My love for Ribbons/Bows. (Part I)

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

Who will not fall in love with cute ribbons/bows? 
Because I am too attached with bows, I'm so happy, I finally made my own. I am also sharing my happiness with you. It is very simple yet a beautiful project.




Materials:
Yarn
Hook
Sewing needle
Tapestry needle
Lace/Ribbon strap
Scissor
Glue
Hair clip



Abbreviation:
CH-Chain Stitch
SC-Single Crochet
DC-Double Crochet

PATTERN:

First Row:   CH 16(Don't make it too tight).
Skip 3 chains. In the same chain, make 1 DC. 2 CH and  2 DC.
Skip 3 chains. In the same chain, make 2 DC. 2 CH and 2 DC.
Skip 3 chains. In the same chain, make 2 DC. 2 CH and 2 DC.
Skip 3 chains. In the same chain, make 2 DC. 2 CH and 2 DC.



Second and the rest of the rows:  Rotate/turn your finished first row.
Make a slip stitch over the chain space.CH 3. 1 DC. 2 CH. 2 DC. 2 CH (All in same chain space)
Next chain space: 2 DC. 2 CH. 2 DC. 2 CH
Next chain space: 2 DC. 2 CH. 2 DC. 2 CH
Next chain space: 2 DC. 2 CH. 2 DC. 2 CH



I made 60 rows for my project. The length will depend on you. If you want bigger or smaller bow.
But at least 50 row is recommended.

To finish the row:
SC in the edge. CH 3. SC. CH 3. SC. CH 3. SC. CH 3. SC. CH 3. SC in the last DC.



Now we are ready to form the bow.

First: Wrap the both ends using the same yarn. It is shown in the picture below:



Then. Wrap the center to completely form the bow. Use the same yarn. And sew lace strap to finalize the bow.



Last: Glue the hair clip at the back of the bow.




Viola... Bow crochet.
