    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.

    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!

    I’m part of Charity Crochet Exchange on Facebook. This month we’re making afghan squares with ribbons for different types of cancer we or others we know have experienced. Our chair will assemble the squares into afghans for Hope Lodge in Iowa. Thanks for the patterns, and the many others I’ve used over the years. Yours is the first crochet website I ever used.
