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.
