How to Make a Knitted Bow

Morning all! I hope you had a lovely weekend.

It was my last weekend of moving this weekend. Hooray! Just a few bits left to unpack this end and then we can relax for a bit.

I confess to having got itchy yarn fingers over the weekend. 3 days of no crafting doth not make for a happy Katie. So I whipped up this little beauty. Hope you like it.

You will need:

Yarn – I used some DK I had in my stash
A pair of 4mm knitting needles
A darning needle.


Cast on 7 stitches, and work in stocking stich (knit one row, purl one row) for 24 rows. Cast off loosley.
Thread one loose end onto a darning needle sew the shorts ends together to form a band, weave in the remaing yarn on the needle.
Using the 2nd loose end, thread onto a darning needle ( you don’t have to do this, but it makes securing the end easier) and wrap tighltly around the middle of the band. When you have wrapped enough, secure the end to the bow.

You can pop these on a hair clip, sew them to your finished garments or sew them onto a crochet chain to make alternative bunting.

The world is your mini bow oyster!
