This past weekend I whipped up some super simple hair bows for Evelyn, and I thought i'd share the pattern with y'all. I just LOVE these bows! Since they are knit up with cotton, they are durable and retain their shape well. The size is perfect for both toddlers and babies and it takes no time at all to knit these cuties up. Also, by using self-striping yarn, I was able to make bows of differing colors without having to buy multiply skeins of yarn.
- 1 skein of Sugar 'n Cream Stripes 100% cotton worsted yarn
- US #3 sized needles
- Sewing needle with eye to fit yarn
- 2 inch snap hair clip
- Hot glue gun
Gauge: 5 sts =1 inch garter stitch
Finished Size: 2 1/4 inches long, by 1 inch wide
CO 5 sts leaving a long tail
continue in garter stitch for 46 rows
BO leaving a long tail
fold each end so that they meet in the middle of your knitted strip
sew the ends together and DO NOT cut the yarn
Take the two tails left from CO & BO and wrap tightly and evenly around the center of the knitted strip, creating a bow shape.
Hot glue ends into place on the back (sewn side)
Hot glue snap clip to the back of bow, let set.
