Little things are my favorite. I mean physically little — like miniature. The smaller the better! Kittens? Cuter than cats! Baby shoes? Cuter than adult shoes! Those itty bitty grapes? So cute! These teeny crochet bows are no exception — they’re so much cuter than regular bows! As an added bonus, they’re quick to whip up and can be used for just about anything. They’d look so adorable on a teeny Christmas present, in a young girl’s hair, or as a refrigerator magnet. For our wedding, I attached a couple bows to wooden skewers for photobooth props.
So cute, right?! Anyway, let’s get started!
Begin by chaining 11.
Row 1: Skip the first chain (ch) and single crochet (sc) into the second ch from the hook. Sc across. (10 stitches)
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. Sc across. (10 stitches) Repeat Row 2 six more times. There should be a total of 8 rows.
Cut a very long tail (mine was about 24 inches, but you don’t have to be precise).
Using your tapestry needle, weave the tail to the center of the crocheted rectangle.
Fold your bow into its desired shape.
Wrap the long tail around the center of your bow. It doesn’t have to be super tight (it might distort your bow), but it should be secure. Tie off at the back.
Weave the starting tail (the one attached to the foundation chain) into the bow and trim the ends.
That’s it! Make as many as you want!
If you want to use yours for photobooth props like I did, slide a bamboo skewer through the back of the wrapped part. It felt pretty secure, but I added a bit of hot glue just in case.
What will you be doing with your teeny crochet bows?
