Knit Bow Finished Measurements
Bow measures 4.5″ x 2.25″ (11.43cm x 5.72cm)
- Worsted weight yarn (I used Peaches & Cream Cotton) Less than 1 skein
- US #8 knitting needles
- 16″ of chain
- 4 jumprings (5mm — 22 gauge works well)
- jewelry clasp
- needle nose or chain nose pliers (or if you want to get a full set of jewelry tools, this set is great)
- 18sts and 24 rows = 4”
Note: Gauge, yarn and needle sizer are not critical here. Modify your yarn and needle size to change the size of your bow.
Main Bow Pattern
CO 9 sts
Border: k 2 rows
row 1: knit row
row 2: k2, purl til 2 sts left, k2
repeat row 1 and 2 until measures 3.5”, making sure to end on ROW 1.
Border: k 2 rows
CO 4 sts
k in garter stitch until piece measures about 2”, or can snugly wrap around the middle
Wrap the tie around the middle of the bow, stitch ends of the tie together to secure in place.
Making The Necklace
Use needle nose pliers to attach chain to either side of the bow with jumprings. I use 2 pieces of chain, each 8 inches long, and use a lobster claw clasp in the back.
