Crochet Watermelon Bunting
Well...it's been awhile to say the least. I apologize for the radio silence over the last few months. Sometimes a little quiet is necessary and I am always so thankful to come back to this space. In celebration of the blog starting up again and a new month ahead, I created this quick and fun crochet watermelon bunting pattern for you! Watermelon is truly an essential ingredient of summer. It wouldn't be the Fourth of July without a bowl full of watermelon slices to pass around during a fireworks show. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
Crochet Watermelon Bunting:
- H8 crochet hook
- Green, white, pink, and black worsted weight yarn
- Tapestry needle
Start with a Magic Ring. Visit this post for a tutorial on how to create a Magic Ring!
Row 1: Ch 3, 5 dc in the ring. 6dc.
Row 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in each dc space. 12 dc.
Row 3: Ch 3, *2 dc in the next dc space, dc in the next dc space, repeat from * stop when you reach the last pass through of the final stitch. 18 dc.
Row 4: Change to the white yarn. Pull the white yarn through the last stitch, ch 1, turn, *2 sc in the first space, sc in the next two spaces, repeat from * to the end of the row, stop when you reach the last pass through of the final stitch. 24 sc.
Row 5: Change to the green yarn. Pull the green yarn through the last stitch, ch 2, turn, * 2 hdc (half double crochet) in the first space, hdc in the next three spaces, repeat from * to the end of the row. 30 dc.
Bind off and weave in the ends.
Use the black yarn to sew seeds on the watermelon slices. Weave in the ends.
Cut your desired length of yarn and use a tapestry needle to weave it through the back side of the watermelon slices. Leave space in between the watermelons and hang up your new summer decoration!
I hope you enjoy this project! What are you working on this summer? If you give this pattern a try, use the #onesheepishgirl hashtag so I can see your progress!
