About 6.25″ wide and 2.75″ tall, Red Heart With Love is on the thicker side of worsted, subbing in other yarns will slightly alter the size of your finished bow.
4 rows x 8 sts in sc = 2″ x 2″
- small amounts of red, black, white, and gold worsted weight yarn
(Shown is Red Heart With Love in Holly Berry, Black, & White and Red Heart Super Saver in Gold)
- Size G (4mm) crochet hook or size appropriate to your yarn choice
- scissors, tapestry needle, tape measure
- method of choice to attach: bobby pins, head band, comb, metal clip, or rubber band
Instructions (US Terms):
With red leave a long beginning tail to sew later and chain 51:
(I have actually replaced my beginning chain and row 1 with a chainless foundation sc row. They are really nice and I highly recommend you learn this technique. Here is the link to the video I used to learn. The video is not my own, so you are being redirected directly to the creator’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAWl0WItqPg&t=5s
If you do not want to at this time, you will want to come back at the end of the bow and either loosely sl st or make a edge row of single crochet across the beginning chain to make it look nicely finished.)
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across. (50)
Row 2-3: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. (50)
Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across, at the final yarn over pull through of the last sc, pull through black and cut red. (50)
Row 5: ch 1 (does not count as a st), turn, hdc in same sc and in each remaining sc across, at the final yarn over pull through of the last hdc, pull through red and cut black. (50)
Row 6-7: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. (50)
Row 8: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, at the final st change to white using the same method as previous. (50)
Row 9-10: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, after row 10, cut yarn. (50)
Middle Cinch Piece:
With gold, chain 15:
(Again I have replaced by beg chain and row 1 with a chainless foundation sc row. If you do not want to do this, consider loosely slip stitching across your beginning chain once the rows are completed to give both edges a finished look)
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across. (14)
Row 2-3: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across, after row 3, cut yarn leaving a long tail to sew together. (14)
- Weave in all ends on the main bow except the long red beginning tail.
2. With the right side of row 10 of the main bow facing out, use the long beginning tail of red and sew both the short ends of the strip together.
3. With the seam from sewing the main bow into a tube in the center and back, pinch the center of the bow from long edge to long edge to create a bow shape. Wrap the gold middle cinch piece around the pinched middle section of the main bow and sew the short ends together behind the bow right along the same seam you closed the main bow with.
I ran the gold yarn tail in and out of the bow up the middle as well to secure it in cinched position even further.
4. Weave in any remaining ends.
5. I just used bobby pins to attach for wear. You could hot glue it a headband, metal clip, comb, or even sew a rubberband on the rear side for wear.
