Knitting Smitten
These bow necklaces were one of the first knits I ever designed. They are delicate and oh-so cute. As well as adding them to a necklace chain, try attaching them to other jewellery findings, such as a brooch pin or a ring blank, to create a whole set.

  • Step 1

    To make the bow:
    Using chosen colour, cast on 18 sts.
    Work 10 rows in garter stitch (knit every row).
    Cast off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread the yarn tail onto a yarn needle. Bring the two side edges together and sew the seam using the garter stitch seam method. Insert the needle into the top loop of the stitch on one side and then in the bottom loop of the corresponding stitch on the other side. Continue alternating from side to side.
    Weave in any stray yarn ends. Fold the bow with the seam at the centre back.
    Pinch the centre of the bow together and firmly wrap a long length of yarn several times around the middle. Tie a double knot to secure and weave in the yarn ends.

    Step 2

    To assemble the necklace
    Using two pairs of slim jewellery pliers, open the jump rings and loop them onto a stitch halfway up the inside of each side of the bow, without closing shut. Lay the necklace chain through the jump ring on one side, and close it. Pass
    one end of the chain through the center wrap of the bow and pull
    it through gently until the lengths of chain are even. Lay the chain through the remaining open jump ring and close it to secure.

Hmmm...This is very cute, but I don't knit! I crochet. If you crochet, would you consider posting a crochet version of this bow? Love it!
