Easy crochet bow pattern

 

Today we are going to make a really easy crochet bow. I believe the bow to be a symbol of femininity. If you take a look at little girl’s outfits they usually have bows or hearts printed on them. Girls also love to wear bows on their hair.

So, this is what today’s project is going to be about. A beautiful crochet bow with a little different structure than the ones you are used to. These are available in two sizes but I think it is very easy to customize them a bit and make them suit your needs.

You can add an elastic band and make them a hair tie or sew them on a headband.

Materials you are going to need:

Aran weight yarn (small amount)
US 7/4.50 mm
scissors
tapestry needle
stitch marker

The gauge is not critical for this project, which means you can try anything you like and you will end up with a different size bow. I would love to see some pics with bulky! You can see the measurements of mine below.

Small crochet bow: 3 inches (7,5 cm) wide and 1.25 inches (3 cm) tall
Large crochet bow: 3.5 inches (9 cm) wide and 1.50 inches (4 cm) tall

The pattern

As I said before, there are so many beautiful crochet bow patterns out there but this one has a slightly different structure. The middle part is worked in slip stitches so it won’t be so bulky in the middle when you wind the yarn around it. Clever isn’t it? You will see what I mean in a minute.

R1: ch 24, sl st to join in a circle (24)
The sl st of R1 is also the first st of R2, so put a stitch marker there to remember the beginning of each new round.

R2: sl st in next 3 st(s), sc 8, sl st 4, sc 8 (24)

All the stitches in the following rounds will be worked in back loops only.

Grab both ends of yarn and start winding them around the middle of your bow. Now is the time to add the elastic band if you choose to. No sewing required!
