This pattern can be tweaked in many ways! Just adding another round can give the bow a different look. Like this…

I use this bow to make hair clips. To do this, first glue ribbon onto alligator clip, then glue onto the back of the bow using fabric glue.

You can also clip the bow onto a hat

This is a fun and easy pattern to try. It’s a great way to use up some of your yarn stash. You can also try other types of yarn if you’d like but they may be a little more floppy.

Don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions

 

Have a great Monday everyone!

I made a smaller version of your bows to add to some baby beanies I just made! I think it adds the perfect finishing touch. Of course mine aren't as good as yours because they were my first try and I made them at 1 in the morning, but I still love them :). Thanks for sharing!

I posted pictures to my blog: www.thisyellowbrickroad.com

Hi, I just made a mini-version of this for my 10 month old. I chained 8 then followed the rest of the directions. Thank you so much for this pattern!

Here's the link to Pinterest.

Love this pattern! Most bows are either too large or too tiny! This one is perfect!
