The Crochet Lace Ribbon is a delicate and intricate design that adds a touch of elegance to various crafting projects. This versatile ribbon can be used as an embellishment for clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. The pattern involves creating a series of openwork stitches, often resembling flowers, leaves, or other decorative motifs. Here’s a general breakdown of how the pattern might be described:


  • Crochet thread or fine yarn in desired color
  • Appropriate crochet hook size for your chosen thread or yarn


  • Ch: chain
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Tr: treble crochet
  • Sl st: slip stitch


  1. Foundation Chain: Start by making a foundation chain of a desired length. This will be the starting length of your ribbon. Keep in mind that the ribbon can be made as narrow or wide as you prefer.
  2. Foundation Row: Work a row of basic stitches across the foundation chain. This row will serve as the base for the lace pattern.
  3. Lace Stitch Row: Begin the lace pattern row by chaining a certain number of stitches to create the desired height for the lace motifs.
  4. Motif Creation: In this row and subsequent rows, you’ll create the lace motifs. These can be variations of openwork stitches, shells, picots, and other decorative elements. The specific combination of stitches will form the intricate lace pattern. You’ll likely repeat this motif across the row, maintaining the desired spacing between each motif.
  5. Transition Rows: Intersperse rows of basic stitches between the rows of lace motifs. This helps define the individual motifs and adds structure to the ribbon.
  6. Edging: Finish the ribbon with an edging that complements the lace pattern. This could involve a row of scallops, picots, or any other decorative border.
  7. Final Row: Work a final row of basic stitches to provide a neat edge to the opposite side of the ribbon.
  8. Blocking: Once your lace ribbon is complete, block it by gently wetting it, shaping it to the desired dimensions, and allowing it to dry. Blocking helps the lace open up fully and enhances the overall appearance.

Usage: The Crochet Lace Ribbon can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Sew or attach it to the edges of garments, such as dresses, cardigans, or shawls, for a feminine touch.
  • Use it as a belt for a dress or a decorative tie for a purse.
  • Incorporate it into home decor, like table runners, doilies, or decorative pillow covers.
