Crochet some bright and curly hair bows to tie around a ponytail. These beginner crochet bows can also be made into bookmarks or key chains.
- Yarn: Caron International's Simply Soft Brites 1 skein color of your choice
- Crochet hook size G (4.0 mm)
Crochet chain 14 stitches.
Working in the top loop of each chain work 6 double crochets in the fourth chain from the hook.
Work 7 double crochets in each remaining chain (there should be ten more chains left.) Keep your hook in the final loop. You should have a nice curlicue shape.
With the crochet hook in a loop at the top of the curlicue, chain 30 more stitches.
Now you are going to create another curlicue. Work 6 double crochets in the fourth chain from the hook.
Work 7 double crochets in the next 10 chain stitches. There should be about 15 chain stitches in between the curlicues. Use this area to tie around a pony tail.
Cut the yarn off, pull the yarn through the final yarn loop and finish the project by weaving the loose string through the curlicue.
You can tie this around a pony tail like a hair bow.
You can make matching curlicue hair bows for pig tails.
If you want a longer curlicue just plan to do the double crochets over a few more chain stitches. You will need fewer chain stitches if you want a short curlicue.
