NOTES
1. Pennants are worked separately and buttoned together to form a banner.
2. Striped pennants consist of 2 rows per color stripe. Non-working yarn is carried loosely along side. Carried yarn strands are covered by working edging over strands.

Warning: Buttons and small pieces pose a potential choking hazard. Use care when hanging bunting. If hanging on a crib, buttons can be eliminated and pennants can be sewn directly together.
