I decided I wanted to make some bright and colourful bunting for our garden. Rainbows and Stars seem to be a favourite of mine and the boys so that's what I went with.
Here is my recipe for the Rainbow Star Bunting (don't forget that I use UK terminology.
I used Drops Paris Yarn which comes in a choice of 45 colours and the details of the yarn are:
Content: 100% Cotton
Yarn: C (16 - 19 stitches) / 10 ply / aran / worsted
Weight/yardage: 1.8 oz (50 g) = approx 82 yds (75 m)
Recommended needle size: US 8 / 5 mm
Gauge: 4" x 4" / 10 x 10 cm = 17 sts x 22 rows
Machine wash hot 60°C / 140F. Dry Flat
I used the recommended 5mm hook and worked as follows:-
Working with your chosen Star colour, ch4, sl st to first ch to form a loop (alternatively use a magic loop)
Rnd 1. ch3 (counts as first tr), 19tr into the loop, sl st to top of ch3 to join 
Rnd 2. ch1, dc in st at base of ch, *sk next st, (3tr, ch3, 3tr) in next st, sk next st, dc into next st* repeat * to * all the way round, sl st to ch1 to join.
Fasten off and sew in ends.
I made 18 stars, 3 red, 3 orange, 3 yellow, 3 green, 3 blue and 3 purple. And I used a seventh colour to join my stars (pink).
ch25, *put your hook through the ch3 sp at any of the points of the star and complete a sl st, ch30* repeat until all of your stars are joined.
You will see that my bunting looks 'tight' in the photo below. As the yarn is cotton it will stretch a little, as a result your bunting will have a natural sag to it after a couple of days. Therefore, hang your bunting slightly tighter than you think you need to and this will allow for the natural stretch to give the nice sag/droop to your bunting.
Sit back and enjoy the splash of colour you have added with this quick make! It looks great hung indoors or outdoors so there's no limit on where you may choose to hang your bunting. I must add though - please ensure that it is out of reach of children.
