Connecting Breakout Board to Arduino Headers with a Ribbon?

Hi all, super simple beginner question here but one I am having a hard time finding a concrete example of what I’m doing here.

I have an analog sensor on a breakout board, and I’ve gotten it working great with the breakout board plugged directly into the Arduino headers. However, I’d like to position the sensor elsewhere in my design, so I’d like to connect it via a ribbon.

I have this Male to Female ribbon… If I plug the breakout board into the female end of the cable, can I just plug the male end directly into the Arduino headers?

Yes, but make sure you don't cross any wires that you aren't supposed to (difficult to do in your situation with a ribbon and all).

Thanks, I’ll take care to position them correctly.

That’s helpful. I notice some of those wires are marked as having different gagues… The color of a wire’s insulation doesn’t correlate to the wire’s gague or anything, correct?

The wire insulation colour is not related to wire size.
