Make a hair bow with this easy crochet bow pattern and be the envy of everyone you know!
This would look great clipped into the back of your hair – if you have it up in a messy bun, or in a bunch of other cool styles.
Plus this pretty bow hair accessory would make a great quick gift, especially for kids or teens, as they love all kinds of hair clips.
I made this using double knit yarn and a 4mm (US G/6) crochet hook.
