Holly Bunting

With just 90 days to go before hanging our Christmas Stockings for Santa to fill,
my thoughts have been turning to festive fun!
Holly Bunting has been my first project.
There are lots of ways to decorate this simple holly bunting -
use knitted holly berries, or try buttons, ribbons, bows, jingle bells, flowers ......

Row 1:       Knit

Row 2:       Knit 3 times into the stitch                               (3sts)

Repeat rows 2 – 9 as many times as you wish - to give you the length of bunting you require.

Fasten off.  
Tie a knot on the cast on and cast off tails to make a hanging loop.
