I love how popular bows are becoming again. This crochet pattern I use for Hair Clips for my daughter, but it could easily be made into something for yourself too. I wore one on a headband once, but I felt a little silly. I am just not trendy enough for it and didn't think I could I pull it off. I'm sure I looked just fine, but I was self-conscious about it the whole time. Maybe I will try again later when I am in more of a trendy mood :)
This pattern is put together just like the Little Guy Bow Tie so go to that post for specific instructions on how to put it together.
I also made an improvement to the Little Guy Bow Tie so be sure to check that out to. I added velcro to the elastic to make it easier to get on and off without having to pull it over their heads.
Bow Hair Clip Crochet Pattern
by Ris C
Worsted Weight Yarn
Size H Crochet Hook
Alligator clip or barrette
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Round 1: ch 6, hdc across (start in 2nd ch from hook): 5 hdc
Round 2-18: ch 1*, turn hdc across: 5 hdc
Sew round 1 to round 18 to form a cuff and then pinch center, sew through, wrap yarn around and knot to keep pinch in place.
Round 1: ch 4, hdc across (start in 2nd ch from hook): 3 hdc
Round 2-6: ch 1*, turn, hdc across: 3hdc
Wrap around center of bow and sew in back to form the center.
Glue ribbon onto alligator clip (optional) and then glue clip (or barrette) to back of bow.
*Technically you are supposed to chain 2 for a hdc, but for me, 1 chain seems to look better. Just do whatever works best for you. It all depends on how tight or loose your stitches are.
I have several colors of these bows listed in my shop if you would rather just buy them then make them :)
