I've been meaning to share this pattern on Craftster for a few weeks now, but my granny square a day project is keeping me super busy!  These bows are perfect to make from scraps of just a few yards of yarn.  They are so cute when appliqued to a headband or anything else!

Materials:  Worsted weight yarn & Size H crochet hook

Stitches Used:  Slip stitch (sl st), Chain stitch (ch), Treble crochet (tr) (American terms)

Approximate Size:  2.5 X 1.5


Make a magic ring.

Ch 5, 3 tr in ring, ch 5, sl st in ring, ch 5, 3tr in ring, ch5, sl st in ring.

Cut yarn leaving a tail at least a few inches long.  Sew end through the first ch stitch at the very beginning and finish off.

You create the center of the bow by wrapping the two ends under and then back over the bow a few times until you are satisfied.  You may prefer to create a chain of stitches to wrap around the bow instead.  Finish off and weave in ends.  I like to leave the ends in case I need them to sew the bow onto something else.  If you do not sew it to something else, you may want to use a stiffener. 

The photo above shows the different shapes you can create by varying the number of tr stitches.  The bow at the top has 5 tr, and each subsequent bow has one less tr stitch.

These are super duper cute! I have a lady at work that is a beginner and she wants to crochet a little newborn headband, and I think this might be the perfect embellishment for it Smiley

Yay!  If she has any trouble with the pattern, I have a pdf for download on my blog that has step by step photos of the process.
