It’s a rather rainy day here… perfect for a bit of knitting. I have forgotten to share with you some lovely bunting I made for Easter… well, spring in general.
Inspired by Lori’s lovely bunting I decided it was about time I made some for myself.
I found that this was a simple and easy project to carry around with me while John played outside. It tucked easily into my purse and well, was generally addictive so I think I’m going to have to knit another.
1 skein Plymouth Kudo (worsted weight yarn, approx. 198 yds)
US #7 needles (I used 2 dpns since they were short and easy to carry around)
Size H crochet hook
Cast on 20 stitches using the long-tail cast on method.
Rows 1 – 6: K
Row 7: K2, ssk, k to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2
Row 8 – 10: K
Repeat rows 7 – 10, seven times
Row 11: k2, k2tog, k2
Row 12: K
Row 13: k1, slip 1 st k2tog pass slip st over, k1
Row 14: k
Row 15: slip 1 st k2tog pass slip st over
cut the yarn and bring it through the last loop to bind off.
Weave in ends
To create the cord, using the US Size H crochet hook, chain 14, *chain across the top of a pendant, chain 6*, repeat from * until you have desired length, chain 16, turn and single crochet into each of the chains to the end. Pull yarn through last loop and weave in ends.
I didn’t block my bunting, but I suppose you could.
For my fireplace bunting which measures 70 inches I made 8 pendants.
