Knitted Bow


Hey guys!

So currently, my signature thing has been wearing these knitted bows! I saw Camilla on The X Factor from 5th Harmony rockin' bows every week and I realized how cute they were! However I'm kinda cheap (and broke) and decided to find a way to make them for a lot less money.

I'm not that advanced at knitting so this is a SUPER simple project that any beginner knitter can do. Just as long as you know how to cast on, do the beginner's knitting pattern and then end it, you're skilled enough to make this!

Here are the supplies you'll need:

  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • Scissors

Step 1: Cast on 15 stitches (or less if you want a smaller bow) with the yarn of your choice.

Step 2: Keep knitting until you've made a nice rectangle, and then close off the ends. You can test out how long you want it to be by pinching it in the center and seeing if you like the way your bow will look.

Step 3: Cinch. Start by pinching a small part at the top.

Step 4: Continue cinching the yarn down the rest of the bow. Pinch and hold.

Step 5: Tie a knot. Make sure the knot is in the back of the bow and leave a 3-5 inch strand of string hanging off one end and a long piece (the rest of the roll of yarn) hanging off the other end.

Step 6: Begin to wrap the rest of the yarn around the pinched/cinched part of the bow until you like the way it looks!

Step 7: Tie a knot at the end to finish it off, and then cut off the extra yarn.

And there you have it! You now have your very own knitted bow.

Happy crafting!
