I found a few that say they use ribbon, but without knowing the gauge of the yarn or any other info it's pretty yard to help.

It's really easier to find a pattern THEN buy the yarn for it. I know how that goes though sometimes when you just can't resist some gorgeous yarn and buy it pattern unknown. :teehee:

See if any of these will work. Scroll down for some of the patterns. I have no idea how hard or easy they are.

This book has one that looks nice. (saw it on Ravelry)

I just noticed this was in the wrong forum so I moved it. What'cha Knittin' is just for works in progress (WIP) or finished objects (FO).
