Halloween bunting - free pattern

Pin It

I have a free pattern for you - after a long time. Of late I have been designing only amigurumi and I'm loving it. Before starting my next doll pattern I thought I would design something free for you and since it's the Halloween season what else can I think of other than a Halloween themed pattern? I chose to make a bunting since it is the best way to include as many Halloween characters as possible in one pattern. I made 8 triangles.


Halloween Bunting 

Materials:
Sport weight yarn in black, white, orange, yellow, green, lilac and grey
Crochet hook size 2.5 mm
Buttons 6 pairs - 2 black and 1 white
Embroidery threads

Size:
Each triangle measures approximately 3.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches high.

Abbreviations Used (US terms):
ch - chain
st/sts - stitch/stitches
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
sc2tog - single crochet 2 consecutive stitches worked together (sc decrease)

Note: Ch 1 at the beginning of a row will not be counted as a stitch.

Basic triangle pattern:
This is the basic pattern you will be using for all the triangles with variations in color.

Row 21: Ch 1, sc uniformly along the sides of the triangle working 3 sc at each corner. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc. Fasten off.

Triangle 1:
Follow the basic triangle pattern using orange. Using black thread embroider eyes and mouth.

Follow the basic triangle pattern working first 7 rows in yellow, next 7 rows in orange and the rest of the rows in white. While working sc along the sides of the triangle switch to orange for the orange part and yellow for the yellow part.


Triangle 3:
Follow the basic triangle pattern using white. 
Eyes (make 2): Using black ch 4, sc in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, 3 sc in last ch, sc in next ch on the other side, 2 sc in next ch. Join with a sl st to the 1st ch (8). Sew the eyes on the triangle as shown.


Triangle 4:
Follow the basic triangle pattern using black for rows 1 to 4 and green for rest of the rows. While working sc along the sides of the triangle change to black for the black part. Sew 2 black buttons for eyes and embroider mouth and scar


Triangle 5:
Follow the basic triangle pattern using black for rows 1 to 4 and lilac for rest of the rows, sc along the edges using lilac yarn for the lilac part and black for the black part. Embroider a triangle below the black part at the center as shown.  Sew 2 black buttons for eyes. Embroider mouth and fangs.


Triangle 6:

Triangle 7
Follow the basic triangle pattern using black. Sew 2 white buttons for eyes and embroider mouth and fangs using white thread.
Triangle 8
Follow the basic triangle pattern using black. Embroider webs as shown using white thread.


Joining the triangles
I used black yarn in heavy worsted weight and G/4.00 mm crochet hook. You can use any yarn and hook. Make chains long enough to accommodate all the triangles. Sew the triangles to the chains one after the other leaving about an inch between each triangle.



Hope you enjoy the pattern.
