Bunting! Wonderful for all occasions. Choose the recipient's favourite colours and decorate appropriately. Christmas and Easter too!
Cast on 40 stitches on size 8 needles, knit in plain (or be more fancy if you wish) and cast off at each end of every third row. Join the tops across with chain crochet to make a length.
Decorations! for all occasions. Knit small squares, gather top and bottom and stuff. Decorate. Great for using up small scraps of wool.
I'll try to put pictures in my gallery.

Yes please baba.

I've managed the picture! Quite a triumph for a computer illiterate like me!

Is that the picture of the little snowmen - very cleverly decorated small squares! Not what my small squares would look like as I would be lucky to get a pot holder. very pretty though.

I can't visualise the squares from your description baba, sorry. And I can't find the picture either, but I do like the idea of your small bunting squares. Could you please tell this computer illiterate how to find the picture?

I should have mentioned sewing the squares uop one side to make a tube before gathering and stuffing. Sorry!
Picture of decorations is on my "profile" page.
