This week I’ve playing about with and photographing crochet bunting ready for a class I’m teaching on Friday, and as I’m very excited about it, I thought I’d share a series of tutorials on just how I made it. Today is treble crochet bunting. I use UK notation throughout, so if you’re based in the US then all stitches will be your double crochet.
First of all this is what we’re (hopefully) going to end up with, a beautiful triangle, ready for edging and decorating.
I used DMC natura which is a 4ply cotton and a 3mm hook, but you could choose whichever yarn and hook you feel comfortable using. Right, here goes:
Work 2 trebles into the stitch nearest the knot
Turn your work, and then Treble into the stitch at the bottom of the chain 3, like so,
Treble into the next stitch, and then work 2 trebles into the top of the chain 3 you worked in the previous row.
You should have a row with 5 stitches now, including the first chain 3 that you started the row with.
For the next row (and every following row) you need to turn your work, chain 3, treble into the stitch at the bottom of the chain.
Work a treble into the top of each treble from the previous row, and like before, work 2 trebles into the last stitch of the row (the chain 3 of the previous row)
Continue in the same way, increasing at the beginning and end of each row until your bunting triangle is the size you want, then cast off. I stopped when I had 29 stitches.
That’s all there is to it, hopefully my tutorial will be easy enough to follow. Next time I’ll show you how to make Granny-style bunting, like this one:
