Bows, Bows, Bows (*pattern*)

I think bows are a cute add to any accessory. Lately I've been seeing a lot of girls with them on headbands, and decided to try to make my own. They're super easy, really quick and absolutely adorable to wear!


More hair accessory patterns:



The pattern for the headband and bow are super duper easy...



Headband (pink and black stripped)
foundation single crochet (fsc) 48,
ch 1 and turn (if u want to change colors, do it then ch1) if unsure how to do fsc, click here for youtube tutorial
1 dc in each fsc across (48)
(switch back to main color)
ch 1, sc across and finish off

For the bow
hook g

ch 25
rnd 1: ch 2, hdc across (start in 3rd ch from hook)
rnd 2-4: continue to ch 2, hdc across. sew the back of strip together to form a cuff

Center of bow
ch 8
hdc across (start in 3rd ch from hook)
put around the bow and sew in the back to form the bow



For barrettes, you can get clips from any craft store. Just glue them on and let them dry over night! U can make the bigger or smaller by increasing or decreasing the number of chains you do in the beginning of the pattern.














Hope U Enjoy! I'd love to see your finished work, so please feel free to email me pictures so I can feature your work on my blog!

what size needle did you use

Brittany said...

You should use a G size hook... I'll make sure i add that in there

Darlene said...

A G hook and worsted weight yarn? What type of glue did you use to attach them to the clips? Thank you, Darlene

Brittany said...

Yes ma'am!! I used tacky glue for the barrettes and put it under a heavy book, or a stack of magazines over night and it holds great

Thanks for the pattern, they look so cute!!!

Melissa said...

I have a question! So do you join the headband together or do you leave it in two separate strands to tie together? other than that LOVE the bow headbands!

So cute. Good ideas with the variations.

Brittany said...

thanks guys! @ Melissa, I did not join the ends together. I actually tied 2 pieces of ribbon on either side so the person wearing it can have it as tight or loose as they want

I love this idea!!My 22 yr old son loves bow ties. He likes the feeling of silk. I know there are some very nice soft cotton thread and yarns out there. Can they be used? If so, what hook and thread number would you suggest to use and will it change anything? Thank you.
