Big Red Bows make festive decor during the holiday season and now you can crochet one! Hang it on your door, wreath, tree, packages, and more! I’ve written out a simple pattern but included a little video tutorial to show a few of the steps that might be confusing (like the standing stitches and how to tie the bow). And of course the bow can be made in any color you choose! Can’t wait to see your versions of this big beautiful bow!
