Here’s how to make the St. George’s Day bunting…

Make as many bunting flags as you require following the pattern below and making an equal number from each colour yarn.

Make a slip knot and place on LH needle.

Row 1: (RS) Increase by knitting into the front and back (kf&b) of slip knot. (2sts)

Row 2: Sl1, kf&b. (3sts)

Row 3: Sl1, kf&b, k1. (4sts)

Row 4: Sl1, kf&b, k2. (5sts)

Row 5: Sl1, kf&b, knit to end. (6sts) Repeat row 5 until 12sts on needle.

Knit 2 rows.

Rows 14–15: As row 5.

Rows 16–17: Sl1, knit to end.

Repeat last 4 rows until 33sts on needle.

Knit 3 rows.

Make buttonholes:

Row 37: K3 (cast off 3, k4) to end.

Row 38: K2 (inc in next st, yarn over, inc in next st, k3) repeat to end.

Knit 3 rows.

Cast off.

Lay out the bunting flags in a row. Stitch the top 1cm (?in) of the outside edges of the flags together to form a continuous length. Thread ribbon through the buttonholes, leaving approximately 30cm (12in) at each end for hanging.
