Knit a Big Bow

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 :)

Skill level: easy (just knit stitch and basic decreasing-increasing technics) 

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 1, 3, 5, 7, 9-11, 13, 15            Knit            
Row 2 K1, M1Kw, K6, M1Pw, K1 [10]
Row 4 K1, M1Kw, K8, M1Pw, K1 [12]
Row 6 K1, M1Kw, K10, M1Pw, K1 [14]
Row 8 K1, M1Kw, K12, M1Pw, K1 [16]

Row 9-11


Row 12

K1, SSK, K10, K2Tog, K1

Row 14 K1, SSK, K8, K2Tog, K1 [10]
Row 16 K1, SSK, K6, K2Tog, K1 [8]

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.
