Mermaid Bow Band Crochet Pattern

 Read Pattern FREE on the blog     


The Mermaid Bow Band is a free Tunisian crochet bow pattern that is great for exploring how Tunisian crochet stitches work. The firm, dense texture creates a bow with good stability that could be used as jewellery, hair accessories, appliqués for homewares or clothing and trims for shoes and bags, plus so many other ways. Do let me know how you plan to use yours in the comments at the end of the page! I've included instructions for a cord to fasten it so you can use it as a hair ribbon curtain tie-back or choker. Perhaps you'll think of other uses too. Let me know in the comments at the end.


Size: 9cm/3.5” tall and wide

Tension: 6 sts and 6.5 rows = 2.5cm/1” using a 3.75mm hook, and after blocking.

Working method: The pieces are worked flat from the RS.



30m/35yds of Main Colour (MC) King Cole Giza (100% cotton; 4ply/fingering; 160m / 175yd per 50g) or similar yarn

Optionally add small scraps of similar yarn as contrast colour (CC) approx 1m/40" for each stripe desired

Sample in: White 2190 (MC), Fondant 2292 (CC)

3.5mm (US E/4) hook. This doesn't have to be a Tunisian crochet hook or even a straight crochet hook as long as it has 3.75cm/1 1/2" of straight neck before widening but it will be easier for you if it has a pointy tip

Yarn needle and scissors
