Continuing with my theme of bunting, today I thought I’d share a few ideas for bunting edging. Firstly a simple double crochet edging.
I started at the top right corner of the triangle and worked down each side working a double crochet(dc) into each stitch of the edge. When I got to the bottom stitch, I worked 2dc, chain 3, 2dc into that space. Then I worked back up the other side of the triangle with a double crochet into each stitch.
Another edging you could work is a shell edging
This is quite a pretty edging, and is made by making 5 trebles into the stitch you want the shell to be in, slip stitch half way between that shell stitch and the position you want the next shell to be in, then continue with a shell made of 5 trebles. The bottom point is made of 3 trebles, chain 3, then another 3 treble.
The final edging I have to show you for today is a pompom edging
I think it’s my favorite edging of all time. You can find edging tutorials for these pompoms over on the blog Once Upon A Pink Moon, (click here to go straight to the page) I’ve slightly adjusted the pattern so the pompoms come out straight from the bunting edge.
Hope these photos give you some ideas on how to edge your bunting.
Next time I’ll show you some different ways to attach the bunting to the string.
