Crochet 4th of July Garland or Bunting Pattern Tutorial

crochet pattern for 4th of july garland or bunting

I want to share with you a crochet pattern that we released last year at this time that had rave reviews from our testers.  The 4th of July Bunting.  When I created this pattern, I had visions of porches with railings that have those big swags of red, white, and blue buntings on them.  It made such a beautiful decoration to every house I saw it on.  I wanted to design one that was unique yet also included that pretty swag.  

I also wanted to include the pennants more common to buntings and some hanging stars to break up the pattern a bit.   Loving how it turned out, I ended up making 2!  This year, I have moved to a new, big, fabulous home and have a front porch, yet it’s missing that coveted railing.  

My thought was to hang it along the roof edge, instead.  Perhaps I will take some photos and post it in our Facebook Group

This garland works up quick and is easy to do. Plus it requires very little yarn to make!

One of our testers loved it

So much so, that she made another one as it is, another one with just pennants, and a final one with just the swags! See how easily customize-able this crochet pattern is?

For this crochet pattern, we used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in white, cherry red, and royal blue. About half of a skein of each color (maybe a little more of the white).

Update to this blog post: We have bundled the 4th of July Bunting and the X’s Can and Glass Bottle Cozy patterns together on Ravelry!  This makes it easy to get both patterns super quick.

I recommend blocking each of your pieces so that they are the correct shapes and therefore aren’t curling on you.

You can make as many or as few of each part of the bunting as you wish, to customize the length. Pattern is written for a fairly long bunting.
