To make a cancer awareness ribbon like this:
You will need the following:
–Worsted weight yarn in the appropriate color for the cancer about which you want to raise awareness (I am using yellow for sarcoma)
–A yarn needle to weave in ends (my personal favorite being the Clover bent-tipped yarn needle)
Note: all stitches are worked into the ridge at the back of each chain
Using the hook and worsted weight yarn, chain 24:
Work an hdc in the second chain from hook:
Work 1 hdc in each of the next 7 chains (8hdc so far):
Work 2 hdc in each of the next 7 chains (22 hdc so far):
Work 1 hdc in next chain (23 hdc):
Skip two chains and work 1 hdc in next chain (24 hdc and one chain-2 space):
and in each of the 4 remaining chains (28 hdc and one chain-2 space):
Join with a slip to to the very first chain made:
Slip the right-hand end of the crochet ribbon through the chain-2 space as shown:
Weave in ends and secure the ribbon.
