A great craft activity with a Roman twist. To mark the anniversary of 1900 years of Hadrian's Wall Lynne Barber created the designs for these bunting flags with Roman shield and Roman numerals. The anniversary is now over but that's no reason not to have a go at these great scrap busting designs. Please use these flags as you see fit create your own bunting, use them to make blankets, throws or cushions or anything else!

You can follow the knitting patterns created by Clare who was inspired after seeing the crochet to transform our bunting flags into a knitted pattern. You can download the patterns on her website here.

You can follow the crochet patterns designed by Lynne Barber and make it your own by changing the colours or adding extra details. This would be a great stash busting task to tidy up any extra wool you have lying around. If you struggle to knit or crochet with 2 colours create a plain flag and then sew on a design by hand. Our bunting flags are approximately  10cm in width and 16cm in length if you would like to create you own design or adapt ours.
