Pattern: Bunting #1, The Boy Version


Today and next Friday I will release two new patterns! I was stalked, no, bugged by both Little Man and Little Lady with requests I should make them something. I've been really selfish when it comes to crochet and knitting projects!

Here's the first pattern, it is inspired by the wall in the room of Little Man. We did not know the gender when I was pregnant with him, so we chose a green wall.

I absolutely do not like gender-typical colours. Both kids have a multi colour wardrobe and that is so much fun. I thought it would be nice to have a little decoration hanging in their (they share a room at the moment) bed room that is boy and girl, or the other way around!

And, to be honest, I have been bitten by the baby bug since there is a little bub coming soon to our family... I am going to be an aunt for the first time!

Have fun picking your own colours and crocheting this bunting! Another version (with a different design) is coming next Friday!

Notes
Any yarn will do, just keep in mind you do not want the triangle/shield cup too much. Choose an appropriate hook for your yarn and a little blocking will make your motif flat. I used cotton for this bunting and made the motifs a little bit wet and pinned them into shape and let them dry.
