Show off your patriotic pride with this quick and easy Stars and Stripes Bunting! The stars are motifs that can be made in a solid color; in a red, white, and blue variegated yarn; or you can even make each of the 3 rounds a different color: one red, one white, and one blue. The stripes come in at the ribbon holding the stars together. Again you can make it solid, variegated or one of each of the 3 rows a different color. Of course, you can also make this bunting in any other colors you would like; or you can make the stars alone for coasters or appliques. There is a video and a chart for the stars as well plenty of photos. Enjoy!
Any really, for bunting I recommend a worsted weight or DK weight so it is not too small, and for coasters I recommend cotton yarn so that it absorbs any liquid. For the samples I used a variegated cotton mill end yarn (so I am unsure of the brand) and red, white, and blue Red Heart Super Saver Yarn
STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS USED:
sl st ~ slip stitch

Whichever size works with your yarn
It will depend on your yarn, with worsted weight yarn and a 5.00 mm hook the stars are about 4.5" across.

Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
