This pretty Christmas Bunting offers a complete colour workshop - a great opportunity to practice colour-work techniques such as fair isle/stranded knitting; intarsia; stripes and Swiss darning. Instructions for beaded decoration are also included.
The pattern is both charted and written and there are additional instructions for techniques such as cable cast on; right and left slanting M1 increase; knitting with beads; Swiss darning; stranded knitting and intarsia.
One ball of each of 3 colours yarn will make about 8-10 pennants.
if using a different weight of yarn from your stash, just remember to knit with one or two size smaller needles for a nice firm fabric.
I am a published designer and teacher. Through The Knitting Class by Pauline Gallagher, I design patterns for hand knitting which have been published by Knit magazine. I also teach knitting and hand sewing classes and workshops to both adults and children. I live in Dublin near the sea which is one of my strongest influences.
