Hot Air Balloons
What a simple way to transform your little one’s bedroom!
Simply hang a beautiful hot air balloon from their ceiling and let their dreams float away into the sky.
The ButterflyLove pdf Hot Air Balloons knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions and handy hints along the way.
You can choose between making a far away hot air balloon or a closer balloon - both with cute button baskets. Why not knit a couple in each style and cluster them in groups for an amazing dramatic effect?!
This pattern only involves knitting flat and is suitable for an intermediate knitter or beginner wishing to expand their skill set. Striped balloons are a great way to use up those odd ball ends you have lying around the place!
You can also contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.
Pleas make sure that you knit to the required tension - if you don’t, you risk not achieving that classic hot air balloon shape.
What you will need:
2 knitting needles (US2/2.75mm or size required to match tension advice)
150 yarn for the balloon
3-4 buttons for the basket
12 inches of narrow ribbon
1 tapestry needle for finishing
Casting on and off
