This free crochet pattern is all about how to crochet a bow with one color easily and fast. I recently made an Advent Wreath which needed some bows to make it look even better and show more Christmas flare. If you prefer making striped bows, I have a free crochet pattern on my website as well.

This pattern is part of the above-mentioned Advent Wreath which was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns who provided me with some free yarn. The yarn I used was Heartland and it was the best yarn for this project.

This pattern is also part of the Advent Wreath Crochet Along. Be sure to check out the main page for that as well.

I absolutely love this yarn and it is from now on one of my favorite go-to yarns. It is so soft and easy to work with. And let me tell you the colors are incredible.

As this pattern is created for the Advent Wreath, please go to Ravelry and add the entire pattern to your Ravelry Favorites. This is also the place where you could purchase the entire pattern at once, which includes all 6 patterns of the Advent Wreath.
