Free Crochet Bow Pattern

This post contains affiliate links.

I wrote this pattern last year and am happy to share it with you here.

These bows are the perfect accent to hats, bags or even shirts. If you’d like to sell finished items from this pattern please do! If you’d like to add a link to this post in your product listing that would be fantastic but it is not required.

H hook 

Worsted weight yarn: I used Red Heart Super Saver

Yarn needle


St = Stitch

Ch = chain

Sc = single crochet

Hdc = half double crochet 

Finished size is approx. 3 inches by 2.5 inches 

Read all directions before beginning.

You can easily adjust the size by chaining any number of chains, using a different weight yarn and or hook and by working more or less rows.


Ch 16

Row 1 – Sc in 2nd ch from hook and every ch across. Ch 1, turn. (15)

Row 2-5 – Hdc in same st and every st across. Ch1, turn. (15)

Row 6 – Sc in same st and every across. (15) Fasten off, weave in ends.

Cut a long length of yarn. Find the middle of your bow, wrap the yarn around once and tie a knot.

Continue to wrap the yarn around the middle of the bow as neatly and evenly as you can until you are happy with the results.  Tie a knot at the back of the bow and fasten off (sometimes I add a tiny dot of glue to make sure the knot holds).
Sew onto a headband, a hat, purse, scarf…whatever makes you happy!
