Knitted snowflake bunting – free pattern*

Nordic style knitted Christmas bunting

This pattern was originally posted in December 2016 on my previous blog… I haven’t purposefully posted a Christmas pattern in January.

Whether you live somewhere that gets a healthy dose of the white stuff each winter or not, this knitted snowflake bunting guarantees you’ll get a bit of snow to admire (and for those of us in the UK, it comes without any travel chaos or panic shopping. Win). Plus the cool blues and Nordic style means it could easily be left up after Christmas as winter bunting too.

The gorgeous DMC Natura Just Cotton yarn really suits the cool, Nordic vibe. Plus of course the red mini pegs are the perfect finishing touch!
