Bunting is a great way to dress up your outdoor space. This pattern uses Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton, which is 100% cotton, so it is easy care, making it great for outdoor decorations! I have made this sample in red white and blue as part of my Patriotic Party KAL, but you can make it in any colors you want for any occasion. This bunting is made with the triangular flags attached to the hanging cord as it is knit, so when you are done, there is no assembly required! Add some tassels to the bottoms of the flags to dress it up even more.
