Pennant Garlands are everywhere and we still can’t get enough. This weekend, I tried one with yarn! It was really fun to make and pretty quick. Oh, and you can make this in bed, a total plus for crochet in general. I think these would be A-dorable on the mantle for Christmas strung from stocking to stocking.
Directions after the jump:
I used an I/9 hook but anything from G-K would work.
Unless otherwise noted, pick up both loops of each stitch
Keep gauge loose for ease of crochet and so that the piece will lay flat
Row 1: Ch 4, 3 DC in first Ch stitch (This should look like 4 DC in one loop – a tiny triangle)
Row 2: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 4 stitches (including the first stitch right at the bottom of your chain & the last stitch, which will be tighter. You can pick up just the top loop on the last DC)
Row 3: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 5 stitches
Row 4: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 6 stitches
Row 5: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 7 stitches
Row 6: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 8 stitches
Row 7: Ch 3, turn, 1 DC each in next 9 stitches (You can continue with more rows if you would prefer larger triangles)
Pull yarn through one last time to tie off and cut leaving a 1-2 inch tail
Crochet desired number of pennants (there are 7 here)
1. With garland color, Ch 25 (or more stitches for added length at end)
2. Pick up top row of a pennant (with the pennant tail facing right)
3. 1 SC in each (10) stitch across top of pennant (make sure your first stitch is directly under the tail knot)
4. Ch 5 (or more, if you want more space between pennants)
5. Repeat step 2-4 for each pennant
6. After attaching last pennant, Ch 25 (or more for added length.)
Weave hook through top row of pennant (as shown below) and pick up tail on hook. Pull tail through piece.
Weave hook down side towards bottom point, pick up bottom tail and pull throw piece.
