Crochet Baby Bunting & Pattern

Hi all, how are we??

I felt the need to crow-bar even more crochet into my baby daughters box room and so I made some more bunting. Can a child have enough bunting??  Noooo, no indeed no :-)

Thankfully her room does not resemble a used-car sales forecourt. Instead it's pretty and girlie and babyish and I think I just about got away with the extra crochet addition, lol.


I used the same yarn as I'd made this doily with, the bunting is what I'd originally bought the yarn for though.

My original source of inspiration was from ByHaafner blog (thank you Haafner) but although the design is similar, the pattern is different. (by the way I didn't win her giveaway, boo hoo)


So I thought I would write up my pattern for anyone who would like it, hopefully you will enjoy making the bunting and that the pattern is easy to follow and makes sense!!
