Sweet Crocheted Bow Clip Tutorial and Free Pattern

Hey all!  I hope that your Christmas was WONDERFUL!! 

If you read last week's Li'l Miss Bunny Tutorial all the way to the end (yeah, it was pretty long), you would have read that I was thinking about making Tuesday, Tute Tuesday.  Well, I've thought and today is officially Tute Tuesday!!  YAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!(Shakes arms above head Kermit style.)

Today I have a sweet little crocheted bow clip for you.  I've been busy making a bunch in lots of different colors.  If you don't really crochet but have always wanted to or you crochet just a little, that's ok, this is THE EASIEST pattern ever.  Like, ever ever.  (But if you really don't know how, there are TONS of tutorials on YouTube.  Just search "crochet".  For this pattern all you need to know how to do is a chain, turning, and single crochet .)

*Note:  If you are a seasoned crocheter and would prefer a straight forward pattern scroll down to the bottom of the pictures.*

Sweet Little Bow Clip Pattern:
Row 1: Ch. 9 turn
Row 2: Starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each st across for 8 sc, ch 1 turn
Row 3: sc 8, ch 1 turn
Row 4: sc 8, tie off and weave in ends

Now, to make it a bow, you are going to take some of the same yarn you used to crochet your little rectangle (or a different yarn if you want a contrasting color; your choice) and wrap it around the center of your rectangle about 20 times fairly tightly.  Then tie it the ends of your yarn together on the back side of your bow.  Take a moment and fluff your bow while your hot glue gun is heating up (or you could plan ahead better then me and heat up your glue gun while you are crocheting your rectangle, but still fluff your bow.) ;)  Now glue your little bow on to your chosen clip.  I use little snap clips, but alligator clips would work just as well.  (Speaking of, does anyone know a good place to get alligator clips?  I've looked everywhere and am still empty handed. )

Now see my next post for Tute {Yourself} Tuesday (a linky party!!) to share what you have been upto!
