yOU ASKED IF EVER i MADE ANYTHING FOR CHARITY. I BELONG TO A GROUP OF WOMEN WHO KNIT, CROCHET OR QUILT FOR CHARITY. WE MAKE DISH(FACE) CLOTHES, LAP ROBES, SCARVES, HATS, BABY THINGS FOR CHARITY. WE USE UP LOTS OF LEFTOVER YARNS THAT ARE GIVEN TO OUR GROUP. IT IS WONDERFUL TO MEET ONCE A WEEK WITH THESE LADIES. WE HAVE A MEMBER THAT IS 94 OR 95 YEARS YOUNG AND SHE CROCHETS DAILY. SHE MAKES FIVE OR SIX LAP ROBES A WEEK. ONE DAY I WILL TAKE THE TIME AND TRY THIS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS BROOCH. WOOGEECOOCOO

I tried this pattern and it came out fine. I didn't use the markers. Ribbon: 1. (1st 4 chs skiped count as first dc) this is the first double crochet. 2. (2 dc in next ch) 10 times: this mean that you dc twice in ch 1, dc twice in ch 2, dc twice in ch 3, etc. by the time you complete ch10 you should have a total of 20 dc. 3. You should have a total of 40 dc when you are done. Edging: sc in the next 7th dc on oposite end: this mean that you are counting backwards - start on the 7th dc to single crochet then you continue to the 6th, 5th , 4th, etc. This is how I interpreted the written pattern and it came out fine for me.

This looks like a fabulous project to attempt, but it is NOT really appropriate for a beginner that has never crocheted before. I'm slightly more than a beginner and I'd like to add that I am also VERY confused on the pattern instructions like the others who have mentioned it here are. Not only are the abbreviations distracting, but the way the working of the pattern is described is VERY confusing. I'm going to assume that the 3 previous people who commented were not able to get in touch with Ms. Cylinda Matthews? I was hoping there would be an update/edit to the pattern, but it seems to be just as confusing when users "monkeyhart5 8317540", "mgbeheler 6666242", and "welchm1 8598005" read it, as it is today. Is there a crochet pattern for an "awareness ribbon" written especially for beginners? Thanks!

@welchm1 8598005, Cylinda Matthews for Crochet Memories is the author of this project. Here is a link to her website; perhaps she has contact information somewhere on her site: http://www.crochetmemories.com/ Best of luck! --Editor of AllFreeCrochet

I wonder how to get a message to the creator of this pattern. I am having trouble getting the white edging exactly right. If anyone has any pointers, that would be great.

I also found instructions hard to understand. (I haven't crocheted in a couple of years so I'm a little rusty.) Ribbon Problems: 1. (1st 4 chs skipped count as first dc) (mark first dc) Mark that chain, or the first real dc? 2. (2 dc in next ch) ten times (mark 2nd dc of first 2 dc made with a different color marker) I think that means to do a total of 20 dc in the ten chains, and to mark the second of the 20, but I'm not entirely sure. 3. The 40 dc at the end either means the row should now total 40 dc, or it means to do 40 more dc attached to the first bunch. I think it means total, because when I attached the extra 40, the ribbon didn't want to lay flat, and it seem too wide. 4. Then, I think it means that when I lay the piece down vertically, with right side up, the beginning slip knot will be at the upper left corner, with the foundation chain on the left, and the double crochet row on the right. Edging: 5. I'm not sure what sc in the next 7th dc means. Skip seven? Make 7? Typo?

the instructions an a little hard to understand
