Pattern: Miniature Bunting

Thanksgiving weekend was a blast (I hope it was for you as well!). But now it's back to work and back to working on Christmas-y knits. I've finished off my Christmas list knitting, but now it's on to wrapping! I've vowed that next year, I will be much more creative with my Christmas packaging, but for this year, I'm only worrying about Syd's birthday extravaganza packaging.
So I knit up this adorable miniature b-day bunting to adorn the outside of her package (packaging post coming soon).
NOTE: Astrid over at Twisted Lamb was kind enough to convert this pattern into crochet!
