At the end of row 6 join to the next st using a slst. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Pinch bow in the center and using a length of yarn, wrap it around the bow until you are happy with the thickness and width of the center. I wrapped it around approx. 18-19 times, pulling tight and keeping the wraps even. Tie off at the back to secure and sew in ends.

Alternatively, once you have completed row 5, slst and fasten off leaving a length of yarn approx. 90cm long. You then use this to wrap around the pinched center of the bow, tie off to secure and sew in ends. NB: For this method I did not sew in the end from the beginning chain. I kept it so I could secure the yarn after finishing wrapping the center by tying the ends together.
