Easy Curl Hair Bows


  • 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. 

Please note:
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.

I made these using sc instead of dc and they are just as cute, also I make the chain longer so they can tie it on pony tails.I have been making these for years. Thank you for posting then.

This is supper cute on my Daughter's pig tails. It is a little cumbersome at first, but you will figure it out soon. I suggest that you strongly hold onto the pieces of chain that you haven't crocheted into yet. If you don't, the yarn will stretch too tight for you to crochet into the last few chain stitches.

Kindly explain the instructions more clearly. When you do 6 dc on the 4th chain from the hook and dc on the remaining chains I don't understand how there will be 10 more chains since we start with only 14 chains. Kindly explain in details at the earliest . Thanks you. Usha

I've used these on the top of children's hats. Just add some more chains between the curlicue's and make the curlicue'e a little bit longer. I usually use a size H hook. Cut a piece of yarn about 8" to 10" long the same color as the curliecue. Thread yarn through yarn needle. Put needle, from the inside of hat, directly up through the top of the hat. Take the curliecue and put the center of the chain directly across the top. Go through the chain with needle and back down through the center two times. Take needle off and tie both ends of the yarn together and knot. Cut off remaining yarn.

These hair bows, made in matching yarn together with the Cute Kids Cuffs Bracelet would dress up any outfit for a little girl.
