Round 2: ch 1, sc in each ch around, sl st in beginning ch-1: 24 sc
Rounds 3-5: ch 3, dc into first st, fpdc into next st, (dc into next 2 sts, fpdc in next st) around until 1 st remains, dc into last st, sl st in top of beginning ch-3: 24 sts
Finish off.

Middle Piece:
Row 1: ch 10, sc into second ch from hook and in each ch across: 9 sc
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 9 sc

Wrap the middle piece around the main body, preferably between two ridges. Sew the ends of the middle piece together and weave in ends.

Sew or glue the bow to a hair clip or hair elastic. Alternatively, you can slip certain styles of hair clip through the back of the middle piece without gluing or sewing and have an interchangeable accessory.

    This would be so cute on my 1-year old daughter…if she would let me put anything in her hair ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. Dani says:

    “Round 2-5” — So do I repeat the instructions after this until I reach the 5th step?
    Or do I go back to Round 2 & then 2-5 over & over again until finished?
    Please clarify this. c: I really want to finish this bow ~

  5. Candace says:

    That’s a typo. It should say rounds 3-5, so repeat those instructions until you have 5 rounds done.

    I made one of these to put in my hair and it turned out much bigger than I expected (I should learn to read the “finished size” before I start something…). I didn’t really know what to do until I remembered somebody crochets with embroidery floss.

    It worked perfectly with my one steel hook (size 6). I left off the last row of the bow because I didn’t have enough floss (or I didn’t think I had enough). The finished object turned out about an inch and a half wide, which is almost exactly what I was looking for. I used almost an entire tiny skein of embroidery thread, too!

    Thanks for the pattern. I’m going to use up my far-too-big bag of embroidery thread on these!
