In honor of my friends Carrie and Raema, and all women facing breast cancer, I worked up a quick and simple pattern for a knitted breast cancer awareness pin. Feel free to share it with a link to this page.
Pink fingering weight yarn (I used Knit Picks Stroll), although any fingering weight will do
Size 0 or 1 knitting needles
Cast on 40 stitches using your favorite cast on method. I used long tail.
Knit 3 rows.
Weave in ends.
Cross your ribbon over to form a loop, and use a scrap of your yarn to secure it. I just used a sharp yarn needle to tack it down. Attach to your pin, and you are done.
It actually took me longer to bind this off than it did to knit it! Very quick and easy. You could do other memorial ribbons as well, just by changing the color.
