This Crochet Mini Bow is another heart-shaped project. The bow is made with two connected hearts. I’ve crocheted these mini bows with cotton thread size 10 and they turned out really small – only about 1”.
You are welcome to experiment with different sizes of threads, yarns and hooks to get different sizes of the bow. This Crochet Mini Bow would be perfect for such projects as scrapbooking and card making. You can use these bows to embellish baby clothes or a baby blanket, decorate picture frames, or photo albums…

DC – double crochet

Cut the thread leaving a 10-13” tail, pull it through the last stitch and thread it into a tapestry needle. Bring thread to the center of the bow and wrap it around 8-10 times. Secure and weave in the ends.
Also you can make these bows in two colors. Make the bow according to instructions with the first color, but do not make the center of the bow. Secure and weave in the ends.
Thread a second color crochet thread into the needle, make a little knot on the end and bring the needle through the center from the back of the bow to the front. Wrap it around 8-10 times. Secure and weave in the end.
Here are three bows made with different yarns. The large bow was made with medium weight worsted yarn, the medium bow made with light weight size 3 yarn and the small bow made with crochet thread size 10.
