This is my first time designing a Christmas decor item!
I am so happy to present you with a delightful and free crochet bunting pattern, specifically designed to embrace the essence of Christmas.
Picture your cozy living room, adorned with a string of whimsical crocheted motifs, reflecting the traditional red, green, and white hues.
As you gather with loved ones, exchanging laughter and creating memories, this festive bunting will undoubtedly add a touch of warmth and cheer to your holiday décor.

It’s a great pattern because:
It only takes 3 rows for each rectangle
I used bulky yarn- but you can choose any weight yarn- just ad more rows
Of course you can chose to make this in any color that compliments your style

Crochet Bunting Pattern – How to work the granny rectangle
For one rectangle, Please decide if and when to change colors.
I made two rectangles starting with Green and changing to Cherry, Two rectangles starting with Cherry and changing to Green, One all Green and one all Cherry
Row 1: Dc2 in 4th Ch from hook( forms 1st GRst), Ch1, Skip 2 Ch, GRst in next, skip 2 ch, Grst in next, skip 2 Ch, continue across to end, Dc3 in last st, Ch2, Dc3 in same st, Ch2, Dc3 again in same st, (this forms the rectangle corner), Ch1, now we continue on the same row on the opposite side, GRst in next GRst from the prev row on the opposite side, GRst in next GRst, continue to next corner, skip 2, Dc3 in last Ch (1st Dc3), Ch2, Dc3 in the same spot, Ch2, and Slst to 1st Ch3 from the beginning. (2 corners + 2 X 2 Dc3 clusters)
Now you should have a closed rectangle.
Here I changed colors, so fasten up the yarn and cut.
Round 2: Introduce new color in a corner Ch3 (counts as 1st st), Dc2 + Ch2 + Dc3 in same Ch2 corner, Ch1, Grst in next Ch1 space, GRst in next and continue until reach next corner, Dc3+Ch2+Dc3 in next Ch2 space, Ch1, Dc3+Ch2+Dc3 in next Ch2 space, Ch1, GRst in next Ch1 space and across, to next and corner, repeat until you finish the round, finish Slst to 1st Ch1 from the beginning.
( 4 corners + 3 X 2 Dc3 clusters)
If you wish to make a larger piece continue repeating rounds
Cut yarn and weave in ends, I suggest to hand-wash in room temperature water with fabric soap the item and block it to straighten and have a perfect rectangle.
