I wrote this pattern originally for a Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon and also one for World Down Syndrome Day (March 21st). To see the full blog post, visit And with that I bring you a guest blogger, Mardra Sikora, a local blogger, writer, and advocate. I jumped at the idea of having Mardra guest blog as those with special needs are near and dear to my heart. Make sure you read all the way to the end to see what the Good Life means to me. Enjoy!

Skill Level:
• Easy

• Any size hook, I usually use whatever size I am using for the project I am appliquéing onto. I would recommend size F – J for worsted weight or Aran yarn.
• Yellow, blue and white worsted weight yarn. Less than 2g (3 yds) each.
• Pin to hold ribbon in place while you stitch around it
• Yarn or Tapestry needle to weave in ends and to sew on to project if you are using the ribbon as an applique
• Brooch pin or barrette if desired
