Materials (Affiliate Links):


  • Chain

  • SC - Single Crochet

  • Slip Stitch

Present Base Pattern:

Chain 10

Rows 1-9: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (9 stitches)


  • After the chain 1 stitch at the end of row 9, continue working down the left side of the project with slip stitches until you've reached the top row again.

  • We will add a chain 1 in each corner to keep the square shape.


  • When we've returned to the top row, slip stitch in the first 5 stitches.

  • In the fifth stitch, chain 20, then slip stitch in the same stitch again.

  • Slip stitch in the last 4 stitches, chain 1, tie off with a short tail and pull through the chain stitch to secure.

  • Weave in the ends.

Think of it as creating a giant plus sign on the square.

  • Create a slip knot on your hook and join in the center row on the far right side with a slip stitch.

  • Continue slip stitching across the center of the square until you reach the center left side.

  • Tie off with a long enough tail to weave in the end.

  • Repeat these steps starting in the bottom center, slip stitching until you reach the top center.


We want to leave a medium tail at the beginning and the end.

Chain 26, tie off

  • Fold into a bow shape without actually tying a bow.

  • Taking a new string of yarn, tie a double knot over the center of the folded bow.

  • Using your yarn needle, pull either side of the double-knotted ends through to the back of the present and tie off there to attach.

  • Using your yarn needle, weave the ends of the chains through the chains until you reach the bow's center and pull those through to the back of the work and tie off as well.

  • Trim any excess yarn!

I hope you have enjoyed creating with me!
