These Easy Crochet Bows are just that….they’re so EASY! They are also super fast to make, only taking a few minutes each, which is an added bonus! The free pattern is below, as well as a video tutorial!
I love adding these bows to my amigurumi projects for an extra little girly touch, but they can be added to many different crochet doll and animal projects depending on the look you’re going for. Since I have two daughters, my crochet projects usually turn out pretty girly in the end, just because I’m usually making things for them!
In my Kitty Lovey pattern, I added one of these crochet bows on the kitty’s head as a finishing touch and I think it completed her so nicely! If you’re looking for a cute and quick lovey pattern, check out my Kitty Lovey Crochet Pattern.

- Worsted-weight yarn – I used worsted-weight yarn for the bows that are pictured in this pattern, however you can use different types of yarn. Remember that different weights of yarn will produce different bow sizes.
- Crochet hook – I used a 3.5 mm crochet hook for the bows pictured in this pattern. You can change hook sizes to achieve different sizes of bows, depending on the project you are using it on.
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends and sewing bows onto your crochet projects. Bent yarn needles work great for amigurumi pieces!
- Sl St – Slip Stitch
- MC – magic circle
- Ch – chain
- TR – treble crochet
This pattern starts with a magic circle and only one round is completed. I’ve written the pattern in steps below.
Step 1: Make a magic circle, chain 3.
Step 2: Work 3 treble crochet stitches into the ring, chain 3 and make a slip stitch to the center of the ring.
Step 3: Chain 3 again, make 3 treble crochet stitches into the ring, chain 3, and slip stitch to center ring again.
Step 4: Wrap the yarn ends around the middle of the bow a few times. I wrapped one of the yarn tails around one way and then went the opposite way with the other yarn tail.
Step 5: Use your yarn tails to make a knot at the back of the bow. Weave one of the yarn tails in and cut yarn. The other tail will be used to sew the bow onto the crochet project you’re adding the bow to.
You’re all finished! I hope you love making these bows and embellishing your crochet projects with them!
