Knitted Bows

I saw some crocheted bows on a blog I love recently and although I dont yet know how to crochet (its on my to-make list) I decided to come up with some easy-to-make knitted bows. And as you can see I got a little carried away and made nine of them. They look really great and are a great way to use up small balls of yarn. I'm still not sure what to do with them though. I may stick on them on hair clips or turn them into necklaces... the possibilities are endless (ok not endless but there are quite a few possibilities) 




If your looking for a small, fun project I would really recommend trying out a few of these. 
Here is the pattern:
You will need
- Some yarn - pick a bright colour as I found these worked much better than the darker colours.
- Some knitting needles - It doesn't really matter what size needles you use as these bows can be any size. I used size 5 needles and a lot of different size wools but its really up to you.
- A yarn needle for sewing in the ends.
  1. Cast on 7 stitches, leaving a fairly long tale. 
  2. Knit until the piece measures 4 inches long.
  3. Sew in one of your tales of yarn and use the other longer tale to sew the two ends of the piece together, making a circular shape.
  4. Cut a long piece of yarn and wrap it around the middle of the circle. Once you feel it is sufficiently wrapped use your yarn needle to secure the middle. 
  5. Enjoy your lovely little bow.
I know this pattern doesn't really make sense but it's pretty simple and hopefully if you feel like making some it will make sense to you. If not, please comment with any questions and I will be happy to correct myself. 





I hope everyone is having a lovely lovely week.

Love Scarlett. 

P.S. Posy likes the bows too...
