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 is not critical for this project.


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


  1. Make a slip knot and place it on the needle.
  2. Knit the stitch, then knit in the front and back of the stitch. 2 stitches.
  3. Knit a row, then knit in the front and back, knit 1. 3 stitches.
  4. Knit a row, then knit in the front and back, knit 1. 4 stitches.
  5. Knit straight on these stitches until piece measures about 7 inches from cast on edge, or to about half an inch shorter than your desired length.
  6. Next row, knit 2 together, knit 2. 3 stitches remain.
  7. Knit 1 row, then knit 2 together, knit 1. 2 stitches.
  8. Knit 1 row, then knit 2 together. 1 stitch.
  9. Knit the stitch, cut yarn, thread through stitch and weave in ends.
