Today I bring you another reader request! One of our friendly group members asked if I could make a crochet plaid bow tie. I really meant to get to it sooner, but I am working some some really fun projects that are taking up most of my time (be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss anything). However, I found a bit of time this week and made a few. This crochet pattern turned out to be a fun and quick little project, and it looks so cute on The Boy. He has always been my super sweet crochet model, I am so blessed to have this kid!

Putting a long length of yarn on your darning needle, push it through the bow going in from the top, out and down the middle, and out the bottom.
Tug the end of the yarn so the bow is in the middle it. Tie a tight knot in the front of the bow, pinching it into a bow shape. Lay the band behind the bow and wrap the ends (in opposite directions) a few times around the middle, hiding the knot and attaching the band to the bow. Finish by tying the ends in the knot on the back of the bow.
