Once you realize how easy this bow is to make, you’re going to make one for every single project you can dream up. Crochet a small rectangle, wrap the center and — boom! — you’ve got an adorable bow to top off your holiday gift wrap. Genius.
What You Need
Crocheting the RectangleStart by chaining 16.
Row 1: Sc in second st from hook and each st across (15 sc).
Rows 2 – 7: Ch 1 to turn, sc in each st across (15 sc).
Finish off and weave in ends. Now you have a basic rectangle (how easy was that?).
Forming the Bow
Cut a length of yarn to tie the bow in the center — 6″ is a good length for this particular bow, but you can definitely make it longer or shorter for a thicker or thinner wrap.
Wrap the yarn around the center of your rectangle and secure tightly with a knot. And just like magic, a bow is born.
Wrap both ends of yarn around the center of your bow until you’re almost out of yarn. Tie another knot (this should be on the back of your bow) to finish it off.
Weave in any remaining yarn ends. Now take a bow! (See what we did there?)
Make some fun variations on your bow with these easy adjustments.
