You will love the simplicity in this crochet Bowtie Stitch! It is worked by combining a few basic crochet stitches.
The most challenging part of the design will be it’s five row repeat, but even that I am sure you will get the hang of. Essentially the stitch pattern is comprised of double crochet rows with chain stitches and single crochet stitches with chain stitches. The “bow” in the pattern is created by working a single crochet, but over the row below and into the space two rows below. This will gather all of the chain spaces together.

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in one colour. It is a worsted weight, 100% cotton yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with stripes of colour!
