Crochet Awareness Ribbon free how to video pattern

This pattern has no shaping like other ones I have seen so it is perfect for the beginner! It could be a great way to teach someone to crochet and help them bring awareness to a cause!
My friend Ann Siggers ( you may have seen her watermelon twist afghan floating around online..)
has a Christian facebook group and we as a group will be making these all year in between our other projects so we can give a bunch out during October for Breast Cancer awareness and next year we will most likely pick another cause! What cause are going to make yours for and why? Email me ( crochetchiq@gmail.com)  photo of your ribbon and who it represents and I will post it here for everyone to see.

Here are some of the colors and their causes If I have left off one important to you please let me know and I will add it:
PINK - Breast Cancer, less commonly know for Birth Parents and childhood cancers as a whole
Yellow-  Support our Troops, Suicide, Bladder Cancer, ( a pale yellow)Spina Bifida, Endometriosis, a symbol of HOPE
RED- HIV/ AIDS, DARE ( drug abuse prevention) Stroke, Heart Disease,Stroke, Drug Abuse, Mom's Against Drunk Driving MADD,
Burgundy- Brain Aneurysm, Adults with disabilities, worn upside down for Cesarean Section, Headaches, Hospice Care, William's Syndrome,
Purple- Pancreatic Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Thyroid Cancer, Domestic Violence, Animal Abuse, fibro

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
