is in US terminology

HC = heart colour
W = white 

Pattern

Round 1
Using HC, and working into a magic circle, crochet 4tr, 3dc, 1tr, 3dc, 4tr, pull to tighten, sl st into magic circle to finish


If you prefer you can ch4, sl st in 1st ch to form a loop and work the stitches above into the loop.

Round 2
Keeping heart tight and bringing yarn to front ch1, 2sc in next st (1st tr from previous round), 2hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, 2hdc in next st, 1sc in next 3 sts, [1sc, 1dc, 1sc] in the next st, 1sc in next 3 sts, 2hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, 2hdc in next st, 2sc in last st, sl st in ch1 to join, joining W as you sl st.

Finishing
Pull up yarn to create loop, fasten off and placing finger through loop to secure, double knot in place, tie in all tail ends if required.

Repeat rounds 1-3 to make lots of hearts,

Bunting
Using the same hook and yarn as hearts, ch20 between hearts, joining hearts as you go.
