Bunting patterns

As promised, here is both the knitting and the crochet pattern for bunting.

If you didn't read my previous blogpost; my nephew and his fiancée have asked for knitting or crochet people to make bunting instead of giving gifts for their marriage - the happy couple are decorating the reception venue with this hand-made, stash-busting, gift-alternative, and after the marriage will be sewing the bunting into blankets which go to charities they support.

I wrote about making some for their wedding and asked if anyone would like the pattern for their own use, and here they are.

The only thing I would ask is that you make a small donation to a charity of your own choice by way of 'paying it forward'.  (It makes the world go round.)
