DIY Valentine’s Day Bunting

DIY Valentine’s Day Bunting by LunarKnitsbyLori

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first tutorial for Hobium. I will be walking you through the steps to make your very own heart and tassel bunting, perfect for Valentine’s Day! 💓

The supplies you’ll need to complete this project are:

3 colors of Diva natural cotton yarn (this will be held double stranded through the pattern)

9mm crochet hook

7mm crochet hook (used for chain and weaving in ends)


Notebook (this is used as a tool to make your tassels)

Stitch key:

Ch- Chain

Sl St- Slip stitch

Dc- double crochet

Lets get started!  (Make 7)

(Holding yarn double stranded, pulling from inside and outside of skein, and using your 9mm crochet hook) Ch 3, join.

Round 2: Ch 3 (this will count as your first dc), place 11 more dc in the center of the ring. Join to top of beginning ch 3 with a slip stitch.

Round 3: Skip first 2 stitches. Place 8 dc in next stitch.

Place 1 dc in next 3 stitches.

Place 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc in next stitch.

Place 1 dc in next 3 stitches.

Place 8 dc in next stitch.

Sl st to starting point. Cut yarn and weave in ends. It is important to weave the ends on the center by pulling tightly so you get a nice dip in ends center of your two humps. This will give you the distinct heart shape.

Lets make some tassels! (make 7)

(Continue to hold your yarn double stranded by pulling from the inside and outside of your skein.)

Using your notebook, hold your yarn starting at the binding of your notebook, wrap your yarn around 5 times being sure to end on the same side of the notebook that you started on.

Next, cut 2 long strands of matching yarn. Using your crochet hook, stick it under your wrapped yarn on the side of your notebook with a gap. Pull one of the cut pieces of yarn under the yarn and tie a knot.

Gently pull the tassel off the notebook. Using the other strand of cut yarn, wrap it around the tassel about an inch from the top. I like to wrap my yarn 4 or 5 times. Secure with a knot. Trim tassels to desired length.

Time to attach all your pieces!

Attach your tassels to the ch 2 space that you made at the bottom of your hearts. I do this with a simple double knot. Trim the excess string.

Using the yarn color of your choice and your 7mm crochet hook, ch 15.

It is now time to attach your first heart. This is done by slip stitching to the top of your heart. You can do this in any of the stitches at the top of your heart.

Ch 5 and slip stitch to the top of the other side of the same heart. Ch 10 and attach your next heart. Repeat until all your hearts have been attached. Ch 15 to finish off.

And there you have it! 💓
