Celebrate special holiday seasons with a Knitted Pennant Banner! Continuing my Summer Knit Series and with the 4th of July holiday upon us, my sample is in the colors of our flag with red, white, and blue yarns.

This free knitting pattern includes my fun video tutorial that gives you an overview of everything you need to know, so make sure to check it out! This knitting pattern is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series.

Your triangle shape is knitted flat from the bottom up. Increase stitches on the right side of your work creates your isosceles triangle shape.

The two sides of your triangle have a pretty, airy eyelet border and the top is finished off by using the Stretchy Bind Off technique. This allows the top of your banner to lie flat without it being bound off too tightly.

Sample was knit with a total of 24 rows for a finished size of 8” wide x 9” long per triangle. Your knitted Pennant Banner can be created in larger or smaller sizes, depending on your materials and the number of rows completed. You can easily modify the triangle size by knitting it up until it is the length you desire. Feel free to use any appropriately sized yarn and needles for your creative project.

What season will you celebrate with your new Pennant Banner?
