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

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)


Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
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.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.

Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
