Styling a Bow!

The other day during a crochet lesson we featured a pattern on how to make a crocheted bow. Everyone loved it, cause it was a fun and easy project and c'mmon who doesn't adore bows?  Panagiota and I also brainstormed on fun ways to style this project and other bows that happen to be in our possession! There are infinite ways one can do it, and so we decided to show you how to style a bow our way!

 first of all you can style it on your hair!

let us show you some ways:

 you can also play with different sizes of bows and different hairstyles:  

or just put a safety pin and style it everywhere!!! 

Bow craziness...Do you like bows? Do you want to make a simple crocheted bow? It's easy!! So it's, pattern time! For the small red crocheted bow above, we used the idea of this free pattern, (thank you lovely lady of Creative Yarn!), but we changed it a little. So the pattern is this: 

Bow: Ch19, sc in second ch from hook, and in each ch across, turn.
         Row 1: ch1, sc in next st and in each across, turn.
         Rows 2-9: repeat row1.
         Work a sc across the edge of the bow.
        Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Bow center: Ch9, sc in second ch from hook, and in each ch across.

Finishing: Sew bow center around bow, gathering the middle of the bow and 
               joining edges of bow center.
               Weave in ends.

We hope you enjoyed this little post filled with bows, and we would love to see some of your creations and style ideas. How do you style your hair bows? You can show us on our facebook page.

bows all around!!! 

big kiss from us!
