Crochet Hairbow

This DIY is pretty easy and you can experiment with different sized bows, colours and more. Also it depends on the type of yarn you use as well so the results of your bow(s) will differ.

Materials needed:
– scissors
– yarn
– crochet hook
– glue (optional)
– needle & thread

Step 1) Crochet chain stitches to desired length

Step 2) Crochet rows of trebles( the amount of rows you do depends on the type of yarn and length of the chain stitches)

Trebles = yarn over, put the yarn through the stitch, yarn over and pull through, yarn over and pull through 1 loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops.

Step 3) After finishing the rows of trebles, do 1 chain stitch, pull on it a little for extra yarn(so when you then cut the yarn and tug a knot will form so your work won’t unravel) and cut any extra yarn at the start and the end of the rectangle.

Step 4)You can either:
-mend the knot inwards to where you choose will be the back of your bow
OR
-glue the knots inwards to where you choose will be the back of your bow
Step 5) For the finishing of the bow, either:
-crochet a piece for the center to form the bow
-Thread yarn through the center of the rectangle, tug it a bit to form the bow , double knot it and continue wrapping yarn around the center of the bow. Once it seems like enough form a knot or two.
Even though there’s another way to do the center hold for the bow this is what I chose to do.

Extra Ideas
-Make white bows and dye them in an ombre or just dip dye them
-Add studs to your bows
-Use tie dyed yarn (some may give an ombre effect
-Glue the bow to a plain head band
-Use a colour  for the center different to the colour of the bow
