white, Row3. now you will work 2dc  in first stitch then 1dc in each stitch across until end of the row on the last st make 2dc. ch2 turn.

Row 4-12. repeat row3. and we will switch up the color by use yellow color for 2 row and white color for 1 row.

On this row13. we will start to make a body of the top.

 Row13. now you will work 2dc  in first stitch then 1dc in each stitch across until end of the row on the last st make 2dc.  then ch6 ( size small) turn.

then ch6 ( size small) turn. add chain on each side or you can add more chain to increase your size that will fit you bust.

Row 16 and beyond ,….Repeat row 15 and switch up color until  you get 13 inch long. or your desired length and we will start to making the bow.

Make the bow.

When we get to 13 inch long for the body length now we will start to chain about 100 chain , if you guy love your bow longer then you will add more chain for example 120, 140…. etc.. as you can see in the photo above.

Then row1. we will make dc in each chain and stitch across until the end of the row, ch2 turn.

We will  repeat row1 until you get about 2 inch thick for the bow, if you want the bow bigger you and repeat row1 until you get your thickness of bow like 3 or 4 inch thick. The bigger bow the better.

After we finished first piece then we repeat the same process for the second piece.

After we got 2 pieces , now it’s time to assembly.

Assembly.

Lay 2 pieces in flatted on top of each other.

Then sew on the side, for the bow area no sew for have space to tie up. see photo below.

Make strap for the top.

join new yarn then chain 25 and connect the end of chain to the back piece.

Now time to making the armhole look pretty.

After we create the armhole, now it’s time to make it pretty.

by sc around the arm hole for 1 round including the strap.

then ch2, *dc,ch1, skip1 st then dc in next stitch* repeat * to * around the armhole. Fasten off.

  1. How difficult would it be to leaf off the bow area not my style.

  2. Hi Tonda, If you leave the bow, it will be very easy just leave out at the bow instruction by that I mean no chains at the bottom of the top.

  3. Hi just wanted to say really loved this pattern you made it easy to follow. I made it for my sister in law I’m sure she will love it! I left off the bow and did the strap pattern on the bottom. I am planning to make my self 1 and try another pattern of yours. Thank you x

  4. Hi Lynn, aww that ‘s so sweet of you to let me know , I am so happy that it’s turn out very cute.
