2014/50 – A very “in” bow tutorial

They look so cute, and they are super easy. This pattern comes from a beginner crocheter, so this one is definitely something everyone can do. Plus it’s something I think everyone can use – you could glue them to hair clips or pins, or to a headband (which you could buy or make), or you could attach them to safety pins and wear them like a badge, or add them to collars or bags… The list goes on. You could use them with almost anything so they are definitely an essential pattern to have under your belt!
