Bow Appliqué Pattern


  • Yarn of your choice, I used Red Heart Super Saver in the color orchid.
  • Hook size of your choice, I used a 3.75 mm hook.
  • A yarn needle.
  • Scissors.


st (sts) – stitch (stitches)

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

Rnd – round

() – total number of stitches at the end of each round

If you do not know any of these stitches, check out my Stitch Dictionary here.

Note about the pattern: The main body of the bow is worked in amigurumi style (continuous rounds), not joined rounds.

Let’s get started:

Rnd 1: Ch 25 and sc in the first ch to create a ring/circle. Be careful not to twist the ch. Sc in each of the remaining chains. (25)

Rnd 2-4: Sc in every st. (25)

Sl st and fasten off, leaving an extra long tail for wrapping around to create the bow and a little extra if you plan on sewing the finished bow to another project.


Step 1: Turn the bow over so that you can see the beginning tail and the long tail you fastened off with. Weave in the beginning tail.

Step 2: Take the tail that you fastened off with and start to tightly wrap it around the middle of the body of the piece. You can wrap it as many times as you like. I wrapped mine about 15-20 times.

Step 3: Secure the rest of the yarn. I did this by taking a yarn needle and threading the tail of the yarn we’re working with through the back of where we wrapped the yarn. So, basically, we’re looping it the other way. Instead of going up and down, go side to side. Just make sure you leave enough yarn if you plan on sewing the finished bow to another project.

Great job! You can make this bow bigger or smaller depending on the type of, yarn or hook size you use. You can also increase or decrease the starting chain, or the amount of rows you crochet. Bows can make great additions to any amigurumi or crochet project. They are cute and very easy to make.
