Crochet Pattern: Bow Tie Quilt BlockBy Emilee Gettle – 3 Comments
|I really love quilting. Mixing and matching all my favorite fabrics together to make something beautiful is so rewarding. So, the thought occurred to me, why not use my favorite quilt patterns for crochet patterns? This week I made a bow tie quilt block pattern for you to enjoy. You could make this block into something special for a baby with all the beautiful baby yarn available. You don’t have to break the budget either; it’s a great way to use up scrap yarn. Make several blocks with different colored bowties to create an afghan.|

Use a yarn needle to whip stitch a green square to a white square. Then, whip stitch the next pair together making sure that the squares are opposite each other so the green squares create the center bow. Now whip stitch the two halves of the square together to form the block. Place the small green square in the center of the block, like a diamond, and whip stitch it in place. Weave in all the loose ends to finish off.
