I have always wanted to knit a Garland or Bunting of some kind. I fished out my cotton and knit one for over the fire place. The knitted squares are actually a pattern. I adapted it from one of my favourite baby blanket patterns I got a long time ago. The cord is just two rows of crochet. I love how it looks over the fire place, but I think it may look too wintery for this time of year.
If you would like the pattern, just let me know and I will do a post for you.
