Who doesn’t love a string of colourful bunting flags fluttering in the breeze? They remind me of celebrations… weekends… summer… parties… holidays! This shawl has a built-in border of bunting which runs all along the trailing edge. Every time you complete a section of the pattern you get one more bunting point.

Instructions are given to work 5 sections, and then (based on remaining yardage), an optional 6th section is also offered.

Instructions are written and charted. The sample pictured here uses Happy-Go-Knitty merino/silk “Kashgar” 4ply. The sample has all 6 sections knit; and the last section has switched C2 and C3 so that it gives a contrasting colour effect for the final block (this is not shown in the chart or specified in the instructions, but you can easily make the switch yourself just by substituting your own colours).

These figures should help you decide whether you have the yardage for five or six sections:

Approximate yardage used after 5 sections completed, not counting the final 4 rows or the bind off: C1: 465yd; C2: 280yd; C3: 37yd (you will need a little extra to work the last 4 stripe rows and the bind off if you decide to stop here).

Approximate yardage used after 6 sections completed, plus final 4 rows and bind off, and with C2 and C3 switched just for that section: C1: 505yd, C2: 305yd, C3: 160yd
