I love bunting, it brightens any room and adds a spot of fun to any gathering.
Making bunting is a brilliant way to use up those odd bits and bobs of yarn that we all have hanging around in our secret stashes or the perfect excuse to rush out and buy more (not that I ever need an excuse 😉 ).
It makes a brilliant gift for a new babies nursery, child’s room or whip some up in red and green for a fabulous Christmas pressie.
Quick and easy to make, with endless variations in colour and style. Here’s a quick free tutorial on how to make bunting.
Mini Crochet Bunting.

UK 5mm Crochet hook
Double knit yarn. Stylecraft is usually a good choice.
DC – UK double crochet, US single crochet

Double crochet (dc) in each stitch to the end and turn your work.
