Little Bow Tie Applique

This is a quick and easy pattern for a little Bow Tie Applique.

The Bow Tie Applique is ideal to embellish your crochet projects but also clothes, or other personal objects.

I created this pattern for my Elephant Baby Rattle, and this is why for this project, I used Schachenmayr Catania cotton, which is the same yarn as for my Amigurumi. However, you can crochet these Bow Ties Appliques with any yarn of your choice and the appropriate hook size.
Just remember that the final dimensions will change depending on the yarn you use.
