Girly Girly Bunting

I made this thinking it would look so cute in a little girl's room. Making a few of these for a craft fair. Some of you asked me for a pattern when I blogged about it here. So here you go.

For the triangles
1 dc in first ch [2dc]
Ch2, Turn
dc in same st, 2 dc in next st
Ch 2 turn, 2 dc in the next st, 1 dc in next the 2 stitches, 2 dc in the last st.

Till row 5 you will increase like this by doing a 2dc in the stitches on the extreme left and extreme right and 1 dc each in the middle stitches. After that I increased only every alternate row. 
(Every other row - 1 dc in every stitch)

For the flowers

Ch4, sl st to first chain to form a ring.
Ch2(counts as first dc),12 more dc into ring     [13 dc]
(Ch1 , 3 tr, 1 sc) into one stitch, 1 sc into the next stitch
*sl st into next stitch, (ch1, 3 tr, 1 sc) in the stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch*
Continue *-* to finish the round  [6 petals]
Sl st to the first ch1.

I made 10 triangles and 10 flowers . Attach each flower to the triangles.
If you have any doubts or suggestions, please let me know. Would love to see the buntings you make. Have a great day!!

Granny Triangles - my way

Many of you asked me how to make the triangles for the bunting in my previous post. Some of you asked if there is a pattern for it. There might be a pattern for it in many places, as it is a very basic pattern. Same as in a granny square, but you work three sides instead of four.
Here is how I make them.

Ch4, sl st to first chain to form a ring

First round

Ch2(Counts as first dc. I always ch2 for dc instead of ch3 because I find it balances the height better.)
2 dc, ch2,3dc,ch2,3dc,ch2, join to top of first ch2

Second round

sl st in the next 2 dc (I sl st in the back of the chain)
sl st into ch2 space.
*3dc,ch2,3dc in the next space*
Repeat *-* once more, sl st to top of first ch2

Third round

sl st in the next 2 dc
sl st into ch2 space.
*3dc in next ch2 space
3dc,ch2,3dc in the next space*
Repeat *-* to finish the round and sl st to top of first ch2.

Repeat third round till the triangle is as big as you want.
Please feel free to tell me if there are any errors or confusions.

I have added small metal bells below each triangle. So now they look pretty and sound very good too!!

New Year

Wishing you all a very very happy new year!! I visited my hometown for the Christmas holidays. It was just the break I needed. This time we decided to take a different route. Took more time but it was much more beautiful.

After reaching back I have started working on some fun crochet.

I can write a pattern for any of these if you want. Made a few pouches too.

Before leaving, a recap of 2011.

My first pattern.

Hope you all have a great year ahead.
