Diamonds Crochet Hair Bow


An image of two crochet hair bows. Each crochet hair bow is made in two colors of yarn. One is a mint background with blue diamonds, and the other bow is purple with a white and purple variegated diamonds.

Crocheting is not just a hobby; it’s a way to add a personal touch to your style. A fun crochet project that you can easily whip up is a crochet hair bow with scrap yarn. And before you think crochet hair bows are just for little girls, know that the 90s and early 2000s fashion trends are back in full effect, so wear your crochet hair bows proudly.

Creating a crochet hair bow allows you to play with colors and patterns, making each piece unique. Imagine a bow where one color forms the background while the second color weaves into diamond shapes, adding a touch of elegance and charm. Sparkly yarn, anyone? This project is not only a great way to use up leftover yarn but also a fantastic opportunity to experiment with color and textured yarn.

Whether you’re new to crocheting or a seasoned pro, this free crochet hair bow pattern is perfect for all skill levels. Once you master the art of making bows, you can easily expand your repertoire to include other crochet hair accessories like headband, scrunchies, and bandanas.

Why a Crochet Hair Bow?

I am one of the crochet designers in the 60 Minutes or Less Left over Yarn crochet Patterns blog hop. This is a fun and short event hosted by Sweet Potato 3, in which you can download a different crochet pattern each day between April 15-28.

When thinking of quick crochet projects, many may consider a hat in a double crochet or chunky yarn with a large crochet hooks, but you’ll discover several crochet patterns throughout the blog hop that can be made within an hour.

A crochet hair bow has been made tons of times, but using two colors and the diamond lattice stitch adds a little pizazz to this accessory. Also, it works up super quick and uses a small amount of yarn. Although it’s a hair bow that requires a hair tie to be added, you can consider adding it to a headband, as well.

We cannot talk about crochet without talking about the yarn. With lots of wonderful options, there’s no limit to color combinations that can be created for the Diamonds Crochet Hair Bow.

Since this crochet hair bow is about using scrap yarn, I grabbed two colors of WeCrochet Brava yarn in Mint and Celestial from my yarn stash. Brava Worsted is an acrylic yarn that comes in a wide range of colors, 50 to be exact. Each skein comes in 218 yards per 100g / 3.5 oz for just $3.99. At the time of this writing, all Brava yarns, including different weights, is 20% off the entire month of April.

Brava Worsted is a great yarn to add to the stash, as it works well for so many projects from accessories to garments.
