Think Pink:

This super-quick, easy to knit pink ribbon is a great way to show your support of breast cancer charities and your hope for a cure during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and beyond.

Of course this simple knit ribbon could be worked in a different color to show your support for other causes throughout the year.

  • about 7 yards medium weight pink yarn (I used Naturally Caron Country in Rose Bisque)
  • one pair size 7 US knitting needles
  • scissors and yarn needle

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for this project.

Size:

As shown, the ribbon is almost an inch wide and 7.5 inches long. You can knit it to any length you like.
