Please define what you mean by "ribbon".

I haven't fully explored all the possibilities that multileaders has to offer so I can't answer your question.  Perhaps a custom lisp routine might be in order.

Maybe this method will work?  Requires a custom block.

I know a little bit about creating custom hatch patterns.  If you want to learn about the topic try finding Ralph Grabowski's three part series (an ebook I think) about creating hatch patterns.
