Show your support by knitting or crocheting a few yellow ribbons or creating one for each hostage. These ribbons can be prominently displayed in a public space or used to create a larger art installation in collaboration with fellow knitters and crocheters.

Download the patterns to begin. Then, display the ribbons on chain-link fences, trees, or walls using zip ties, staples, or yarn ties.

These knit and crochet beginner-friendly patterns work with a range of yellow acrylic yarns.
