The single rib crochet stitch is super simple to do. If you can double crochet and chain you're in business to whip up some awesome crochet texture!
Basic Chevron Stitch - Lots of Crochet Stitches
Make a magic ring. Ch 5, 3 tr in ring, ch 5, sl st in ring, ch 5, 3tr in ring, ch5, sl st in ring. Cut yarn leaving a tail at least a few inches long. Sew end through the first ch stitch at the very beginning and finish off. You create the center of the bow by wrapping the two ends under and then back over the bow a few times until you are satisfied. You may prefer to create a chain of stitches to wrap around the bow instead. Finish off and weave in ends. I like to leave the ends in case I need them to sew the bow onto something else.
