I love bows/bow ties and I have long hair (admittedly I even am somewhat vain about my hair) – so what could be better than make bow-y things for my hair?!

This for example is a really cool pattern for a real bow tie (Bowtie by Erin Ruth) that you can use as Alice band but you have to bind it yourself – a challenge for the days you’ve not rolled out of bed five minutes before you have to leave the house.

I tried to come up with a pattern that wouldn’t be too hard to make,
look sophisticated and would allow for instant cuteness.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you think/make! <3


Please feel free to ask if my directions are muddle-headed, I hope the pictures explain what I can’t properly describe.

The pattern hasn’t been test knit or beta’ed - so please let me know if you find any mistakes/the pattern is unclear.
Thank you!
