Not too sure why I haven’t updated about this project but better late than never.
So I’m always on the look out for easy knitting projects, still no luck on learning how to crochet, and awhile back I discovered this great tutorial on knitted bows. Easy to follow and the results are great. If you haven’t followed M-S on facebook you should because sometimes we post projects we are working on without posting about them. The great thing about this tutorial is that you can be a beginner knitter and still be able to create this. I use whatever size needles I have. The bigger the size the bigger the bow. I mostly use a size 8 or size 5.
These bows are great for anything really. I mostly use them for my hair, you can just slip them on a clip or a headband and that is that. No muss no fuss. (odd phrase) I even made one for mys sister’s cat Tomo. As you can see from the picture he wasn’t very happy wearing it…but how cute does he look? Dogs might be a bit more accepting but I doubt it. You can also decorate a gift with these bows. I think it adds something special to the gift. And I’m crap when it comes to gift wrapping. So adding a bow usually helps me out during the holidays. But for some reason I never store those paper bows correctly and they always come out torn or squished. Now I can just slip this on a ribbon and call it a day.
You will get addicted after you make your first one. Fun and easy tutorial below.
