A bunting for the living room !!!!

First, you have to leaf through a Japanese crochet book...


Second, you have to find the right patterns...




...so you can choose the right yarn (I'm not a big fan of variegated yarn, even if I use it, so I decided to use 2 colours for each pattern) and the perfect hook size (6mm) and eventually you can begin to crochet....


....and at the end you are so satisfied with your work...










....that you decide that you may have a new bunting in the living room, just above the television...


Some enlarged details??? :oD....sure....








....I think I will seat more often in front of the tv, from now on!!! ;oD
