What you need to know

Pretty eyelets and glistening beads combined with pastel shades give this bunting a sophisticated feel. There are seven pretty flags to knit, all joined using a clever I-cord cast-off and we’ll be releasing a brand new flag each week. You’ll get to grips with lace techniques and learn how to place beads using the crochet hook method. Make this bunting as long as you wish by making multiple flags.

“Work the I-cord edge at the beginning and end of each bunting flag row loosely. It can be helpful to pull down on the edge a couple of times while working the first three stitches of each row to encourage the I-cord edge into shape.”

How to: work eyelets (yfwd/yrn)

Eyelets are useful in creating holes for edgings, drawstrings and lace patterns. The yarn forward (yfwd) is used between two knit stitches, and a yarn round needle (yrn) between two purl stitches.
