Bow Ties Stitch Tutorial and Afghan Square

Let's Learn a New Crochet Stitch! - Bow Ties Stitch Tutorial | www.thestitchinmommy.com

It’s time to learn a new crochet stitch! This week I am going to show you the Bow Tie Stitch. This stitch is so cute and would make for an adorable afghan! For this tutorial, I will show you how to make an approximately 7″x 7″ square. I know I usually try to show you an 8″ x 8″ square but the stitch multiple would have caused it to be too large. You can add a single crochet or double crochet border to bring it up to an 8″ x 8″ square. I hope you enjoy the tutorial! Happy Crocheting!

  1. I really like the bowtie stitch Amy. Is it your own? You did a wonderful job with your explanations. This goes in my project bag.

  2. I am sorry but i cant order from Amazon because they dont deliver in Norway…
    It is so annoying because there is so many things i would love to buy from them.
    What to do? Do you have any suggestions to have i can buy the same things?
    Kindly regards from

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that Liz! Do you have any craft or yarn stores that sell American yarn? The yarn I chose is not necessary for the tutorial. You can use any yarn that you want. If you have any cotton or acrylic that is a size 4 worsted, you will get the same results. 🙂
