Heart Bunting Pattern

December 10th, 2014

It’s starting to look a lot like…. Alban Arthan in our house 😀

You may have read in my last blog post that I have been making festive (Christmas) decorations, I told you how I made my knitted chains and bunting but not how to make the knitted heart bunting, so after quite a bit of playing about and tweaking I have settled on the pattern.

Knitted Heart Bunting

This is great for the festive season as it can be made in festive colours and for me it represents the love at this time of year. It is a really quick knit and is a simple garter stitch pattern so still time to knit it up!

It can be made in any colour to decorate bedrooms, this is the sort of thing my daughter would like hanging in her room, and I also thought it would be good for party’s and gatherings…or just because! I might make some for after this festive season is over to go in the same place!

So here is my pattern for knitted heart bunting (or Download PDF)
