Yarn Scraps for Crocheting Chain Stitch Wrapping Ribbon #crochetaday

I love to using the yarn scraps I have and make them into wrapping ribbon. Makes for a great way to use up every last bit!

1. Add a slip knot to your crochet hook. See the images below for a guide.

2. Chain as many stitches as you need for the package you’re going to wrap. Or you can stitch all the way to the end of your yarn if you’re using a small scrap piece.

Be sure you watch your tension. It can make a difference if you’re too loose or too tight. However you stitch, make it consistent.

3. When you’re done, simply pull the last stitch all the way through and pull tight.
