The perfect bow TUTORIAL!

Hi there! 😀
I promised to show you a tutorial of the knitted bows I made. And here it is ❤


First, you’ll need yarn, knitting needles, scissors, a crochet needle (in case you end your piece with the crochet bind off) and a sewing needle (big enough to hold the yarn you are using). 🙂


Chain as many stitches as you might need. I made 25.


Row 1: knit

Row 2: purl

… keep doing this until you think, your piece is big enough 🙂 I made 10 rows.


End it with you favorite Bind-Off.Leave a long tail for sewing!


Sew the ends together. I always sew it together with the „Purl“ Side outside so the side you’ll „see“ will be even.


Turn the inside out. 🙂


Use the tail you left to sew your knitted piece into a bow.


Now, you decide: You can either wrap yarn around the middle or knit a small piece and then sew it to the bow, like this…


Well, you can turn your bow into a hairpiece (adding a clip) or you can make a brooch. Or sew it to anything you’d love like a scarf or a shirt or whatever. 🙂

Ha! Hope, you enjoyed this ❤

  1. Thanks for posting this. I’m hooked on knitting my own designs for small, special occasion clutches or shoulder bags and the fashion mags are showing purses with huge bows for spring and next fall. Knitters rule.


  2. Great little tutorial! Need to get some in the round knitting needles though. See you at LA’s chat later on! x

  3. Hi Katja,

    Thanks so much for the knitting lesson 🙂 It’s been years since I’ve made anything with yarn… guess scrapbooking took over my life 🙂 But I will definitely give this project a go. Thank you for the instructions. If I am successful (or not :)), I will let you know!

    Take care and hope you’re having a fantastic Friday!

  4. thanks for sharing this!

    Enjoy your last weekend before joyning the ‚real‘ world!
    Have fun with your mister tonight 😀
