I love making these! Though, I've always done it where you crochet a separate rectangle to wrap around the middle...yours looks a whole lot easier, I'll start doing it that way! :) Thank you for the tutorial!
those are so cute♥ i don't crochet or knit, but my mom does. maybe she'd like this. thanks =)xoxo,Jessica @ Diary of a Beautiful Soul
this is so cute! i'll have to try one out. thanks for the tutorial :)xohaley
Trinka - I've done it that way too. I started to do it this way recently and, like you said, it's a lot simpler. ;D-Abby
Awww! I love it! it's so versatile! Great pattern!
Thank you! This is lovely!
glad you like it! :)
Yay! I made this yesterday and it came out lovely! Thanks so much for the tutorial!
Very cute:) I just made one for one of my nieces and it was easy and quick to make! I'm new to crochet and a *slow* crafter, so when I do something quickly it makes me happy. Thanks!
too cute! going on my ever growing list of projects :)
What kinda of yarn do u recommend for this? Any kind, or a specific weight? These are super cute! Thanks for the tutorial!
Hey Dawn! For this I believe I used a bamboo yarn that was leftover from my mom's scarf. But I've made bows with every type of yarn available (almost, hah) and they've all turned out great. I have noticed Red Heart Soft and Caron Simply Soft have been brands I tend to go to when I need to make a bow... I guess because they are soft but still hold the bow shape. Those are both 4-ply weight, which is a yarn I use often.But really, any yarn at all will work great. Just depends on what you're going for. Sport weights will work well, but it might tend to droop slightly... mainly just depends on how loose you crochet with it. :-)
Oh - the pink and gray bows are made with Caron Simply Soft, the green is with Stitch Nation Bamboo Ewe yarn. :-)
I have been making these as fast I can LOL .... so easy to make and put a pin at the end for hair or as pin on your jacket!
Thank you for such a sweet project! I can't wait to make some.
thank you!! such a nice project!!!xxx Alessandra
Saw this on pinterest. Made it tonight. Just wanted to say thanks!!
This looks so cute! Was thinking of this for decorations for a baby shower. Quick question though. What does "hdc" stand for?
FennellFanClub - hey there! So glad my tutorial was useful to you. "hdc" stands for "half double crochet." Instead of pulling through two, pull through two like you would on a double crochet, you pull through all three one time. Hope that made sense if you're not familiar with that stitch! Thanks!Hey, btw, I've moved over here.Abby
curious what crochet hook you used?
Lovejoy Inspirations - sure thing! I believe I used a 4.00mm hook, a G. :)
thank you! Funny thing is, I guessed a G! Assuming you crochet at least more than I do, does it really matter the size of the hook depending on what you make?
Nope, it really doesn't. I used a thinner yarn, so a smaller hook was best. If you use a thicker yarn, use a bigger hook. But especially for something like this, it really doesn't matter. :)
Ohmygosh. I'm making some winter hats and scarves and these will be heaps cuter than the round flowers i was going to do. Thanks so much for sharing! ♥
