Knit Bow

I saw a sweater today that had the most adorable bow on it. I didn't care much for the sweater itself, but the bow really did something for it, I just had to try to make the bow. Luckily I had all the materials I needed at home: a sweater and some matching yarn. The yarn I used is from a skeen I purchased in Japan last year and have not used yet. I bought a few skeens from this particular trip, waiting to make a special project, but the color was such a perfect match to my sweater, so I just went ahead and used it. Luckily, the bow is small, so there's a lot left!

I'm not really sure how happy I am with it, I'm still thinking. I might experiment with other sweaters and other yarns.
