Crochet bow pattern

Make this easy crochet bow for your own hair!

This hair bow is crocheted to lay flat by using chains on the edges instead of working single crochets all the way around. I was trying for a rounded Hello Kitty effect. It's made in 3 parts which are stitched together then stitched to a hair clip.

You will need:
Worsted weight yarn- I used Lily Sugar 'N Cream in  Light Blue
Size F hook
Yarn needle

American terminology
Ch=chain
Sc=single crochet
dec sc= decrease over 2 stitches in single crochet
sl st= slip stitch
st or sts= stitch or stitches

Make 2:
Ch 8 (ch 7 plus 1 to turn)
Round 1: Sc in front loop of each stitch of the starting chain, ch 2, turn chain and sc in opposite loop of starting chain, ch 2, sl st to starting sc to join (7 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 2: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), 2 sc in first stitch, sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc next st, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sl st to starting chain to join. (9 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 3: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), sc in first stitch, sc in next 8 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sc in next 9 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sl st to starting sc to join (9 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 4: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), dec sc , sc in next 5 stitches, dec sc, ch 2, skip ch 2 space,  dec sc , sc in next 5 stitches, dec sc, ch 2, sl st to first sc to join (7 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 5: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), sc in first stitch, sc in next 6 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sc in next 7 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sl st to starting sc to join (7 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 6: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), dec sc , sc in next 3 stitches, dec sc, ch 2, skip ch 2 space,  dec sc , sc in next 3 stitches, dec sc, ch 2, sl st to first sc to join (5 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 7:  Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), sc in first stitch, sc in next 4 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sc in next 5 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sl st to starting sc to join (5 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 8: Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), dec sc , sc in next stitch, dec sc, ch 2, skip ch 2 space,  dec sc , sc in next stitch, dec sc, ch 2, sl st to first sc to join (3 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)
Round 9-10:  Ch 1 to turn, (does not count as first stitch), sc in first stitch, sc in next 2 stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sc in next  3stitches, ch 2, skip ch 2 space, sl st to starting sc to join (3 sts on each side, 2 ch 2 spaces)

Break off end. Sew the two pieces together on the narrow ends.

Middle:
Ch 11 loosely
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook, sc in each stitch across ch 1 to turn.
Row 2-4: sc in each stitch across, ch 1 to turn

Break off ends, wrap it around the narrow section of the bow and stitch ends together and secure to bow. Then stitch the bow on to a barrette, comb or hair slide!

You can also start with a chain 5, increase to 7 stitches and decrease from there to make a smaller bow. But I like this size!

Check out the gorgeous sunrise we had this morning!
