I Heart Bows!

I recently switched to a short natural ‘do and hair accessories have become my best friend. I whipped up this floppy bow headband and I’m really loving it.

This is a quick project (2-3 hours) for children through adults. Sizing can be altered by knitting fewer inches starting after row 24.

Cast on 24 sts. Knit 4 rows in garter stitch.
Row 5 and all odd rows: Purl all sts
Row 6,8,10,12: Knit all sts
Row 14: K1, K2tog, knit to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1.
Row 16,18,20,22: Complete the same as row 14.
Row 24: Knit all 14 sts.
Work in stockinette for 21 inches or desired length.
Shaping the right bow: (you will be increasing)
Right side rows: K1, inc 1 in next stitch,knit to the last 2 sts, inc 1 in next stitch, K1. (Total: 16 sts on needle)
Wrong side rows: Purl all sts.
Repeat 5 times. You should end up with 24 sts.
Once increases are completed knit 5 rows in stockinette. Then knit 5 rows in garter stitch.
Bind off 24 sts. Sew in ends using a tapestry needle.

Enjoy!
