Granny Heart Triangle Bunting – Free Pattern

Granny Heart Bunting by Loopsan

After 2013, 2014 is going to be another year of weddings. I’m always quite excited when someone is getting married, especially when they’re close to me :) So after making cake toppers last year, I offered a good friend to help her with the decoration. With the confidence of one wedding item under my “belt” I thought this one should be slightly easier to tackle. It might be possible be that I was slightly too optimistic on that front ;) So this time there won’t be cake toppers, I’m in charge of the bunting. Even though I’ve got still some time till the summer I thought that I should start early with the designs, then I’ve got enough time to make the proper big banner in the end. One of the banner elements is supposed to have a heart included in the triangle itself and after playing around with some yarn over the weekend I came up with my Granny Heart Triangle :). As Valentine’s day is approaching and I see more and more Valentine’s day pattern popping up I thought I’ll let this Granny Heart Triangle transform into a Valentine’s Heart Bunting for you to enjoy :)

  1. I adore granny squares and love this festive pattern! Hope you won’t mind me linking up at Tangled Happy tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing your bunting pattern!

  2. I saw your pattern over at Tangled Happy! This is an awesome pattern and excellent tutorial. BRAVO.
    I’m definitely trying this! I made a heart bunting tutorial a few weeks ago – but I will make a buddy for it and hang yours as well!

  3. Hi there wow what a lovely pattern!!! Just a question if I may: in row 2 every corner should have 2dc 2chains 2 dc, however should I follow the pattern it seems in the last corner only end up having 2dc thus ending with 2dc 2chains SS in beg 3 chains. Hope I make sense. It make the rest a little bit trickey because I am not sure if you included those 2dc. Really hope I make sense. Thank you

    • Thank you :) And yes you’re right! Thanks for spotting this! On the pic you can see that they’re 2 dc 2 ch and 2 dc in every corner. Just corrected the pattern :) San x
