Small Bow

A cute and pretty small bow pattern for you to crochet, they are great to make and can be used to adorn anything ie household things, shoulder bags, headbands, baby coats, blankets etc. Add a clip to the back and use it as a hair clip or a child’s brooch.

It works up in a matter of minutes, and is an ideal crochet pattern for the beginner crocheter too, I spent ages looking for a small bow to add to my baby items and could only find larger one’s, so I set to and wrote my own, I never realized how simple the process was.
