Erika's Knit Bow

Knitting
March 2016
Aran (8 wpi) ?
US 7 - 4.5 mm
16 - 22 yards (15 - 20 m)
This pattern is available for free.

This is a tutorial on how to make a little knit bow using scrap yarn from other projects. You can attach it to a hair-clip, -tie or -band… Or even a pin and use it as a brooch to brighten up any coat or scarf! It can also be used to decorate a key ring, and I think they would look lovely in a garland too!

The same directions can be used to knit a little bow in Aran (10ply or Heavy Worsted) weight yarn in 4.5mm (US 7) needles or with DK (8ply) weight yarn in 3.5mm (US 4) needles.

Materials needed

10g of Aran or DK weight yarn
4.5mm (US 7) or 3.5mm (US 4) needles
Tapestry needle
Scissors
Measuring tape
Hair clip, hair tie or headband, depending on where you want to attach the knit bow

Gauge

Gauge is not critical for the success of this project. If knit in Aran weight and 4.5mm (US 7) needles it will give a 9cm x 5cm (3.5in x 2in) bow and if knit in DK weight yarn and 3.5mm (US 4) needles you will get a 7cm x 4cm (2.7in x 1.5in) bow, approximately.
