Who else loves a bit of Mini Festive Bunting at Christmas? I wanted to create a little festive cheer for these shelves in my daughters room and Mini Bunting popped right into my head. So I headed to my yarn stash, picked out a few colours and got to work! It’s super quick and easy to make but looks really effective. What do you think? If you want to give it a go yourself, I have written the instruction below for you and I also have a left and right handed tutorial for this who prefer to follow along at the end of the post.
Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.
What you will need

Gauge isn’t important with this project. Just keep your hook size and tension consistent.
Blocking is recommended in order for your bunting to hang neatly.
