A few days ago, I posted the Crochet Large Solid Colored Hair Bow. I wanted to get this post up two days ago, however, life got in my way a little.
The Witchy Hair Bow and Candy Corn Hair Bow (shown above) are the original inspiration for this post. I made them last year before I started my blog and (shame on me!) did not write the pattern down! It took a little working and reworking and measuring but I finally got it! Enjoy this large striped hair bow pattern!
- I9/5.5mm Hook
- Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
- Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Yellow and Pumpkin, and Caron One Pound in White.
Keep in mind that a heavier worsted weight yarn, such as the Super Saver, Bernat Super Value or Caron One Pound will work the best on this pattern because they are more sturdy. They aren't as soft or shiny as others but they will stand up the best and last longer.
If you choose to use a different yarn (as any will work!), you may have to adjust the pattern to get the same measurements and it may not be as loose as the following one is (I know because I tried this pattern with two different yarn types!)
This bow works up in less than half an hour.
This bow measures 3.25" tall and 5" wide (about 10" before sewing seam).
DC - Double Crochet
I worked this bow with three colors but you could easily work it with two colors or six different colors! Work it however you would like to - you are the artist!
To make my candy corn pattern, I started with yellow, switched to orange on the third row and switched to white on the fifth row.
|Change colors in the last yarn over |
of the last double crochet.
Beginning chain counts as a stitch.
CH 35. DC in 3rd CH from hook and in ea CH across.
Row 2-6: CH 2, turn. DC in 2nd DC and in ea DC across. (34 DC)
|This is what your finished rectangle will look like.|
1. Fold your piece in half.
2. Chain 1, then start slip stitching through both layers. The first stitch will go into that very last stitch that you just created. It should feel a little weird.
3. While going through both layers, make sure you match up the stitches so your finished piece won't be lopsided.
4. This is what your smaller rectangle will look like once the seam has been created.
Fasten off with a LONG tail.
|Now, tackling those pesky|
|Pinch the center of your bow in the shape that you want.|
|If your sides come out uneven once you are finished, just|
hold the center and tug at the sides of your bow to
even it out a little better.
Also take this opportunity to shape your bow if needed.
Your striped bow is finished! Attach a lined alligator clip to the back and Voila!
Please feel free to make and sell these large crochet bows, but please DO NOT claim this pattern as your own nor should you sell my pattern, and DO NOT re-publish my photos as your own. DO NOT copy and paste my pattern anywhere, link to it instead.
