Crochet Bow Tie Pattern

This crochet bowtie pattern is a simple rectangle. Alternating rows of texture and single crochet stitches create a fun and stylish addition for an Easter outfit, or dress up day.

A little crochet bowtie for a friend’s new baby is a quick gift. As a mom of boys I know how hard it can be to find unique accessories for our little boys. 

It is a simple crochet project that makes a great stash buster. I have written the bowtie pattern in two sizes for you today.

Yarn

The yarn for this bowtie is #4 medium worsted weight. I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in grey mist.

You can use any yarn in the same weight category. This is a great stash buster pattern.

Stitch

The stitch that creates the little texture bumps in a modified version of the mini bean stitch.

This is one of my favorite texture stitches. The Pebbled Beanie features this stitch in the round.
