Free Little Christmas Bow Pattern

Put a little personal touch on your gifts this year with these little bows.  Attach them to anything with ribbon or make a long chain for your own ribbon.  Great to add to gift tags.  I used metallic yarn to add a little sparkle. 

Ch 12, dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across (10)
Ch 3, turn, dc in same st and each stitch across to last stitch, put 2 dc in last st.  (12)
Ch 1, sc around entire bow.  Sl st in first sc and fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Center Band:
Ch 7, sc in first ch from hook and each ch across.  Fasten off with long tie for sewing.
FINISHING:  Place center band around bow (stretch) and sew together at back.  Finish off and weave in all ends.  If you’d like, you can make a long chain and use as ribbon to attach bow.

Free Owl Fingerless Glove Pattern

I'm in love with these gloves and Erika Ward on Ravelry has the pattern as a free download!  This is definitely something you don't want to miss and it's pretty impressive that it's free.  I, at least, would have expected to pay money for it.  A great gift idea for the owl lover in the family, or just something different and unique.  If you want a quick project that's sure to please the receiver, check it out!      Go here!
