Joining the bunting

Join the bunting along row 31 of each segment.

Using cream/ white yarn:

CH 15, *SS across 32 stitches of row 31 of the first segment, CH 10, *Repeat between * and * until all segments are joined and finish with a CH 15.

FO.

Finishing

To finish I would recommend either blocking each segment to help it hold its shape or alternative you can iron each segment with ironing starch (check that your yarn choice is iron friendly).
