I wear buns. A lot. And sometimes I like to dress them up a bit with some home-made bows. They may make the bun look more dorky/preppy, but I like ’em.
Small amount of yarn (I had some variegated baby weight laying around)
Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook
row 1: First double crochet in second stitch from hook, double crochet row,
rows 2-4: ch. 2, double crochet all rows
Leave long tail for stitching the bow into shape
First double crochet in second stitch from hook, double crochet row
Making the bow:
Cinch bow in center, use long yarn tail to stitch into place. Add bow tie and stitch into place. Weave in ends.
Use a bobby pin to attach to hair, or attach hair elastic before sewing on the bow tie.
