This project is a very simple and quick one, which makes sense as it was a really last minute birthday present. I had it done in 45 minutes, and even that was with a redo and writing down the pattern.

Step 1: Needed Materials, Used Stitches, and Other Notes

Needed Materials:


  • worsted weight yarn, it is better if it is softer yarn, as the neck is sensitive to such things
  • a size f (3.75 mm) crochet hook
  • scissors
  • a yarn needle
  • a small button
  • thread that matches your yarn color
  • a needle


Used Stitches:


  • chain (ch)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • decrease (dec)
  • increase (inc)
  • double crochet (dc)


Other Notes:


  • If you look in my pictures, you will notice that my thread color matches my button color and not my yarn color. Doing that causes uneeded stress, as no one will ever see that the button color matches the thread as it is on the inside edge of the strap, and if you if your button and yarn color differ and the thread color matches the button, you have to make sure that none of the button color shows through on the other side of the work


<p>That's really cute! I don't know that I'd call it 'faux', it looks like you could wear it the same as any other bow tie. </p>
<p>I am glad you think it is cute. I used faux, as made in imitation, as you would not knot it as you would with a traditional bow tie. In my mind, that was enough to make it faux. (Sorry for taking a few days to reply)</p>
