B2S Banner

The B2S Banner

Download is for the graph only.  This project assumes you know how to crochet in the C2C (corner to corner) style.  If not, learn how via this great tutorial.

BACK 2 SCHOOL (B2S) is right around the corner for my kiddos, so I thought it would be fun to make something school themed to share.  Turns out so many of you loved this design that I couldn’t get it finished fast enough for all of you eager makers out there. But, alas – HERE IT FINALLY IS!

Tools Needed:

Hook Size:  E (3.5mm)

Yarns Used:  I used a variety of worsted weight cotton yarns that I had on hand (See below for exact colors).  Anything of that weight would be recommended to achieve the same look and size.

Lily Sugar & Cream:
Ecru (used for the background)
Rose Pink

Bernat Handicrafter DeLux Cotton:

Premier Home Cotton yarn:
Beige (used for the wood part of the pencil)

Dowel or stick, cut to the width of the finished piece
Tapestry Needle

Finished dimensions:  approximately 9″ x 20″
(Gauge is not important for this project.)


Finishing Details

To finish off my banner, I attached a dowel to the top using a little extra of the ecru yarn.  Leave a long enough tail to tie together and make a strap for hanging.

TIP:  Personalize your banner with some black yarn and surface stitching – you could add your favorite teacher’s name, a classroom number, or a school name, to create something truly unique to hang in any classroom, or to give as a gift for the awesome teachers and educators in your life.

  1. I would be very interested in to know how you added the name without it being included in the C2C graph. Can you share details? Did you just slip stitch the name?

    1. Hi Ashley – yes – If you read through the post, There are a couple ways you could add the name by either slip stitch or using a back stitch with black yarn. For my sample, I did use the back stitch method to “sew” on the name. I hope that helps! 🙂
