Crochet Bow Tie Tutorial & Free Pattern

I worked up a quick little crochet bow tie for a friend’s new baby. I wanted to add a little textured interest since it’s basically a simple rectangle. Plus, as a mom of boys I know how hard it can be to find unique accessories for our little boys. It was a simple project so I worked one up for my 3 year old, which means I have two sizes for you today.
