I saw some cute little crocheted bows a few weeks ago and made a few. I live for quick projects that are functional. But then I thought about all the people who can't stand the thought of betraying their craft of choice.
So for all you knitters out there... here is something for you. Think of this as a birthday present for you-all but on my birthday.
Size 10 needles
Worsted weight yarn
Cast on 9 using a provisional cast on.
Row1: knit to end
row2: purl to end
Repeat these rows till piece is about 7 inches long.
Graft the stitches together using the Kitchener stitch leaving a long tail.
Pinch the piece together and wrap the tail around the middle.
Then I cut a very small piece of felt the same color as the bow and a bobby pin. I stuck the bobby pin onto the felt and then hot glued the felt down to bow. I made sure the tail end of the yarn was also hot glued down to secure it.
Now you have a great bow that you cab customize to your needs! All in a few minutes.
