Cancer awareness ribbon

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)
–3.75mm hook
–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:

  1. I got a little confused at first cause I was following the directions above the picture and the caption directly below the picture. But once I saw that mistake, it was easy to figure it out. Thank you so much for this mini before bed project!
