Carrot & Pea Bunting
Here’s my Carrot and Pea Bunting pattern. If you want to read about the inspiration of this, I wrote about it here
About 25g in orange and 25g in green in DK (I used Rico Design Essentials Merino)
3.5mm crochet hook and 3mm crochet hook
Small amount toy stuffing
The following are all in UK terminology
st(s) = stitch(es)
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
htr = half treble
tr = treble crochet
ss = slip stitch
How to make
Triangles (make 7)
Foundation row: Using 3.5mm hook, make a slip knot and chain 3, htr in 3rd chain from hook, turn.
Row 1: Chain 2 (counts as htr), htr in st at base of chain, htr in top of 2 ch from row below, turn.
Row 2: Chain 2, htr in st at base of chain, htr in each st, htr in top of 2 ch from row below, turn.
Work in this way with one more htr in each row until row 14 has been worked, thus: Chain 2, htr in base of chain, (htr in next st) 13 times, htr in top of 2 ch from row below
Peas (make 14)
Using 3mm hook make a slip knot and chain 2, 4dc in second chain from hook.
Now work in rounds.
First round: 2dc in each chain.
Second round: dc in each st.
Now stuff pea with tiny bit of stuffing.
Third round: dc in each st.
Final round: dc in every other st, fasten off.
Tape and edging
Make a slip knot and chain 256.
Put a marker in at 24th ch from hook, then at every 16th st till 24 ch from end.
Starting at 9th st from hook, ss in each st up to first marker.
Place triangle behind tape and working through the tape and triangle matching stitch for stitch (ss in next st, chain 4, ss in next st) 8 times – you should have reached the next marker.
Work ss in each st to next marker, work across the next triangle as for previous one.
Work in this way till last triangle attached.
Now ss across 15sts, and ss last ch to the 16th st to create loop at end of tape. Finish off.
Position peas a couple of stitches from each side of each triangle and sew in place.
