What supplies will I need to crochet this bow?

To crochet this lace bow you will need less than 20 yards of fingering weight yarn. I used one skein of We Crochet Comfy Fingering weight, which you can get here.

You will also need a size E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook and clear-drying fabric glue. If you plan to use it as a hair bow, I also suggest getting an alligator clip. If you plan to use it as an applique, you’ll need a sewing needle and thread to match. You could also use it as a bow tie, with might need some additional materials to fasten it onto or around the collar of a shirt.

Any tutorials to help me crochet this bow?

You will need to know basic crochet stitches, like chains, single crochets, and double crochets in order to make this bow. Knowing how to use written patterns is also helpful. You can learn these skills with the video crochet tutorials found on my Learn to Crochet page.

This pattern uses the Pistachio Shell Stitch, a beautiful, lacy variation on the classic shell stitch. For help with this specific crochet lace pattern see my video here.

What can I do with this crochet bow?

As shown in the pictures, it makes a darling hair accessory! I could see this looking lovely with a special holiday outfit, or even with a more casual jeans and t-shirt. It would be lovely for Easter, Christmas, or New Year’s. It would be a beautiful wedding accessory for the bride or bridesmaids, or even as bowties for the groom or groomsmen!

You could use this free crochet bow pattern as an applique on jeans, a blanket, or a scarf. You could use it to embellish a journal, wooden letter, or other decorative item.

Because it is small, quick, and uses very little yarn, it will be great for using up scraps and for gifting to friends and family for holidays, birthdays, or any occasion!

Where can I get this free crochet bow pattern?

Well, this one is a little different than my usual. I was thrilled to release this pattern as a guest designer for Sunflower Cottage Crochet. So for now, the free version of this pattern is available on their site, rather than mine.

You also have the option to purchase the PDF version of the pattern in the usual places, Ravelry and Etsy.

I hope you love this free crochet bow pattern! When you finish yours, please share your project to Ravelry or, even better, share it in my Facebook group!

Happy crocheting!
