It’s time to get those crochet hooks out! This is going to be such a fun week! I am helping to kick off a week long crochet garland blog hop – brought to you by me and 6 other amazing bloggers!
Every blogger will be posting a different crochet garland tutorial – and they are all so cute! Here’s a sneak peek at all the projects.
So fun right?
I’ll have links for you here every day this week so you can check them all out.
But first – it’s my turn with my Pom Poms and Bow Crochet Garland.
It’s the perfect beginner project – the bows are made with single crochet stitches and they have cute little pom pom ties to finish them off!
They make me think of snow bunnies and cute winter outfits and Christmas sweaters!
Here’s the pattern:
I used Red Heart Soft Yarn in colors:
- Really Red
For the Bow:
Turn, single crochet 32.
Ch 1, turn, sc 32.
Repeat 8 more times. Finish off.
Bring the two short sides together. Using a yarn needle, stitch the two short sides together with a piece of coordinating yarn.
Switch colors – I used the white on all the bows to tie them all together but you can do whatever you want! :)
Leave a long tail of white yarn – about 9″. Start wrapping the yarn around the center of the bow, pulling in the middle to form that bow look. Keep wrapping until the center is as full as you’d like. Leave another length of yarn about 9″ long. Tie the ends in a knot.
Create two small white pom poms, about 1″ around. You can use a piece of cardboard, a fork, or a pom pom maker. Use a yarn needle and thread one of the bow ends. Run the thread through the center of the pom pom and pull the pom pom up a little higher than you’d like it to sit. Knot the yarn and trim off the end. Pull the pom pom back down. Repeat for the other tie.
Repeat for as many bows as you’d like!
Here’s the rest of the Bloggers and the days they are posting:

I love to crochet ornaments, garlands and scarves this time of year. They’re quick to do and portable. I can toss the project in a bag and carry it with me or sit with the family at night while keeping my hands busy. Thank you. I hope you have an especially blessed day!!
I’m new to crocheting, so I haven’t had the opportunity to crochet anything for the holidays in years past. This garland is fantastic!! I plan on giving it a try for sure!! Thanks for offering the giveaway!
I rarely crochet decorations, but these are all so cute. My favorite thing to crochet for the holidays is gift items.
I like making stockings
Ohmygoodness, these are absolutely ADORABLE! Since the weather is getting colder, it’s becoming that time for me to start up my knitting addiction once again and these are PERFECT!
