Chain 15.

Row 1: Working into the back bump behind the starting chains, hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each ch across. (14 sts)

From now on you’ll work all the hdc sts of the next rows in the 3rd loop at front, this will create the faux knit ridged pattern!

Row 2: ch1, turn; using the 3rd loop at front: work 1 hdc in each hdc across, at the last st use both loops to prevent holes at the edge. ( 14 sts)

Row 3-6: repeat as row 2. You should end up with a rectangle that has 2 ridges through the middle on the right side and 3 ridges on the wrong side. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Center of the bow:
Wrap some yarn around the mid of the rectangle and tighten it neatly, make a double knot to secure, then wrap the yarn several times around the center until you are satisfied with the way it looks. Secure tightly at the back. You can either weave in the ends or use them to sew the bow onto other projects.
