The bow project!

This is my first knitting project. it's very easy and really cute!
I will show you two ways to make and wear a knitted bow, you can choose which one is best for you!
For those of you who are total newbies l give you links with all that you will need!

1. The hair bow!
Cast on (CO) 20 stitches(sts) - or more it depends on how big you want your bow to be.
Row1: knit across the row
Repeat row1 as many time you need until you reach the desirable size. This should look almost like a square.
Cast off (BO)
Take an elastic hairband and some yarn and wrap the square in the middle together with the elastic ban. And you are good to go!

*if you are keen on knitting and sewing you can also make it a little bit longer and saw the edges together and give it a little 3D effect!

2. The necklace!

Part one:
Co 25sts or as many as you want that's on you
Row1: knit across the row
Row2: repeat row1
Row3: knit 2 sts (K2) purl all the stitches until you reach the last 2 stitches, knit the last 2 sts (K2)
Repeat row 3 until your knitting looks like a squire
Then knit across the last 2 rows
Cast off

Part two:
Cast on 4 sts
Knit all the rows until your ribbon can be wrapped around your bow
Cast off
Sew the two parts together and adjust it to a chain!
