Crocheted Wire Ribbon Basket

crocheted ribbon basket



This basket is crocheted using really thick, 3 inch wide, wire ribbon. I used a sheer, off-white ribbon. It looks great filled with little pink rose buds. You could use a small plastic liner bowl to put in a wet frog and then perfectly arrange your rosebuds in it. It took a while to figure out what size crochet hook I used since it isn’t labeled. It’s a Q size, but you could use the largest hook you have as long as the gauge is one stitch per inch. Yes, that is correct; one single crochet stitch is a whole inch. The basket measures 5” wide and 6” in height. It is somewhat small, so it would be ideal for a flower girl in a wedding.

Tip: Leave the ribbon on the spool while crocheting.

Tip: Embellishments, ribbon roses on sides and bow, are optional.

Tip: Be sure to use wire ribbon. This will give shape to the basket.
