I fell in love with the Bergere Baby Bunting and so it was the first thing I knitted for my soon-to-be grandchild. I loved knitting it and it was the catalyst to my return to knitting.
You can find the pattern in their ‘Creations 11/12’ booklet. Unusually the bobbles are knitted separately and added later, never done it that way before.
So, I thought a baby can’t have just one bunting and I set about looking for another.
My favourite of the ones I found was a Phildar pattern on Pinterest. I knitted lots of Phildar patterns when my children were small. I loved them and the quality of the yarn.
Snag number two; Phildar no longer supply any British stockists.
So now I was on a mission, first I showed a French speaking friend but of course knitting abbreviations are a language of their own. What would we knitters do without the internet. I stumbled on Chezplum and and a this helpful dictionary of french terms. The free download of the pattern has very straightforward diagrams.
Here’s Dougie, just a week old, in the bunting.
