Yesterday, I was trying to refine a pattern for a flower I made up several years ago. It wasn't working out for some reason, but the results inspired me to make this hair bow. Somehow my flower reminded me of hearts and I thought it would make a really neat hair bow. Hair accessories happen to be my most favorite accessories!
I have had this bow tested by quite a few people and so far so good, but if you happen to have any questions please let me know. I would love to see your final results and what you use your bows on as well! I think they would work great on almost anything! Headbands, clippies, dresses, gloves...I could go on forever! I hope you all love this sweet little bow as much as I do! Happy hooking!
Hook Size- I used 4MM or 5 MM. (Or whatever size you want.)
Yarn- Any worsted weight yarn. I used ILTY.
Notes- You’ll be working two loops. Any stitches not worked in or around the original loops will be worked into what I call the middle space. That is the part between the hearts. Don’t worry if that part isn’t quite perfect. You’ll be covering it with yarn later to make the middle of your bow. *If you do run into any trouble count backwards from your middle stitch in your heart. It should help you figure out where your slip stitches should be as well.
R1- Chain 9. Slip stitch into the 8th chain from the hook, slip stitch into the 1 remaining chain. Chain 8. Slip stitch into 8th chain from hook. Slip stitch into the middle of the two loops (the remaning chain that you slip stitched into after your first loop.)
R2-Slip Stitch into the first loop that you made. Crochet these into the loop- **4 SC, 2 HDC, DC, HDC, SL ST, HDC, DC, 2 HDC, 4 SC, SL ST.** Slip stitch into the middle of the two loops again. Slip stitch into your second loop. Repeat from ** to **. Slip stitch into the slip stitch from the previous round in the middle space.
R3-**Slip stitch into the first slip stitch you made in the previous row. 1 SC into the next 4 stitches (Into the 4 SC from previous row.), 2 HDC into the next 2stitches (Your 2 HDC from the previous row.), 2 DC into next stitch (DC from previous row.), 1 HDC in next, slip stitch into the loop space (the hole in the middle).
HDC, 2 DC in next stitch, 2 HDC in next 2 stitches, 1 SC in next 4 stitches, SL ST into slip stitch from previous round.** Slip stitch into middle space. Repeat from ** to ** on the other heart. Slip stitch into the middle space.
4- **1 slip stitch next 2 stitches, 1 SC into next 6 stitches, 2 HDC into next 3 stitches, 1 SC in next stitch, 1 slip stitch on each side of slip stitch from previous row (See picture for where to place these.)
1SC, 2 HDC in next 3 stitches, 1 SC in next 6 stitches** Slip stitch in next 2 stitches. Repeat from ** to **. Finish off, but leave a long tail to wrap around the center.
Weave in the starting piece of yarn on the back of the bow like this.
Fold your bow in half length wise and wrap your long tail around the center.
And there you have it! I’m sewing some of my bows onto hair ties and the others I will attach to clippies. You can even sew them onto headbands, hats, gloves, dresses…you name it!
