Crocheted Hair Bow Tutorial

Get ready for spring with this uber-easy and super cute bow!

For this project, you will need:

  • An inexpensive worsted weight yarn.  I'm using Red Heart Super Saver in Petal Pink for my DD
  • A crochet hook of appropriate size or suggested by the yarn manufacturer.  I'm using a size 5.5mm or  US "I" hook
  • Scissors
  • Bobby Pin

Step 1.)  Create a slip knot, leaving approx. 12" of tail

Step 2.) With the working yarn on the left, create a loop with your pointer finger and thumb.  Do not put this on the hook.

Step 3.) With the tail yarn on the right, repeat the loop procedure from Step 2.  Do not put this loop on the hook.  (You should now have two unsecured loops on either side of the hook of approximately the same size.)

Step 4.) Take the right loop and cross it under the left loop (underneath the hook).  Sorry I had to lay this down to take the pic.

Step 5.) Bring the right hand loop over front of the left hand loop and through the hole created in the center of the two loops.  It should look like this when finished:

Step 6.) Attach a Bobby Pin to the slip knot (where the hook is located).

Step 7.) Remove hook.  Snip tail and working yarns to approx. 2 1/2 inches.  Attach bobby pin to hair and work your new, fabu bow!

Awesomesauce!  And Happy April Fool's Day! :)



  1. oh man, you got me. how cool is that crochet hook though! love it, where did you get it?

  2. Stephanni - they are KnitPro Symphonie Dbl Ended Wood Hooks. I have a set of the dbl ended (2 different sizes per hook) and a set of the single ended. They are sold in Europe. Bought them on EBay since I live here in the US.

  3. I knew on the last photo it had to be an April Fool's joke!
