I had a hard time figuring out what I would put above the crib on the striped wall. I felt like it needed something, but I didn’t want it to be anything heavy or large.  I came across a pattern for a knit bunting and it was perfect! The pattern I used was basically the pattern from this post on Nallies House. (here)

I ended up using random yarn that I had around (well mostly, until I had to re-order some so that I had enough to complete the project) so the varieties aren’t exactly the same.  The darker teal is Knit Picks Gloss in Kenai, the lighter teal is Knit Picks CotLin in Surf, the darker purple is Knit Picks Comft Fingering in Lilac, the lighter purple is Knit Picks Comfy Sport in Lilac Mist and the grey is Knit Picks Comfy Sport in Whisker. (I <3 Knit Picks yarn.  I use it for pretty much any baby project that I am making.)bunting1

The pattern was fairly simple.  Just the easy, but needed some attention type of knitting project that I had been looking for. I originally thought I would just do three colors (purple, teal, and grey, but I decided to give it a bit more variety and add a lighter purple and lighter teal as well. To fit the size I wanted, I ended up making three triangles of each color.

The string that connects them in the original pattern is crocheted, which I wasn’t sure that I would do since I don’t really know how to crochet, but I ended up teaching myself just that one stitch and it worked great for the string.  I used grey and teal yarn for that, since it will be hanging over dark purple stripes I didn’t want to go too heavy on the purple.

I’m really happy with how it turned out!
