Knitted Bow Necklace (with tutorial) 1


For me, knitwear usually relates with winter season but I love to knit and I can’t stop myself from knitting. So, I set myself a goal to knit something for summer season and not a sweater.

I had lots of thoughts and this is what I knitted:

I used Tivoli Cruise DK (lilac and dark pink) yarns and 5.0 mm knitting needles to knit these bows. I started by knitting a rectangle of 4″ x 6″ (10 cm x 15 cm).

Then I folded it and stitched by the longer line. (After I folded it, the rectangle became 2″ x 6″ (5 cm x 15 cm).)

Then I turned it inside-out.

I bended it around my fingers leaving the seam (which we just finished) outside and stitched the edges with the ladder stitch.

After stitching I got a ‘ring’ with one seam inside of it and one in the front.

Then I made it flat and took about 60″ (1.5 meter) long yarn.

And to make the bow shape I stitched from front to back (on the top):

Then I repeated the same move on the bottom of the ‘ring’. Stitched from front to back (on the bottom):

This is how it looked after shaping stitches were made.

Next, I pulled the yarn:

And I weaved in the end of the yarn in to the back of the bow.

And this is how the finished bow looks.

And the last think was to stitch necklace chain to the bow. I used invisible thread to do so and 2 different length chains.
