This is the last of these posts, I swear!
(Well at least until Wanderlust Whistler this summer).
Okay, by this point you all know I attended Wanderlust in O'ahu at the end of February. While I was there I camped on the beach, and decorated my site with some crochet. I've already shared the Half Lotus Bunting in the foreground, and the maple leafs in the midground. So now I'll take a minute to show off the Doily Bunting in the back ground.
The pattern is the Crocheted Doily Bunting by A la Sascha (ravelry link) and is available for free on her blog "Let's Yarnify". In her version (shown above) she does a short garland in blue, white, yellow and grey, but I knew I wanted mine to be long enough to string around my entire camp site.
Since of course this project would be going outside, I grabbed some colours in acrylic Bernat Satin, a 5mm hook, and got too it. I made most of the pennants on a quick trip to Thunderbay in January, small crochet pieces like these are great for working on airplanes. And the pattern is straight forward enough that once you've made one or two you can work it from memory.
When I got back to Calgary, I spent an afternoon tucking in ends and crocheted the whole thing together on a chain. I got three flags from each skein of yarn, and worked them in 6 different colours.
They looked great hung around my campsite, and held up despite all the wind and rain we had that week.
Now they run the full length of my apartment above my book shelves, and I can't wait to take them camping again this summer!
