A Bunting All Your Own

While working on a sign for a craft fair, I decided to take pictures of the process.

As a left-handed crocheter, I've found that it is hard to come across Left-Handed tutorials that are made by actual Lefties. Most photos and videos are just mirrored/flipped.

Though I'm thankful for these photos and videos, I decided that the best way to change this for fellow lefties, is to start doing it myself.

To any right-handed people that may be interested in learning crochet: The world is your oyster. Google away!

For the rest of us, here's a rough start to my first tutorial.

**US Terms**

CH = Chain.
SC = Single Crochet.
DEC = Decrease.
SS = Slip Stitch
