    What a creative way to wear a ribbon, I love this. I know someone who was looking for a way to add breast cancer ribbons to crocheted beanies, I’ll be sure and pass this on.

    Thanks for the pattern, Rachel! What a great idea! I recently received a pink ribbon in a store (since it was October) and I pinned it onto a jacket of mine (a jacket that has lots of bling!). But I think I will replace the ribbon with this crocheted one. Might even make it in other colors, too, like red. Thanks!

    thank you rachel. this is just what i was looking for.
    a childhood friend suffering from pulmonary fibrosis is in pittsburgh awaiting her lung transplant. this ribbon (in pale purple) will be a perfect “thank you” for a donation into the fish bowl at her benefit on 11-20. i will easily make 100 by then.
    sincerely, laura

    love this ribbon the only thing I have a question about is how to sew it together. I made one in orange and can’t seem to understand how to sew it together or attach it onto a project.

  12. Ellen says:

    Many craft shops have pin backs that have a way to sew them on. there are small holes in the bar part. I have used these many times and are not very expensive. sometimes the craft stores, if they know you are donating or just giving the handmade items away, will give you a bag of the pin backs for free.

    My brother has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer – I will be making purple ribbons for our family members. Thank you!

    My sister was DX yesterday with a very rare form of breast cancer. Less than 1% of women get this type of cancer. Next Thursday, they Will do a mastectomy. I am making these for my other sisters, brother, and family to wear that day to show our support! Thanks for the pattern!
