I’m currently obsessed with making knitted bows. Over this gloomy weekend, I made about six of them, all in this creamy strawberry red and heather gray yarn. They are pretty simple and I love the instant results (unlike my blanket that is still in progress). Not to mention, they are incredible adorable and cozy looking.
I used a simple stitch to make a knitted rectangle about six inches long and an inch wide. Once it was completed, I folded the two ends of the rectangle towards the middle and wrapped a bunch of yarn around the center to make the “knot” of the bow. I also varied the size of the rectangle to make different sized bows. Each bow comes out looking a little different, making them each unique.
I haven’t figured out exactly what to use all of my bows for yet, although they could be great ornaments for Christmas, magnets, pins, of cute dog collars. For now, I’m just enjoying making them.
