My mum is a very clever lady, she pretty much taught me all the craft stuff I know (apart from the stuff that happens In The Garage which I learnt from my dad). She’s also a lady who likes to be busy All The Time so when I can I like to keep her occupied setting her tasks and problems to solve that help me out with projects I’m working on.

The latest task I set her was making some miniature knitted bunting that I plan to use when I shoot my next books. I cannot knit. Well I can, I can make scarves and blankets for dolls and things that are square and things that are rectangular. Anything that doesn’t involve more than casting on, knitting and casting off then I’m your gal but when it came to triangles they are slightly beyond me. One wheedling phone call later we have Mums Mini Bunting. Cute.

MUMS MINI BUNTING

Cast on 12 stiches
Knit 3 rows
Knit 2 together at either end of next row (=10 stitches)
Knit 3 rows
Knit 2 together at either end of next row (= 8 stitches)
Knit 3 rows
Knit 2 together at either end of next row (=6 stitches)
Knit 3 rows
Knit 2 together at either end of next row (= 4 stitches)
Knit 3 rows
Knit 2 together at either end of next row (= 2 stitches )
Finally Knit 2 together and cast off. Ta-dah!

Mums top tip? These are much easier to knit when you are not watching telly and trying to help Dad with the crossword at the same time as it’s easy to lose track of your rows.
