Hi friends, this post contains affiliate links.
These little girls love bows! Big bows, small bows, sparkly bows.... crocheted bows? Yes. We are all about bows in my house. My little one will wear a bow every day and my big girl loves to wear big bows to school with a ponytail. I don't know about you but I'm not particularly good at working with ribbon, and tying bows. Also, wide grosgrain ribbon can be pretty pricey! But you and I know how to crochet, right? And we've also got tons of yarn, don't we? It's OK I won't tell anyone how big your stash is! So lets make our own trendy hair bow in any color we want!
|A Bow Bow in Big Girl's school colors!|
I'm using a selection of Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight yarns, as well as some small balls of scrap yarn I had laying around. These pretty bows are the perfect stash buster! I developed this project as an adaptation of my applique bow pattern. If you like appliques and how cute they look when you sew them on to a project, you can find more free patterns at allfreecrochet.com, the ultimate source for free patterns in a multitude of projects!

To make this crocheted Bow Bow Barrette you will need to purchase alligator hair clips.
I purchased these alligator clips from Amazon. They are nice and large 3" in length, just perfect for this project and many others. They're a good value and are exactly the same style clip that comes on large fancy store-bought ribbon bows.
You'll also need a hot glue gun, yarn needle and any worsted weight yarn. Here's a great glue gun, perfect for this project. With so many other household uses, if you don't already have a glue gun, now is the time.
