Patriotic Garland - Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: May 22

Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my Patriotic Garland free crochet pattern with you! This is a quick and easy crochet pattern that makes the perfect party décor for Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, or the 4th of July!

This patriotic garland crochet pattern is comprised of the triangle bunting base, base border, and star which is crocheted separately and stitched onto the base using a tapestry needle. The finished bunting triangles measure approximately 4 inches wide by 4 inches tall. You could easily make larger triangles by using larger yarn and a larger crochet hook. The bunting triangles are strung together using jute.

Add a SC Border: Continue up the left side with a border of SC, chaining one in each of the bottom corners, until you reach the beginning stitch of your border. Slip stitch, chain 1, tie off with a long enough tail to weave in your ends. Trim any excess yarn.

Crochet Star:

Round 1: In a magic circle, chain 1, SC 10, pull the magic circle tight, slip stitch into the first SC of the round

Round 2:

We will repeat the following steps 5 times to make the five points of the star:

  • Chain 5, SC in the 3rd chain from your hook, HDC, DC (this makes 1 point)

  • To join the point to the base, skip 1 SC on the base of the round and slip stitch into the next stitch

  • Repeat

After the last stitch, chain 1 and tie off pulling through that chain 1 to secure.

Weave the ends into the back where you can make sure that center of your magic circle is pulled tight and tie the two ends together to keep it secure. Leave a long enough tail to attach the star to the bunting triangle base.


Using the long tail on the stars and a tapestry needle, stitch the stars onto the bunting triangle bases.

Using your tapestry needle and jute, string your finished triangles into a garland by running the jute through two points on the back top of the triangles.

I hope you have enjoyed crocheting this Patriotic Garland with me!
