Awareness Ribbon Granny Square
Posted 28 February 2009 - 12:21 PM
I'm seeking an Awareness Ribbon framed in a Granny Square--just the one ribbon-twist, suspended in a square. I've found a couple of very nice crochet ribbons, but they're singeltons, meant to be mounted on a pin, not to be included on an afghan(unless you treat it as an applique). Personally, I like my crochet like I do my quilts: Pieced, as it were.
My Mum recently found a lump in her breast and in a preemptive strike (it IS confirmed as actual cancer) she is having her entire left breast removed. Her twin had breast cancer last year and went through chemo & radiation, and Mum would as soon that not be necessary. My Aunt is doing fine now and I believe (cross fingers, lots of prayers) that Mum will be too, but MON is the day and it's a little scary for all of us.
Can anybody help me with this?

--which reminds me, maybe there's one in the book the knot is in...? If it is I'll see if I can post a reference, for future purposes.

My biggest problem is that I even have a pattern for the single-loop ribbon itself, I just don't have the expertise yet) to figure out how to suspend it in a frame!

A kit to buy:
Not sure if I've seen a suspended one.

Thanks to all for the prayers, I'm very sure they helped!
In the meantime, until I can find the pattern (or figure out how to extrapolate) that I was after, I am instead constructing for her a "Shrawler", which is a cross between a shawl and a sweater, in Yarn Bee Cameo Bulky, in "Seashell", which is a soft peachy-pink. I have one I did for myself in Lion Homespun, Barley, which I have gotten many compliments on. The lady that made the pattern is Shelle Hendrix Cain, at crochetcabin.bravehost.com. If I get a chance I'll post a pic of each.
