I've knitted this bow a few weeks ago, I was just playing with a small amount of leftover yarn. I think it would be fun to attach to a headband or to a simple beanie. Since I can't wear funky accessories in my office, it would be a great gift for a teen girl in my family.
It is really easy to make, if you have a free half hour, just give it a try :)
For the sample I used up approx. 60 yds Adriafil New Zealand worsted weight yarn
and U.S. 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles
st - stitch
K - knit
M1Kw - make one stitch knitwise
M1Pw - make one stitch purlwise
K2Tog - knit 2 stitches together
SSK - slip slip knit
Cast on 8 sts.
|Row 2||K1, M1Kw, K6, M1Pw, K1|||
|Row 4||K1, M1Kw, K8, M1Pw, K1|||
|Row 6||K1, M1Kw, K10, M1Pw, K1|||
|Row 8||K1, M1Kw, K12, M1Pw, K1|||
K1, SSK, K10, K2Tog, K1
|Row 14||K1, SSK, K8, K2Tog, K1|||
|Row 16||K1, SSK, K6, K2Tog, K1|||
Knit 4" (10 cm) long body.
Tip: if you knit the body longer, just wrap around your head, double knot and voilá you're having a headband!
Repeat Row 1-16.
Bind off and tie the bow.
