What you need to know

Celebrate a Coronation with our red, white and blue knitted bunting pattern.

Make sure your local street party is a colourful affair with this fabulous and eye-catching bunting courtesy of Nicola Valiji. Whether you knit a short string to adorn your living room, or work together with other knitters to cover your whole neighbourhood with red, white and blue, it’s sure to get you into the royal mood for Coronation day. If you’re looking for a project to take you past the Coronation day, it’s easy to switch out the colours and omit the crowns for a year-round party-starter.

What do I need?

Yarn: Cygnet Silcaress DK, shades 2080 White, 2741 Cherry, 2119 Cornflower, one 100g ball of each
Needles: 4mm
Pearl beads: 8mm, 18
Tapestry needle


Triangle: 16.5cm high, plus tassel
Hanging string: 140cm long

Top knit tips

There is enough yarn left over to make more of the triangles, but you will need to make the hanging string longer.

The tassels on the bunting really make it feel like a fun party decoration. To make the small tassels, first cut 32 strands of the yarn, each approximately 16cm long. Place them together, fold the bundle in half and tie a piece of yarn tightly around the point where they are folded. Bind another length of thread around the bundle about six times, close to the top, and tie off, to form the head of the tassel. Trim the ends neatly.
