Mix and Match Crochet Hair Bows – Part 2

I hope you enjoyed the two FREE hair bow patterns that I shared last week.   This week I want to share with you another two hair bow patterns, the straight bow (which does not have any ends) and the large bow, which is a larger version of the round ended bow but perfect for pony tails or when you only need one bow in your hair.

Both of these bows were originally made in the Aldi DK sparkly yarn with a 5mm hook, but they could just as easily be made with any yarn or hook size you have available, it will just alter the final size slightly, so feel free to experiment with whatever you have in your stash to get your hair bows.

I’ll keep this week short and sweet as all the bow information is really in the patterns.   If you missed the release of the round ended bow and the bow with springy ends then you can find their patterns here.

Join me next week to get the little motif patterns to really jazz up your bows and make them special.   See you then,

  1. Notes

Here are a few handy tips to help you with the pattern.

  • There is no specific gauge for these bows, just work as you like. They may come out a slightly different size to mine but this doesn’t really matter.
  • Once the bows are made then they are glued to the crocodile clips using hot glue in a glue gun. Once cooled they are ready for use.
  • I made the bows in pairs, but you could also just make them for individual use too.
  • Commas are use to divide stitches, if you see instructions that do not have a comma in between then they should be placed in the same stitch.
  • The mix and match bows can be made by making any of the 4 bow options below and then adding any of the motif patterns (or none) to the bows.
  • The bows use up odd amounts of yarn and can be done in most light weight yarns.
