Knitted Star Bunting

Pretty sure you don’t want to see another crocheted amigurumi from me. This post is a refreshing change of pace.  I was very, very happy to have knitting needles back in my hands again!  

  
I whipped up a primitive/country style mini bunting for my cousin’s adoption fundraiser auction. It’s going to be hard to give this one up!  

The auction is in June, so I figured a patriotic-inspired bunting would appeal to a lot of people since Independence Day is right around the corner. 

I used fingering weight scraps and a size 1 circular. The first time I made this pattern, it was on dpns and the first two rounds were quite fiddly. This time, I did magic loop and I’ll be sticking with that method from now on.  It was MUCH faster and easier.
  
 I strung it up with some simple hardware store twine. It comes in a huge roll and works great for tying up cardboard. Turns out, it also adds just the right amount of primitive country-ness to the star bunting, too.
