Knitted Hair Bow
Hope you like my latest crafty project. Including the time to figure out the pattern and write it down, this took about 10 minutes. It can be attached to any kind of hair accessory base. Hair clip, band, barrettes, slide, …you get the idea.
The yarn I used was a random ball from my stash. I’m not entirely sure of the yarn type but it is very similar to kid mohair. It felts very easily, but this will only help stabilize the design.
The pattern I used is below. Let me know if you use it. I’d love to see your take on it. Btw, I use standard abbreviations in my patterns. So you can refer to any knitting magazine or book if you’re not familiar with the terms.
Kfb = Knit into the front and back of stitch. This increases your row.
What you’ll need
10mm Knitting Needles

C/o 2sts (make sure you leave at least an 8in tail, this is used to attach your button later, and used to attatch to your hair accesories)
1- kfb, kfb [4sts]
2- kfb, k2, kfb [6sts]
3- k2tg, k2, k2tg [4sts]

Keep last st on needle
Repeat Rows 1-5, cut yarn leaving 8in to fasten off, threading back through to the centre of the bow with both tails.
Position button in the middle of your bow and sew on using the tails of yarn. Pull tight and secure at back.
To attach to your clip or slide, use a multi-purpose glue that sticks fabric and metal, HT2 would be a good choice.
