I’m very happy to present you a special DIY project created by Quebec’s very own Mary Kate & Ashley sisters, the lovely & stylish twins Claude and Romie A. Pigeon! Made from a very small gauge wool, acrylic or cotton thread, these hair bows are to die for and are pretty easy to do! If you are totally new to knitting, I suggest you check out this tutorial (pardon the music…) it will give you the basics for the technique shown here! So you’ve got your skills dialed in? Let’s go!
* If you want more of a summer look for you bow, choose a cotton thread instead of wool!
Material needed: scissors, wool or cotton thread, assorted needles (see on wool package to match your needle to your thread’s gauge)
Start by casting on 13 to 15 loops:
Knit a 13 x 13 or 15 x 15 square piece using the basic stitch technique (called point mousse, which is the easiest!) :
With thread and needle, fold your square in two keeping the pattern horizontal. You can use the invisible stitch technique show on this tutorial
Also stitch both ends to create a perfect bow:
Once all done with the stitching, pinch your bow right in the middle and wrap the center with thread, hiding your knot at the back.
Slip a bobbypin in the middle of the bow and VOILÀ! :)
