You Will Need
To get started, install the hook to the left or right of the window (depending which way you want to pull the curtain). I installed mine outside of the window frame so I can let as much light in as possible. Next, measure from the hook, around the curtain and back to the hook to determine the length of your tieback. A longer tieback will let the curtain hang without too much bunching, so play with the length to see what you like before you get started.
Measure around your curtain and to the hook to determine the length of your tieback.
Make a foundation chain to match the measured length. Using a worsted-weight yarn and a size F-5 (3.75mm) hook, I made my foundation chain 55 stitches (13 inches) in length. Next, start building up the width of the pattern as follows:
Row 1 (RS): Chain 3 (counts as double crochet), double crochet in 4th ch from hook and in each chain across, turn.
Row 2: Chain 3, double crochet in next dc and each dc across.
Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired width, keeping in mind that the edging will add about another 3/4 inch of width. Fasten off. I made mine 3 rows wide.
Double crochet across the length of the foundation chain for as many rows as desired to create the width of the tieback.
Next, add an easy edging for a little contrast. With the right side of the work facing you, attach the yarn in the upper right-hand corner of the tieback. *2 double crochet in next stitch, slipstitch in each of next 2 stitches; repeat from * around the tieback, working into the sides of the stitches on the short ends. Join with a slipstitch in the first ch. Fasten off.
Add a crochet edging with contrasting yarn.
Make a few crocheted flowers to accent your band.
Weave in the ends of the flowers, sew buttons to their centers (if desired) and then arrange them on the tieback. Fold the tieback in half first, with the short ends facing the side that your curtain will be pulled to. Arrange and sew on the flowers to the front half only of the tieback to be sure you'll see them all.
Arrange the crocheted flowers on the front half of the tieback.
