My Crocheted Kite Pattern

 I'm happy to post my little crochet kite pattern for you today.  
This is a quick and easy project that has many uses.  
Make a bunting of kites strung together for your window or a party or use them to decorate a package for that special someone.

If you have a major case of spring fevah like I do, these are a perfect way to bring a little happiness to your life until spring actually does arrive!

Okay, here goes!  If there's anything that doesn't make sense, PLEASE shoot me an email!

You'll need:  Crochet Hook. I used a size F.
Scrap yarn.  I used worsted weight to match the hook size.
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Smaller hook for the bows.  I used a 2.25 mm
Embroidery thread for the bows.

Row 1.  CH 2, 2 SC in 1st CH.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 2.  SK 1st CH, 1 SC in next 2 CH.  CH 1 Turn.
Row 3.  SK 1st CH.  2 SC in Next CH, 1 SC in next CH.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 4.  SK 1st CH.  2 SC in next CH, 1 SC in next 2 CH.  Ch 1 Turn.

Row 7.  SK 1st CH, 2 SC in next CH, 1 SC in next 5 CH.  Ch 1.  Turn.
Row 8.  The tricky row.  See below for detailed instructions if you're confused.  :)
SK 1st CH, SC in next 7 CH, SC in left side loop of chain just made.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 9.  SK 1st CH, SC in next 8 CH.  SC in left side loop of CH in previous row.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 10.  SK 1 CH.  SC in 9 CH.  CH 1.  Turn.

Row 13.  SK 2 CH.  SC in next 6 CH. CH 1.  Turn.
Row 14.  SK 2 CH.  SC in next 5 CH.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 15.  SK 2 CH.  SC in next 4 CH.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 16.  SK 2 CH.  SC in next 3 CH.  CH 1.  Turn.
Row 17.  SK 2 CH.  SC in next 2 CH.  CH 1 Turn.
Row 18.  SK 2 CH.  SC in 1 CH.  Fasten off.  Make sure to leave enough yarn to make a loop at the top for hanging.

The Tiny Bow Pattern.
CH 7.  In 3rd chain from hook, 3 DC.  1 SC in next chain.  SK 2 Ch.  3 DC in last chain.  Fasten off.  Tie ends in a knot.  Weave ends into the center of the bow with needle.  Wrap one end over the middle and tie knot with the other end.  Knot the bow to the tail of the kite.

Admire your little creation and smile!!!

Row 8.  The tricky row. This is the row that makes the side point on your kite.  
You'll do the same on the 9th row so you'll have even points on each side.

ENJOY!
