How to crochet a wrapping ribbon to decorate your Christmas gift.
Used yarn for Crochet gift wrapping ribbon
- 🧶 Swan Thai TRESFERE gold (cod. SW1-036)

You can use a different yarn, but choose one glitters to give a sparkling touch to the ribbon.
The size depend on your package. Make a chain that cover a part of it and then work the half double crochet inside the chain.
🎀 Crochet pattern to make a bow
Work in back and forth row forming a strip with half double crochet.
The bow will be make after and sew with some stitches on the strip.
To make the bow I follow the pattern in the post of how to crochet candy canes, but I work the bow starting from the middle and not from the side !
Follow the graphic down here and if you find difficulty, you can read the table where I explained all the steps.
Work 1 CH at the beginning of each row and do not count as a first stitch. Turn the work at the end of each row.
|1||Make 2 CHs and work 2 SC in the second CH from hook||2|
|3||1 SC in each stitches||4|
|4||INC, 2 SC, INC||6|
|5-7||1 SC in each stitches||6×3|
|8||DEC, 2 SC, DEC||4|
|9||1 SC in each stitches||4|
|11||1 SC in each stitches||2|
|14||1 SC in each stitches||2|
Repeat from 2nd to 12th row to make the other half of the bow.
Join the end with 1 SL ST and work 1 SC all around the bow.
Fasten off and cut the yarn leaving a long tail.
🎁 Instruction to make a crochet gift wrapping
Now that the bow is ready, let’s make a band of a number of chains needed to wrap one side of the gift box.
Work 1 HALF DOUBLE CROCHET in each Chain starting in the 3rd CH from hook.
Attach the bow to the tie and hold the end of the thread long that you will use to make several loops in the center of the bow and then secure it with two hidden knots. (watch the video tutorial)

♻ Recycle Idea to make a tag!
Once you have used all the wrapping paper to make your gift packages, keep the final cardboard of each roll aside, it will come in handy to make the labels to match each gift with the name of the recipient!
In the video, I show you how I made the label for my daughter “NICOLE”, with the “O” transformed into a cute snowman and the dot of the “i” like a snowball!
Make a hole, as shown in the photo, and insert a piece of gold string.
Write your tags using your imagination and if you like, you can write a nice Christmas thought inside.
The Christmas crochet project is finished!
