Now you can crochet a bow tie from this pattern in just under 20 minutes with interruptions! This crochet pattern is to make a bow tie measuring 4” x 2”. I am putting these on my Christmas tree this year- simple and easy bow ties! I’ve clipped them on to shoes & slid them on hair bands. They’ve been sewn on to market bags, baby shoes and slipped on to doggie collars.

Hello Kitty fans can run a clip or barrette through it and make it their own. Imagine this as a belt buckle or on a hat. You can make anything cuter and more vibrant with a bow tie of any color imaginable! Use them as embellishments for your Baby’s outfits or headbands. I spent months searching for a cute bow tie pattern I liked and decided to wing it. This works up within the hour (with interruptions) and is delightful and simple. After you make a couple of these, check out this adorable roundup of 21 Free Fabu Frozen Crochet Patterns!

Materials need:

Caron’s Simply Soft
Yarn Needle



ch- chain
sc- single crochet
sl st- slip stitch
ea- each
st- stitch
sts- stitches


Special Stitch- Crab Stitch (aka- Reverse Single Crochet):
After completing your first sc, insert hook into the first space immediately to the right (working in reverse order). Yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through both loops on hook.
Continue working in reverse until the pattern gives other instructions. The Crab Stitch creates a nice twist
for this edging.


Finished product is 4” x 2.5”

Body of the Bow Tie:
R1: ch12, sc11 across, ch1, turn
R2-20: sc11, ch1, turn
Fasten off leaving a 16 inch tail that you will crab stitch around the edge. Crocheting around the tail will help thicken and stiffen the edge.
With a new strand, start anywhere you feel comfortable and crab stitch around making sure to place 3 crab stitches at each corner. End at the first crab stitch and fasten off. Sew in the ends. (I like to start my first at the corner and end by making my last 2 in that same corner to total my 3.) Fold the center together and run yarn through it to sew into its fold or simply tie around it to secure it.


Center of Bow Tie:
The length is to your discretion to leave enough room to allow for the collar/headband to pass through.
R1: ch10 to 15 or desired length, turn, sl st across to end of the chain.
R2: turn, sl st again to end and fasten off.
You may sew it onto the bow and fasten closed or leave it open to customize.
