Last week we had the Boy’s birthday party. It was his first “real” party with organized games and activities. I was so nervous. What if the kids hate the games? What if they hate the food (cupcakes, go figure)? What if they get bored, or my son decides he hates the whole thing? Oh the joys of parenthood. Luckily, it went quite well, all the kids had fun, and the stress and worry was for nothing. This week calls for a cute, sweet (and fast) little project. I have a fun and fancy pattern coming up next week, but I wanted to release this pattern first. These cute crochet bows will be embellishing next week’s creation. I loved how these crochet bows turned out so much that I wanted them to have their own post.
The good thing about these crochet bows is that they are shaped like a bow before the middle is wrapped. You don’t need to pinch and wrap, hoping it turns out okay (I am not the best bow-maker with fabric, paper, ribbon or much else). You get a perfect crochet bow every time!
These cute crochet bows work up so quick and the applications are near endless. A bow garland in a baby’s room would be so adorable, or you could embellish slippers and crochet boots, hats or hair bands and clips.

Take a length of yarn and wrap it around the middle of the crochet bow, starting in the middle of the yarn. Wrap both ends around the bow going in opposite directions. After wrapping 3-4 times, tie a small knot in the back of the bow and cut the ends.
