Get Out The Bunting

Spring is in the air and it's time to get the bunting out!
I made this crochet bunting using the yarn pack I recently purchased from Wool Warehouse. However, you can use any DK yarn and it's a great stashbuster project.
Here's how I made it...

5mm hook
DK yarn in various colours
Stitches used: Slip Stitch, Single Crochet SC (UK DC)

Start: Chain 2 then SC twice into the second chain from the hook. Chain 1 and turn

Row 1: SC twice into each stitch. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 2 : SC twice into the first stitch from the hook, then one SC into each of the following stitches, Chain 1 and turn

Row 3 - 25 : repeat Row 2

Row 26: SC twice into the first stitch from the hook, then one SC into each of the following stitches. Fasten off.
Weave in all ends.
Edging: Simply SC around each flag and then finish off with a slip stitch in the first SC
(NB: I made 3 SC in each corner to avoid puckering)

I made 10 flags in total in 5 colours.
Creating the bunting: Chain 70 then slip stitch into and across the top of the first flag. Chain 10 then slip stitch into and across the second flag .... and so on. Finish off with another Chain 70.

Once complete, I gave each flag a blast of steam from the iron - careful to not let the iron actually touch the flag.
